Donate


Our monthly giving program is the most convenient and effective way to support our work.

Monthly donations provide reliable, ongoing funding to our projects and your gift will help children in some of the poorest and most remote areas of Peru and Bolivia access teachers, books and countless educational resources that would otherwise not be available to them.

Does your workplace participate in the annual United Way campaign?  You can designate Alma as your charity of choice and United Way will direct your donation to us. United Way sends notification of all gifts twice a year, so please let us know if you’ve pledged your contribution to Alma and we will follow up on your behalf.
