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.
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!
Since the lockdown in Puerto Rico we haven't stop working. From day one, we moved all the operations of AFC to work from home, establish new alliances, look for the nonprofit's needs to move our services to it, coordinate the provision and provide all our services online to keep helping the people that serve the most vulnerable people in our island.
It hasn't been easy, nonetheless we have thrive in times of global pandemic. Thanks to your help, our board members, volunteers, colaborators, and the team we have offered 11 workshops for free to 3,121 participants. In this two months we have offer workshops on how to solve present issues since the pandemic in human resoures, taxes, technologies to work from home, emotional intelligence to strenghten the people that help others, potential risk of lawsuit, Cares Act Credits, and developed a virtual library with 24/7 access to information and the workshops provided.
Also, we have provide technical assistance, to nonprofits with the Payment Protection Program of the Cares Act so they can complete the application of the loan that will condonend and in our regular services related to accounting, compliance and others. To make this possible we have establish new alliances with Associations and experts to help the nonprofit sector in this time.
