GIVE REGULARLY

Ensure that AMAF is able to dependably and continuously provide the Martial Arts programs, workshops and demonstrations you love to participants in the community.

It’s convenient. AMAF will automatically deduct your contribution from the account of your choice, until you tell us to stop. This means no more reminders to renew. Plus, all the benefits that come with being a donor remain yours to enjoy. It’s powerful. By eliminating administrative expenses, more of your contribution goes towards AMAF workshops and programs and strengthens AMAF’s work. It’s enduring. Spreading your support over time is easier on your budget. Plus, it gives AMAF the security of a steady, reliable stream of support.

 

You’ll feel great knowing that you’re continuing to support AMAF’s fundamental programs. And it’s easy to give! Just choose the amount you want to contribute; either monthly, quarterly, half yearly or yearly and fill out the donation form. It’s that easy. If your circumstances change, you can choose to increase, decrease, or suspend your monthly gift – just let us know.
