2017 UAA Tax Records
United Assyrian Appeal was founded in 2015 and transitioned to being recognized by the IRS as a not-for-profit 501(C)(3) charitable organization in 2016. UAA continues to provide aid to Christian families of soldiers who were battling ISIS and fighting to keep the root of Christianity alive in Iraq and Syria. As ISIS lost ground on the battlefield in 2018, UAA continued to support the military families in their effort to support the displaced families of Assyrian Christians in Iraq and Syria. One of the many International non-governmental organizations we continue to team up within the region is the ETANA Woman’s Organization. ETANA supports impoverished women and children in northern Iraq.
In 2017 UAA Net Donations received/collected were $50,603. $50,000 plus of the total donations were distributed either directly to the beneficiaries or part of the expenses related to the execution of the program that distributed the benefits. $29,000 plus, 58% of the total dollars donated distributed in the form of direct grants to the families.
There was an anticipated drop off in donation dollars from 2016’s $200,000 plus amount received in donations, given the Assyrian Army force structure transitioned off the battlefield on 7 August 2017.
In 2018 UAA began its transition in support of Governance Line of Effort in Iraq and along with our mission to support the Assyrian military families we also supported the educational programs and began transitioning for 2019 in support of the Development Line of Effort in the region in support of the Assyrian refugees returning home to Assyria Nineveh Plain (ANP).
