Ambit Cares Celebrates Our One-Year Anniversary as a 501(c)(3)

While Ambit Cares dates back to 2015, it was one year ago today that it took a major step forward in its mission to fighting hunger in America: being recognized as a 501(c)(3) organization.

That was important for a number of reasons:

  • Achieving tax-exempt status meant that we were able to do more good in more communities with the funds we raised.
  • All donations to Ambit Cares became tax-deductible. This enabled us to broaden our appeal to a wider selection of potential donors, including our more than one million Customers.
  • It reflected our commitment to our cause. Achieving and maintaining 501(c)(3) status requires adherence to a strict set of regulations. When potential donors see that an organization is a 501(c)(3), they know that organization takes its mission seriously.

And what a difference we’ve been able to make in the past year! Thanks to the thanks to the generosity of our Customers, Consultants and employees, since July 18, 2017, Ambit Cares has donated:

  • More than $176,000 donated.
  • Over 180,000 pounds of food.
  • In excess of 6,700volunteer hours.

But much remains to be done. Hunger still affect one in eight Americans. That’s while you’ll find Ambit Cares promoting volunteerism every quarter, hosting events like Strike Out Hunger at our upcoming AMBITION 2018, conducting matching donation fundraisers and more.
