Matching Gifts

Many companies match charitable contributions made by employees to eligible nonprofit organizations. Find out if your company will match your philanthropic donations and leverage your own contribution to USFUVG.  (Often one has to make his/her gift through the company’s internal giving platform in order for it to match the gift.) Claim the match today and have your generosity go further! Questions – please contact us.

Amazon Smile

 Amazon will contribute a small portion of the proceeds to USFUVG—at no additional cost to you—when you shop through and choose USFUVG as your charity. Look for items that say “Eligible for AmazonSmile donation.”

Asset Gifts and Planned Giving

Gifts of certain non-cash assets, such as appreciated stock, IRA assets, life insurance policies, and more, are a wonderful way to support education in Guatemala. If you would like to start a conversation about planned giving to USFUVG, we would welcome that.  For more information, please contact us.
