My children and I have volunteered with Mayan Families twice now and are amazed by the incredible work they do within the community. We can't wait until we can go volunteer again.

Mayan Families
February 2, 2011

I have supported Mayan Families for 4 years now. I love the small grass-roots nature of the organization. Because of this, as a donor, it's a very personal experience. I get updates on the students I sponsor several times a year. If the family of one of my student's need something specific, one of the director's of Mayan Families will let me know. Also, because of the grass-roots nature of Mayan Families, the portion of donations that goes to overhead is very small. I love that this charity is not just focused on helping now but on giving people skills and supplies that will help them become self-supporting.

The Great!

The continued education of the students I sponsor, the holiday food baskets I've paid for for their families, as well as other things I've gotten for my students' families, such as stoves, water filters, etc.
