Make This A Meaningful Holiday
Give A Gift That Makes A Difference
Your gift helps support a cycle of caring, sharing and learning that
spreads from family to family, up and down the mountainsides.
Gift of Hope
Keep a teen in school with a scholarship. In this mountain region of the country only 5% of teenagers graduate from high school, due mainly to the cost – school is not free in Guatemala.
Gift of Literacy
Books and literacy – education doesn’t happen without them. Early literacy skills are proven indicators of academic success. Let’s put books into the hands of parents and their children to get them off to a good start.
Gift of Community
Support the dreams of these communities through projects like their health clinic – their only local access to medical services, a library that offers computers and homework help, or the children’s art & music programs.
How The Gift Program Works
Instead of material gifts, choose gifts that honor your friends or family – gifts that will provide the opportunity of education and literacy in Guatemala.
When you make a donation in someone’s name, we will mail them a beautiful Guatemalan card with your personalized message, letting them know of your gift.
It’s a quick way to find a very special present. By sharing your compassionate spirit this holiday season, children in Guatemala are well are on their way to brighter days.
La Montaña Fund
La Montaña Fund is a United States 501(c)3 nonprofit organization formed by past students of the Mountain School as a way to give back to the wonderful people who extended gracious hospitality and shared their lives with us during our stays at the school.
Most of the families in these communities live hand-to-mouth yet they welcomed us with smiles and patience and generosity. We want to give some of that back to them. Make a donation any time throughout the year.
