April Fundraising Update

Just two months into the fundraising campaign and we have already raised $537,619 of our goal of $1,000,000 pesos for the building expansion project.

A combination of fundraising events organized by the incredible Capital Campaign Committee, donations from board members, and individual donations have gotten us there! We couldn’t be happier or more grateful for the incredible show of support from all the wonderful people who make up the Merida English library.

We still have lots of work to do. If you want to help but don’t know how, here are some ideas!

  • Make a donation (scroll down for instructions)
  • Keep checking our website and Facebook page for more fundraising events and opportunities!
