On January 24, H&R Block contacted ABS Community Research and invited us to be part of their nonprofit referral program. We are very honored by this opportunity to join other organizations across the US in this cause marketing initiative, following H&R Block’s independent review of our charitable qualifications.

If you or a friend are a new customer to H&R Block for personal or family 2014 tax filings, H&R Block will make a nominal corporate contribution to ABS if the servicing branch is presented with this flyer, showing our ID number. This is not a deduction from your taxes. Click here for more info and to download the flyer for your visit.

In turn, ABS will apply the contribution to one of our international advocacy and charitable programs. We find H&R Block to be a great affiliation, given ABS supports NGOs, village associations, and faith-based missions in administration, strategic planning, fundraising, financing, transparency and accountability.

Each group that ABS currently supports shares similar needs for humanitarian assistance: health development, water resources, local agriculture and food security, electricity and alternative energy, job growth and economic security. As part of strategic planning, representative diaspora collaborate and refer to each other’s models in designing long-term sustainable solutions.

With ABS support, each group also engages direct collaboration with government leadership in the host country, while maintaining all financing in the US. No monies are sent to the foreign countries, nor to foreign governments. Rather, goods and personnel are financed in the US, then deployed with education programs, cooperative regular monitoring of uses and distribution. 9. image-fc5ef608a97367bc840aeaf68faef3a5000406a4a4de927156f8bfb
