We are a tax-exempt public charity (501(c)(3)) as of  August 26, 2011.

While our work is costly by Ecuadorean standards, it is inexpensive by the standards of the United States. Tuitions costs vary widely; the Universidad Nacional is highly subsidized so that the annual tuition is about $200 a year. The private universities that our students attend vary from $1800 to $4600 for annual tuition. Additional expenses for transportation, food, materials, conferences, English classes, and crisis funds average $200 a month per student. So, it takes about $5000 a year to support one student.

We welcome your contributions, whatever the amount. Your contributions go directly to support of our students, since the work of the Fund is done gratis by the members of the Board.  We need and value your help. Below we indicate what a given level of contribution can support.
