The Chilean-American Foundation was chartered in Washington, D.C. in 1990.  We fund small projects in Chile that help children develop their talents, realize their full potential, and learn to cope with life’s challenges. Currently, our mission is focused on improving the quality of education for vulnerable children.

Chile, and the rest of the world, is suffering the ravages of the COVID-19 pandemic. The impact of this pandemic has been devastating, especially for low-income families. We appeal to your generosity to mitigate these effects on the children and adolescents of the two projects that we are already supporting in Cerro La Merced in Valparaiso and in rural schools in the district of Tome.
