OVERVIEW

Who We Are

 

SAS is incorporated in Washington DC and tax-exempted under 501 (c)(3) code of the IRS with EIN number 85-0864320. SAS is committed to delivering to its charitable mission in full compliance with US regulations, which prohibit the use of personal fundraisers and remittances to provide charitable donations (article §542.512, B).
