2.  If you are in the Chapala/Ajijic area and would like to donate in cash, (sometimes this is a lot easier for us!) please contact us at this e-mail link or call Kari at +52 333-820-4927, and we will arrange with you for a convenient pick up place/time.  Please also provide your cell or phone #.

3.  If you want to make a bank transfer from outside Mexico directly to Poco a Poco, 
     please contact us so we find the best way for you to do this. 

4.  If you want to make a bank transfer to us from within Mexico, please click here to
     email us.

  5.  If you would like a US tax receipt, you can donate to us via the Foundation for Lake Chapala
      Charities - click here to reach the page for information on how to do 

     They use PayPal so if you wish you can make regular donations to us - that is wonderful!  Or you
      can send them a check, or arrange a wire transfer, or they w
ill pick up cash donations in the
      Ajijic/Chapala area.)
Note: As of March 2023, if your donation is for more than $250 US, and you would like a US tax receipt, consider making a wire transfer directly to the Foundation for Lake Chapala Charities, as it will arrive much quicker.  (Check donations above $250 US can take months to clear and now incur local bank charges.)  

Unfortunately, because of the different Canadian tax laws, we are unable to provide
Canadian tax receipts.  So if you are a Canadian, and want to donate, please use this GoFundMe page or contact us to discuss other other ways we might be able to receive your donation.

If you have a preference of where your donation is to be used, please let us know via email, so that we can respect your wishes.
Since 2022, one of our biggest challenge is raising funds for medical expenses.  We are helping many families with essential, life saving medicines and services (hemodialysis, home dialysis supplies, anti-rejection drugs for renal transplant patients).  Normally these medicines and services would be provided by the public health system at a low cost for these impoverished families, but since covid, funds and public hospital staff are currently not available to provide these services. 

Of course there are other programs that need your support too! 

If you want to support the Kids' Kitchen that Anita is running at her house (until it moves to the new community center land), we would love your help!  

And we also need:

-  Financial help so we can continue to 
build the community center on the land we have purchased;
-  Financial support to keep our truck running and getting it serviced. 
Our truck (thanks to
   Ravi), is more rugged than our old one, but it still needs regular maintenance.  In 2022 we paid         20,000 pesos for new tires, and another 10,000 pesos for essential repairs;
-  Financial support to pay for the office expenses for WiFi (so students can do
   their homework), electric bills, gas and electric for cooking;

-  Clean drinking water for the Kids' Kitchen at Anita's house, as well as refilling the water cistern
  which is used for cooking, cleaning, and washing hands;

-  The ongoing costs of supplies used for First Aid (First Response) at our medical
-  Ongoing projects that give people in these areas ways to make a living, with pride.
