Contributions


 

We’ve noticed that there are a lot of people working to do good things within our adopted local communities. There are many of you out there who do not mind rolling up your sleeves for a good cause. However, there are probably more of you who would be delighted to simply make a financial contribution, especially if it could be made a little easier.

Our objective here is for Que Pasa subscribers to be aware of worthwhile local charities and offer an easier way to make ongoing or one-time contributions. This simplified path should be a real benefit to increasing the results of your fundraising efforts, as well. We therefore offer this Contributions page to spotlight charitable options in our subscriber readership area and connect readers with information about, and links to, those in need.

Keep in mind there are two ways for a person to donate financially:

  1. directly to the individual organizer(s); 
  2. funds can be donated to a bank account


To list a charitable effort:

  1. Listings will only be accepted for charitable efforts benefiting our local Que Pasa readership focus, the cantons of Grecia, Sarchi (Valverde Vega), and Naranjo.
  2. Please provide a name, brief description and/or mission statement to promote your charitable effort (limit this description to 150 words--you may also include up to 3 photos if available). Feel free to include a note about a current project or ongoing need.


Give us information about how contributions can be made:
Option 1) provide information about how donors can give money directly to you; or
Option 2) provide bank account information to which contributions can be made:

Option 2 might sound a bit complicated, but it's not that difficult and you only have to do it once.

Please provide the requirements listed above to me at: editor@quepasagrecia.com.

Que Pasa's disclaimer: we are not able to endorse or guarantee the worthiness of any project or effort we include for your consideration. You will be able to read about each cause and decide for yourself as to whether it is worthy of your support. Donors are responsible for their own due diligence.
