Due to the pandemic in AFC as in all non-profit organizations (NPO) we had to reinvent ourselves. Resulting, in the offering of fully online webinars and modules for the first time. In addition to the technical assistance service offered to organizations in aspects related to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), virtual office implementation, among others. With the PPP services provided, more than 40 non-profit organizations obtained in total over 2 million in aid to maintain the payroll. At the same time, the AFU internship continued, also the implementation of 7 modules and the offering of webinars according to the emerging needs of the Third Sector.
We are currently working on a campaign so that people displaced from their jobs due to the pandemic are reintegrated into the work environment in Puerto Rico, this through pasoapasopr.com
Hope you and your family are good and healthy. A new year is always a new beginning and a opportunity to keep going with the things that remain undone.
Last year we reinvent ourselves by:
expanding our internship program called AFU to a one year experience,
provide the internship for the first time completely online,
begin our webinars and
begin the implementation of our educational modules for the nonprofits.
We also provide orientation to 44 nonprofits so they can apply for the Paycheck Protection Program and assist over 50 organizations through the Technical Assistance Program.
This year with more strength, knowledge and experience we will go foward. Thanks to your help we have done all of this imagine what more we can do. This year undoubtedly is a fresh start for all of us.
Thanks for join us in these adventure,

Since the beginning of the pandemic at AFC, we have not stopped. We have moved all our services online to continue supporting non-profit organizations in Puerto Rico, who in turn support those in need. As our workshops are face-to-face, we have begun to offer affordable webinars so the essential services on the island, now more than ever, continue. At the moment we have offered 18 workshops with more than 4,000 participants, to 1,923 nonprofits, impacting more than 60 municipalities around the island. To keep providing this service we need your help.
Donate and keep up helping and give opportunities to others!
