We rely on kind supporters like you!

We accept donations in Ecuador or the USA. For the latter case we created an afilliate foundation, Friends of Mindo Cloud Forest in Brattleboro, Vermont. "Friends" received certification of its 501(c)(3) status in October, 2014, and will provide the necessary tax letter or receipt when requested. Donations can be made with major credit cards through a PayPal secure payments system (we do not ever receive or store your payment information). Alternatively, we do accept paper checks mailed to our address in Vermont:
