This educational foundation is an amazing composite of hard-working volunteers, dedicated to supporting the mission and goals of its founding members. Thousands of children around the globe have been allowed educational opportunities where there were few available to them before. Hope for a better future has been given to those who had little. As a volunteer/staff member who had the privilege to travel to Mona supported projects both in Panama and Haiti, I can more fully understand and appreciate the impact of the project improvements in each country. By encouraging the directors of each project to outline their own development choices, the Mona Foundation builds capacity within each project, from the ground up. 100% of designated contributed funds go directly to the project and 97% of general fund contributions are sent to the projects. This foundation can be trusted to do what it says it will do--support and educate marginalized children and improve their life-long opportunities because of it.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
working with the donors and the staff for the last ten years. The staff is committed to improving and expanding their impact each year and Mona donors are generous, caring individuals who sincerely want their contributions to count toward positive change.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
the candid approach to everything they're involved with.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
amazing, dedicated individuals who truly believe in their work.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
make such an impact that other non-profits would just wonder how it was done! It's my feeling that the Mona model of social and economic development should be replicated over and over.
