ASM is organized as a Nonprofit Public Benefit Corporation for charitable and educational purposes within the meaning of section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. In the true sense of Give & Take and their strong belief in friendship and tolerance, the members actively engage in supporting charitable and educational activities for children living in poverty. It is a proven fact that poverty significantly impacts the education of children. Lack of resources such as books, school supplies and technologies hinder their ability to engage in learning activities and successfully complete homework.
