Double your impact through December 31st!

Unrestricted donations matched through December 31st

Some donors have stepped forward to provide matching funds for our end-of-year giving campaign. That will allow Pura Vida to welcome new scholarship students into the program—and enable you to increase the impact of your unrestricted giving through a dollar-for-dollar match. We are incredibly grateful for this opportunity.

Our goal is to raise $15,000 in unrestricted gifts by December 31st. With matching funds, this can raise $30,000 for Pura Vida programs. Your donation helps us cover costs while we match students with long-term sponsors. It also helps us increase the effectiveness of all of our programs.

Christmas Milk Program 

Support our annual Christmas Milk Program and help brighten the holidays for a poor family in Guatemala! Your donation will help us provide milk to children in rural Guatemala.  [ Donate Milk ]

Give an Alternative Gift for Christmas

Make a tax-deductible contribution of $20 or more and we will send you a high-quality gift card which you can send to a friend or relative, telling them that a donation has been made in their name. Funds received will be applied either to the Christmas Milk Program or our Unsponsored Student Fund, depending on the card you select.

We are again offering the Christmas milk card "Poinsettias" by artist and Pura Vida student Patricia Tecun. We are also offering a more traditional milk card, as well as a separate card for the Unsponsored Student Fund, featuring students in our program. The latter card may be sent for any occasion.

November Insight Trip returns

We had a great trip in early November, visiting sponsored students and getting to see Pura Vida's impact in Guatemala firsthand.
Annual Gathering a Success!

We had the highest attendance ever for one of our events.  Thanks to everyone who  participated and volunteers.  You can view photos from the event here, courtesy of Bill Barnard.
News for Student Sponsors:

Final grades are now coming in from students in the scholarship program. We should know final results for the year by mid-December. We will let you know how your student did then.

Letters from your sponsored student were emailed to you on the evening of Sunday, December 1st.  If you do not see a letter in your Inbox, please check your junk mail folder.
