    FAQ

    At any given time, there are over 50,000 youth in care homes in India who face aging out at 18, with no ability to support themselves.

    We have the opportunity to give them the means to build a life of economic stability, which will not just impact them, but also their future generations.

    We are a IRS-approved 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Our Federal Tax ID is 82-4259548.

    The estimated average program cost is $1000 per youth (up from $800 due to increases in tuition, lodging and staff costs in the past four years).  This includes cost of providing career counseling, support for vocational training or higher education, life skills coaching, job placement and mentoring for two years. This modest amount has a huge transformative impact, breaking the generational cycle of poverty.

    The AFEC operational costs are covered by a different source of funds. All your donations go to provide youth services, and are used as follows.

    55% – Direct costs/youth: tuition, lodging, food

    35% – Indirect Costs: staff costs for career counseling, helping with enrollment and housing, mentoring (1 staff/50 youth)

    10% – Infrastructure costs: Program development, staff training, data collection, monitoring and evaluation.

    AFEC ensures clear collaboration by signing comprehensive MOUs with partners, outlining program and reporting commitments. Monthly and quarterly updates, along with detailed expenditure reports, are required. Partners employ our data model, facilitating program analysis. We conduct site visits for assessment. 


    AFEC retains full control over grants, enabling us to withdraw from partnerships if milestones are not achieved.

    We are looking for high-impact donors to assist in shaping strategy. There are also a number of opportunities for volunteering.

    Yes. You can do monthly donations using credit card or ACH.
    For other ways of giving e.g. stock donations, direct wire transfer, IRA charitable rollover etc. please contact us for detailed instructions.

    Yes. Donating appreciated stock held more than one year means donors generally can eliminate the capital gains tax they would otherwise incur if they sold the assets and donated the sale proceeds. 

    Donors who itemize deductions when filing their tax returns may also claim a charitable deduction for the fair market value of the assets. Eliminating the capital gains tax can increase the amount available for charities by up to 20% and increase the deduction amount. See this for more detail.

    Yes, there are tax benefits to donating from your IRA funds. IRA rollovers especially benefit the nearly 40% of Americans who do not itemize deductions and therefore do not receive a tax benefit for their charitable contributions. For other advantages and details, see this for example.

    We can accept donations in Indian rupees. Please contact us for detailed instructions.
