Mayatan Foundation owns and operates the Mayatan Bilingual School. The Foundation is a registered, tax-exempt, non-profit, non-governmental organization in Copán Ruinas, Honduras, Central America.
The Foundation is comprised of 16 Board Members, including the three mothers who founded the school in 1991. Foundation members give their time and advice free of charge. Members join by invitation and are elected internally to positions within the board. The entire board meets annually, and members involved in day-to-day operations meet at monthly Executive Direction Meetings.
Approximately 45% of Mayatan Bilingual School students receive some level of financial assistance from Mayatan Foundation. In addition to directly supporting students’ educations, the Foundation receives donations from our generous national and international sponsors. Tax exempt contributions from the United States may reach the Mayatan Foundation through Hope for Tomorrow, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit institution.
