AFG Acquires 501(c)(3) Status

April 1, 2019

San Marcos resident E. Tyson Terwort wanted to end HIV transmission—not just for the residents of Hays County, but for people across the globe.

With a strong belief in the power of community-level intervention and grassroots movements, Tyson established the Aware Foundation Group, a nonprofit organization based in Central Texas that’s focused on providing medical, educational, and social services with a focus on HIV and AIDS. The “aware” in the nonprofit’s name is a reference to sexual health awareness, which is critical to ending the HIV and AIDS epidemic.

We’re happy to announce the Aware Foundation Group was granted 501(c)(3) status on October 24, 2018! Acquiring this status will help us spread the word about our mission and goals, expand our network, and apply for funding to better serve the communities we work with.
