The 20/22 Act Society Donates Over $1 Million Dollars

At the end of an atypical year for all, where challenging news has been the order of the day, the 20/22 Act Society announced a record in the distribution of funds this year helping more than 30 non-profit organizations on the Island. The grand total distributed to date was $1,085,000.

“Since 2013 we have made a strong commitment to support charitable organizations in the Puerto Rican community,” said Robb Rill, founder of The 20/22 Act Society. “This year despite all the difficulties that arose, we were able to impact over 30 organizations, by offering the financial support they needed so badly to continue their commendable work. Our commitment is for our members to be net contributors to the island through employment, investment, and charitable contribution. Collectively, the metrics bear that out, not with just these donations, but overall employment by the 20/22 community which is in excess of 40,000 jobs and capital investments throughout the island which are now in excess of a couple billion.”

Of the organizations to which the foundation contributes, those that work for health care and well-being stand out due to the relevance they have during the period of health emergency that is being experienced worldwide.
