Charting impact

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

The Alliance for Shared Values is an umbrella non-profit organization serving as a voice for civic, cultural, and service organizations around the United States dedicated to promoting community service, education, and interfaith dialogue. The Alliances member organizations are founded by individuals who are participants in the Hizmet social initiative. The Alliance works with people and organizations of all backgrounds and faiths to promote greater understanding, cooperate on meaningful projects, and build stronger bonds.

Our goal is to build reliable relationships in order to collaborate on substantial service projects that benefit society and help promote universal principles to contribute to greater understanding and peace.

Alliance for Shared Values and its partner organizations bring together tens of thousands of people through various programs, including interfaith and intercultural programs and social responsibility projects.

Interfaith dialogue activities provide a platform for dialogue for members of the different faith and non-faith traditions to explore, discuss, and understand. The Alliance for Shared Values believes that interfaith dialogue as one of the most effective tools to counter social ills such as poverty, discrimination, racism, racism, and access to a lack of quality education.

The most imminent benefit of interfaith dialogue is that it provides a platform for people from different backgrounds to come together. As a result, they leave their differences aside and commit to working together to eradicate social problems.

Intercultural understanding in a multicultural society is fundamental to achieving a peaceful society. The United States and Canada have been a cultural mosaic since their foundation. People from different parts of the world have immigrated to the US and Canada to live better lives. As they traveled to their new homes, they brought with them their languages, way of living, cuisine, and cultural traditions. Because of the phenomena, both countries are called cultural mosaics. Like an art mosaic where colorful individual pieces are fitted together to make a single image, people from diverse cultural backgrounds come together to form one democratic and plural society. The Alliance for Shared Values promotes, supports, and organizes cultural events that serve as a platform for people from different backgrounds to get to know one another.

Alliance for Shared Values (AfSV) has a vast network of academic institutions and interfaith & intercultural dialogue organizations in the United States and Canada.
AfSV works with its member organizations to achieve its stated goals.

- Rumi Forum - Washington D.C.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: Jan 01 - Dec 31

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
