AMSG Supports Veterans through Donation to Armed Services Arts Partnership
Advanced Management Strategies Group, Inc. (AMSG) furthered its commitment to the military veteran community with its largest-ever charitable contribution of $40,000 to the Armed Services Arts Partnership (ASAP) to combat isolation and improve veterans’ well-being through the arts.
This contribution funds ASAP’s initiatives, including ASAP’s Combat to Comedy performance at Caroline’s on Broadway in New York City on Thursday, September 15 where AMSG is the Stage Sponsor. The night of laughs will feature comedy sets from ASAP military veteran comics and celebrity comedians.
Jim O’Farrell, AMSG’s President & CEO said the following, “As a Veteran-founded and Veteran-led business, we make it our mission to support our Veterans, service members, military family members, and caregivers. And as a person who believes in serving a higher purpose, I sit on the board of ASAP because it is the healing power of the arts that has contributed to ASAP’s members being able to reacclimate themselves after returning home from duty.
Since 2015, ASAP has consistently provided an outlet and a safe space for more than 2.000 servicemen and women. As a result of participating in ASAP’s programs, members report feeling more resilient, and self-confident. We are honored at AMSG to be able to provide resources to help Veterans on their healing journeys and find connection and purpose. We look forward to connecting, sharing laughs, and fostering community this September in New York City!”
Brian Jenkins, ASAP’s Executive Director shared, “When Jim told me AMSG would contribute $40,000, I was floored — it’s so encouraging to have a partner like AMSG that genuinely cares about improving veterans’ well-being. AMSG is here for the impact, not the recognition — and we are deeply grateful to receive their support. This generous gift will have a tremendous impact on hundreds of veterans’ lives.”
