Donating Money

Centro Maya Project is a non-profit, tax exempt charitable organization under 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. All donations are fully tax-deductible as allowed under the law.

Centro Maya Project depends upon donations from individuals, families and groups to fund its programs.

All administrative costs are paid for by a small group of donors so that 100% of your donation will be applied directly to programs. Donations of any amount will make a difference in the lives of the Mayan families being served.

Checks should be made out to Centro Maya Project and sent to:

Donating Used Hearing Aids
The hearing aid program is an important direct service provided by Centro Maya Project. Under this program, serviceable used hearing aids are fitted with new ear molds cast locally in Guatemala. Currently, we can accept behind-the-ear hearing aids only; we cannot accept in-the-ear aids.

Find more information about the hearing aid program.

If you are interested in donating serviceable hearing aids, please first contact us with a description of the hearing aid(s). Thank you.
