Supporting the cause

Welcome to AmSoc Bogota

The American Society of Bogotá is a non-profit association founded in 1939 whose purpose is to promote and facilitate understanding between citizens of the United States and Colombia, through the holding of social, cultural, and educational events that strengthen those ties.

Scholarship Programs

Scholarship Programs .

Our members, sponsors, and private supporters help contribute to the American Society’s promise to promote education in Colombia and provide full scholarships to children in need. We are committed to accompanying a sponsored child throughout their educational development, from kindergarten through high school, relieving impoverished parents of the financial responsibility.

Since the program’s inception in 1972, we have raised more than a million dollars in scholarships for Colombian children and have successfully graduated hundreds of students.

Should you want to help us, please consider a donation.

A wonderful opportunity to acquire Colombian art for a reasonable price and, at the same time, help us continue support children and families who are suffering terribly from the consequences of the pandemic. Due to this year’s circumstances, we are taking this event virtually and are opening it to the public.
