Thank You

Our heartfelt gratitude goes to those who have recently given to Monteverde Friends US or to the Monteverde Friends School! If you know of a donor that is not listed here that should be, please accept our apologies and send us their name at so that we can add them.  We are updating this list almost daily!

Thank you to those who gave to Monteverde Friends 60th Anniversary in the Canopy Campaign! (Donations for the general fund or scholarships received in April and May 2011 have all been put toward this campaign.)
