When you donate to Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots, there are two basic categories to choose from: A Sponsorship or a General Fund donation. Both types underwrite the work of Centro de Esperanza Infantil in Oaxaca.
A Sponsorship donation supports a single student a for school year. Sponsors learn the names of the students and receive an annual letter from him or her updating their progress in school.
There are two levels of Sponsorship:
Donors may sponsor as many students as they wish. Nearly all of the almost 700 students in the CEI program have sponsors.
Note: Donors who to wish to provide additional financial support to a student or his or her family must do so outside of Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots. U.S. regulations prohibit our charitable organization from transferring money directly to individuals. (See our policy on Direct Donations). We prefer for reasons of fairness and transparency that donors contribute via Oaxaca Streetchildren Grassroots. However, Sponsors who wish to give additional aid to a family on their own may do so via a money-transfer service (such as Western Union or Xoom).
General Fund donation
A donation to the General Fund may be of any amount and supports those students who do not have specific sponsors as well as offsets the costs of administration and salaries, maintenance of our historic adobe building, food, psychological services, and other benefits offered by CEI.
Sponsorship and General donations can be made in various time frames:
