More than 30 Years Helping Children in Chile

See the video celebrating our 30th anniversary helping children in Chile!

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.

FOOD AID PROGRAM
Dear donors and friends,
Chile continues to go through a difficult situation due to the Covid-19 pandemic in which the economic and social conditions have affected families with fewer resources dramatically. Unfortunately, children and young people are being affected, both in their mental and physical health by various restrictions. Due to the closure of schools, many children can no longer receive their food previously distributed by schools, so malnutrition, which had practically disappeared, threatens our children again.
The Board of the Foundation has made the decision to give priority to the use of the resources collected in 2020 to cover FOOD AID programs for children and adolescents in situations of extreme vulnerability, instead of the regular programs.
If it is within your means, we ask you for a CONTRIBUTION SPECIFICALLY DEDICATED to this FOOD PROGRAM, to increase the resources to be sent.
You may donate by sending us a check drawn to Fundación Chileno-Americana, to our postal address P.O. Box 73651, Washington, DC 20056-3651, or by clicking on the DONATE button on this Web page.
As always, we greatly appreciate the support you have provided to disadvantaged children and adolescents in Chile. We will keep you posted about this program.
