Support Help financially provide education, nutrition and support, and foster hope in our children and their families.

Donations

GRACES funds both Escuela Integrada and Proyecto Capaz with donations alone. It is a part of GRACES’ vision to develop sustainability projects, and we are actively working in this area. However, for the time being, our organization runs entirely on donations. Any donation is extremely helpful and necessary.

Sponsorship Program

Sponsorship is another way to get involved and personally support a child in Guatemala. Our Sponsorship Program is an extremely important part of our organization. Not only does it allow us to financially provide education, nutrition and support, but it also fosters hope in our children and their families.

They know they have a cheerleader who is rooting, encouraging and praying specifically for them. Sponsors are able to communicate with their sponsored children. Supporters at all giving levels receive the GRACES newsletter, regular updates from the school, and an invitation to attend the Annual Supporters Gathering and Graduation in Guatemala.

Benefactors, lovingly referred to by the children as “Padrinos” or “Godparents,” can join the Sponsorship Program for $90. The children write letters and video chat with their sponsors throughout the year.

Classroom Sponsorships are also a great way to support our programs. Classroom Sponsorships financially support our programs, and connect sponsors with our teachers and staff members. Classroom Sponsors are able to give at three different levels: Premium Sponsors at $1000 per month, Gold Sponsors at $500 per month, and Silver Sponsors at $250 per month.
