Big Give Emergency Relief Fundraising Campaign
Academia América is participating in the BigGive emergency fundraising campaign for nonprofits due to the impact of the CoronaVirus Pandemic. As we know many immigrants were left out by the stimulus programs passed by Congress. We are asking our friends and supporters for donations to help us keep the immigrant community informed of the need for protective measures and of available resources to help them survive the crisis. Our Goal: $12,000 by May 31st.
Academia America is celebrating 12 years of service to San Antonio’s Immigrant community. We have advocated for immigrants and Social Justice since our founding in 2008. We have partnered with other immigrant advocates and nonprofits to sponsor and co-host naturalization clinics and know-your-rights forums. We provide citizenship and civic education, naturalization services and external referrals. Our clients are majority working class and women. We are a volunteer driven organization with no high-salaried staff.
We Are Proud of Our Accomplishments:
- 10,000+ clients served
- 2,000+ have enrolled in our Nuevos Ciudadanos Citizenship Education Program
- 1000+ of our clients have acquired U.S. citizenship
- We have provided numerous voter education and registration workshops to engage immigrants in our community’s civic life and culture.
These are trying times. We need your donations now more than ever! We suggest a minimum donation of $12, one dollar for each of our twelve years of service, or in multiples of $12 if you wish to donate more. For the past 12 years Academia América has advocated for immigrants and Social Justice! You can too with your donation!
