Thank You for Your Support and Generosity

Although UPAVIM supports its daycare and preschool through the sale of its crafts and supports part of the schools budget, the school and other programs rely on generous donations from people who believe in what we are doing and want to help. Ultimately our goal is to work towards being self sustaining, but it is a long uphill battle. We gratefully accept donations to our programs and are extremely appreciative. UPAVIM has received support from numerous churches, individuals, stores, non-profit organizations, and foundations since the cooperative began in 1988.

All donations are tax-deductible in the U.S.A.

The UPAVIM Community Development Foundation (UCDF) is a 501(C)(3) organization based in the United States. Aside from advising the women when needed, our mission is mainly to raise funds for the programs UPAVIM offers in Guatemala. All money received from donations goes directly to UPAVIM programs, except a very small amount used for stamps and envelopes to thank donors,
