Donate to CANFRO

There are six ways to donate:

1. Interac e-Transfer
2. One-time payment using PayPal
3. Cheque through the mail
4. Cash (while you are in Oaxaca)
5. Recurring donations through
6. Arranging for a Legacy Gift

Please note that although we are a volunteer not-for-profit organization, we have ongoing operating expenses. Our Board of Directors has approved a small automatic deduction from each donation to cover these expenses (held at 5% since 2014). Donors may wish to consider the net amount that will be available to their selected project(s) after this deduction.
