FUNDRAISING

Fundraising helps to extend our network of WINGS supporters outside of Guatemala, and provides much needed financial assistance to our programs so we can continue providing vital services to Guatemalan families. Whether you are sharing information about WINGS with a group of friends, hosting an event in support of WINGS, or coordinating a larger initiative, every person that you talk with and every dollar that you help to raise has a profound impact on our ability to sustain our programs.


SUGGESTIONS FOR FUNDRAISING:

Interested in volunteering at WINGS?

Because of the sensitive nature of our programs, and the trust that is required for our Educators to be effective in the targeted communities, we do not offer field-based volunteer positions. However, you can still make a huge impact as a volunteer by helping out our busy office and providing us with specific skills that you have that we need! We occasionally offer summer internships for Masters of Public Health (MPH) students who have skills in program monitoring and evaluation. If you would like to further discuss volunteering at WINGS and find out where we can most utilize your skills, please send an e-mail with your résumé attached to voluntarios@wingsguate.org or periodically check back on our website for new opportunities.
