Celebrate Give to the Max Day with AFMSP!Fundraising
Support Minnesota's only French cultural center by giving to AFMSP on Thursday, Nov 15. On Give to the Max Day your donation can go further! Each donation through our Give MN page enters the Alliance into an hourly raffle for a $500 "golden ticket." 

Our board of directors will also match the first $2,000 of donations. Help us pass our goal of $4,000 on Give to the Max Day 2018 to support our classes and programs that celebrate international cultures and la langue de Molière.
