We depend on the support of our donors. Thank you so much for your donation!
Together We Can Guatemala (EIN 83-0829379) is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit corporation registered in Pennsylvania. Your donation is tax deductible.
If you would like to donate online, please click the PayPal button below. If you're in the United States, you don't need a PayPal account to donate; the PayPal button will accept a major credit card in lieu of an account.
Donating through Facebook is a great option for large donations because Facebook absorbs the transaction costs that most organizations, like PayPal or GoFundMe, would pass on to us. For example, PayPal charges us about 2% on donations we receive, but Facebook gives us 100% of each donation.
One problem with Facebook is that they take a month or so to give us the donation. But that's okay. We'll wait! Another problem is that they don't actively tell us when you donate, so we might not realize that you've donated until they send us your donation a month or more later. So let us know if you donate through Facebook so that we can thank you in a timely way!
To donate via Facebook, just go to the Together We Can Guatemala Facebook page, and click on the Donate button. (It may not be available in all countries.)
If you want to donate online and you don't like PayPal and Facebook, another great option is GoFundMe. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you donate through GoFundMe:
Your donation actually goes to a charity called PayPal Giving Fund. That charity, in turn, will donate to us.
GoFundMe will ask you for a tip for their services. None of the tip goes to Together We Can Guatemala, but it does help keep the GoFundMe platform working.
GoFundMe does not actively notify us of your donation, so it might take up to a month for us to realize you have donated this way.

Are you over 70½ years old and have a non-Roth IRA?
Unfortunately, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017 made it unlikely that most people will still be able to deduct donations on their tax returns. However, if you are over 70½ years old and have a non-Roth IRA, there's a tax loophole available to you! You can instruct the institution that has your IRA to donate all or a portion of your Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) to a charity. That donation reduces your income for the year, thus resulting in lower taxes than if you had donated the same money out of non-IRA funds.
If you would like to make that kind of donation to Together We Can Guatemala, most financial institutions are familiar with the process. But if you have any questions or problems, please contact us at email@example.com and we'll help set it up.
