Alonzo Mourning Charities (AM Charities) is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) public fundraising foundation. AM Charities' mission is to encourage the educational development of our youth by creating programs and youth enrichment centers that promote positive change in low socioeconomic communities.
Since 1997, AM Charities has raised more than $6.5 million for various programs that aid in the development of children and their families. In addition to supporting other non-profit organizations, Mourning has focused his attention to stimulating the development of youth enrichment centers. With the help of donors, Mourning opened the first center in 2003 in the historic area of Overtown, in South Florida, known as the Overtown Youth Center.
A major component of AM Charities is the Honey Shine Mentoring Program that works to empower young girls to shine as women. The bi-weekly workshops and summer camp that make up the program helps develop and nurture the mind, body, and soul, of young women by providing experiences that enlighten and create balance in their lives.
With your participation, Alonzo Mourning Charities can continue to make great strides towards helping to change lives. For more information visit www.amcharities.org.
