PEACE Punta de Mita is one of our local foundations that work hard to improve the quality of life of our communities, always looking for new ways to influence social change within the local villages, a change that would endure over time, creating programs designed on the principle of “a hand-up, not a hand-out”.
PEACE Team is wonderful, but they wouldn’t be able to achieve as much as they do without the valuable support of all their kind donors, they are a core part of this organization, allowing them to do more for our communities.
As every year, starting in May and through to the end of the calendar year, the PEACE Board of Directors will be making contact with Punta de Mita area residents for its annual 2019 PLEDGE FOR PEACE fundraising campaign with its purpose to fund operations, consisting mostly of education programs, with the largest being teaching English to more than 1,100 area students.
Since the majority of PEACE donors prefer to make their donations towards the end of the year, PEACE directors concentrate their main fundraising efforts in November and December. Now with only 6 weeks remaining for this year’s campaign, the PEACE directors are actively contacting potential donors with the goal to raise over US$400,000 to cover estimated operating costs of 8 million pesos. Donors are asked to consider an annual pledge in one of the following donor categories:
Patron – USD20,000+
Benefactor – USD15,000
Companion – USD10,000
Member – USD5,000
Friend – USD1,000
