Fiscal sponsorship is often used by newly formed nonprofits that need to raise money during their beginning phase, before they are recognized as tax-exempt under Internal Revenue Code Section 501(c)(3). AGS, as your fiscal sponsor, enables you to attract funding for its operations that will, through AGS, be tax-deductible to your Donates.

Population(s) Served

We want to support organizations that have retreats, seminars, conferences etc. that facilitate enhanced thought processes, growth, vision, self-identification and fulfillment while facilitating empowerment.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

And the answer is this: It’s time to move to the place where we can provide
more support for our community, empower more people to become all they
can be and be a support for those who have lost hope due to decisions they
made for their lives that were wrong. This will involve a lot more people
providing input and help. Though money is always a need for a non-profit,
hands are a need as well.
To all our advocates, partners, grantees, and friends, thank you again for all
your hard work and perseverance!
We know that our vision is attainable — if we continue to work together.

Our commitment to positive change in the
world demands that we serve as many as we
can according to their needs, no matter where
they are. We know that we cannot do it all and
we are not trying to, but we want to help other
organizations whose mission lines up with ours
so together needs are being meat and lives are
being changed. The ripple effect happens when
those we help make a positive impact on their
community, state, nation, and the world.

This year we revamped the organization, Took
a hard look at the work and progress of the
Board of Directors, solicited administrative
and organizational support and we made a
difference in the organization.
