How to Help

Donate Now link for online givingHow can I help?

Like all organizations the CDCA needs funds to operate.  We operate mostly on individual and small group tax-deductible donations: a lot of people giving a little.  We receive no government funding.  People are amazed at what we accomplish with small gifts of $25-$100.  It is easy to give online, and you can sign up to make an automatic monthly donation online.   If you would like to be a part of this work financially, please click here, and if you’d like some specific ideas that need on-going funding, check out a starter list by clicking here

We also need volunteers… individuals and groups.  Our individual volunteers are able to see and experience firsthand the lives of Nicaraguans and how the CDCA operates.  We do charge a per diem for our volunteers who help us on-site except for two special positions: volunteer coordinator and IT volunteer.

Our delegations come to work, learn from speakers, see a bit of Nicaragua, and share their lives with the Nicaraguan people as well.

Delegation members bond not only with Nicaraguans but also with each other as the result of this shared experience.

If you are unable to come to Nicaragua, get in touch with us because you can help where you are by collecting or looking for items that we can use in our various projects.
