Operating Guatemala Mission and its various projects are dependent upon individual donations. Individual and group donations of any size are greatly appreciated. As little as $10 or $20 does make a difference! All the families we help are impoverished so any donation will make a real life difference in reducing a struggling family's daily hardship

Simply send a note with your check or online donation including information about who your gift honors, and provide contact information for the person who should receive the gift acknowledgement. Guatemala Mission will send an acknowledgement letter to that person as well as a receipt to you for your donation.

Matching Gifts - Match Your Donations:
Your company may have an Employee Matching Gift Program. These kinds of corporate matching programs give you the chance to double or, in some cases, even triple your contribution. If you have any questions about your employer's matching gifts program, please contact your human resources department.

Team & Community Fundraising:
Your willingness to help raise funds for Guatemala Missions strengthens our ability to support our special projects in underserved communities and less developed villages here in Guatemala.
