AGF Fund Drive Looks to Grow Go

Monday December 22, 2008

The American Go Foundation is conducting its annual fundraising appeal, asking players who love go to support the growth of the game. “We’re doing more than ever to bring in a new generation of players,” says AGF President Terry Benson, “and we’re doing it with generous donations from American players, not with foundation or government help. The AGF is a 501(c)3 charity, so US donors can deduct their contribution from their taxes.” The AGF has many new offerings, Benson explained. “This fall we added the newsletter for teachers, a Teacher Store, a lesson plan cooperative for teachers, more types of teaching equipment, and we are working on a college scholarship program,” Benson said. “We can now accept credit card payments and donations. In today’s financial climate, we need all the help we can get. Even small amounts matter. Whether someone contributes to the AGF General Fund, to help go education and outreach like the website, or to the Summer Go Camp Scholarship Fund, they’ll join hundreds of others who make AGF work possible .” To contribute, download this form and fax with your credit card info or mail with a check.
