Support Our Mission

Support Our Mission


Scholarship ReceipientsOver the years, our mission has made an impact on countless students, instructors, and industry professionals. Our ability to help others comes from the support we receive from our donors. Each donation that we receive is guaranteed to make a positive change in someone’s life—regardless of its size.

There are many ways to make a contribution to the AWS Foundation. The two most common methods of giving are with cash and stocks.


Cash donations are the easiest way to support our cause. If you wish to make a cash donation, you can either write a check for the desired amount, or you can donate through our website. Cash contributions are ideal for making a quick one-time impact. In other words, your gift will go directly to those who need it.  Donations by check may be sent to the AWS Foundation, 8669 NW 36 Street, #130, Miami, FL 33166.


Donating stock will also ensure that our work continues to impact others in a positive way. Unlike gifts of cash which will make an immediate impact, stock contributions involve a few more steps. Before you can sell your stock, and have it sent to the AWS Foundation, you will need to notify us in advance of the sale. Once we are notified, we will provide you with instructions to be given to your stock broker or financial planner to finalize the transaction. Once the transaction has been completed you will receive an acknowledgement from the AWS Foundation.

Other Ways to Give

Cash and stock contributions are both great ways to make a lasting impact on our work. However, they are not the only ways to donate. If you would like to support our cause in other ways, please contact your financial planner for more information.

Who to Contact
