Our Impact

While we receive an appropriation from the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation to support our mission and administer shared programs, our budget relies on additional gifts and grants to support our programs for US alumni. As a US nonprofit organization, AFAvH is required to generate at least 10% of its operating budget from public support and as a US 501(c)(3), we must actively fundraise to support our work and demonstrate public trust as part of our charitable tax status.

Our goal is to raise $100,000 for the 2024 American Friends of AvH annual fund that will support the following programs:

  1. Alumni Council US Engagement Awards that provide funding for alumni-led events around the country.
