ABW 501c3 announcement

Securing 501(c)(3) Status, a Triumph in Humanitarian Dedication

Actions Beyond Words is celebrating a significant milestone in its journey. The organization has officially obtained 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status from the IRS in the US. Obtaining this status is more than just a legal designation; it is a validation of the organization’s commitment to serving humanity.

The mission of ABW has been clear from the outset: to respond promptly to global humanitarian crises, providing vital support to communities in distress. Obtaining 501(c)(3) status is not just about paperwork, but about strengthening the organization’s foundation, ensuring sustainability, and expanding its reach to those who need it the most.

At ABW, we understand that actions speak louder than words. Our team works tirelessly to navigate the complex landscape of humanitarian aid, overcoming bureaucratic hurdles and logistical challenges to deliver tangible support to the people of Ukraine. The achievement of 501(c)(3) status is also a validation of the trust placed in us by the communities we serve and the supporters who stand alongside us in our mission.

As we celebrate this milestone, we reflect on the impact of our work in Ukraine. To date, ABW has delivered over 1 million British Pounds’ worth of essential supplies to communities, shelters, and families across the country. From food and water to clothing, generators, and communication equipment, this essential aid provides a lifeline to those in their darkest hours.

But our journey is far from over. The attainment of 501(c)(3) charity status is not just a milestone for Actions Beyond Words—it is a testament to our commitment to transparency, accountability, and responsible stewardship of the resources entrusted to us by our donors and supporters. With 501(c)(3) status in the US, we can further amplify our impact, mobilizing resources and support to reach even more communities in need. As we look to the future, our resolve remains unwavering, and our goals and mission remain the same.

Our next significant milestone is to establish a charity within the United Kingdom, increasing our global footprint and giving us additional resources within Europe.

We stand ready to respond to whatever challenges may arise, whether in Ukraine or elsewhere in the world. With your continued support, we can continue to turn compassion into action, offering hope and healing to those who need it most.
