Become a member of the Monteverde Community Fund today and support community projects!
Getting involved is more important than ever.
By becoming a member of the Monteverde Community Fund, you will be actively supporting the change and betterment of the community. Every time you pay an annual fee, you are helping the Community Fund's team in our efforts to empower the different groups of people that exist in the community while promoting solidarity, inclusion and participation of people in the community.
We invest in what matters!
We open spaces so organized groups in the community can bring us potential solutions to their needs and together we seek funds to do so.
We all have to earn a living in a way that nourishes, not degrades, our community and our natural environment. This is why we have supported projects like La Tilichera, Monteverde's first barter store and los Verdes, a new social currency in the community.
We've helped finance local projects that address local environmental challenges such as forest connectivity, protection of water resources and urban sanitation, among others.
Response to the crisis
We recognize the importance of strategic planning and preparation for natural disasters, pandemics, and emergency situations. This is why we created the Emergency Fund, born during the Tropical Storm Nate crisis and reactivated to support the community through the Covid-19 pandemic. Learn more here.
