  • Endowment - a secure future for Monteverde Institute and a plan for Monteverde Institute to become a granting source to fund sustainable projects in the Zone
  • Unrestricted donation (to be used wherever most needed). Since the overheads for our community programs are covered by study-abroad trips such as yours, 100% of unrestricted donations go directly to community programs.
