A.P.P.S. Philanthropy

Assertively Promoting Philanthropic Services, Inc. (A.P.P.S.) is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit incorporation founded in 2009 by Megan Mincey that provides social services, extra-curricular programs and events for inner-city residents.


Assertively Promoting Philanthropic Services (A.P.P.S.) Envisions providing a safe and unwavering positive environment for individuals and families within their communities starting with Paterson, NJ.

 A.P.P.S. Takes pride in providing motivational environments that welcome change, positive reinforcement and role models from average community outlets.

Due to budget cuts, governmental programs including developmental , extracurricular, and recreational , have been forced to downsize or have been eliminated. If we do not find alternative and creative solutions to uplift our communities (especially our youth) then we are simply setting them up for failure. Without support and positive intervention, many will be forced to face obstacles and peer pressures that can be prevented.

It is our responsibility to contradict and challenge the works of gangs, drugs, budget cuts, institutionalization, self-hopelessness and any contributing factor that obstructs a safe transition into becoming a productive citizen. Most importantly, my vision is to revolutionize and prepare participants to compete in a continually advancing technological and economical society. The creation of such programs and activities will provide an opportunity to experience self-evolution and strong leadership, self esteem and PRIDE that otherwise might not be available as our youth face the ever present challenges typical in an urban environment.

The Mission:

The mission of Assertively Promoting Philanthropic Services, Inc. (A.P.P.S.) is to pursue the following principles:
