A Brighter Future for Chile,

One Child at a Time

The Chilean-American Foundation is a non-profit, non-political, tax-exempt charitable organization chartered in Washington, D.C. in 1990 to provide financial support for social projects benefiting underprivileged children in Chile. 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.

Our members are Chileans and friends of Chile, and our staff is composed exclusively of volunteers located in the United States and Chile. You can also be part of the Chilean-American Foundation and help to continue supporting development programs for those that need the most. To volunteer or request more information please contact us at chileanamericanfoundation@gmail.com.

(Español) *Nuestra Fundación ayuda a la Escuela Rural Agua Corta — Región del Bío-Bío*
Nuestra Fundación no es ajena a las emergencias o desastres naturales que vive Chile. Es por esto que a inicios de este año 2017, desarrollamos una campaña de recaudación de recursos para ayudar a la Escuela Rural Agua Corta, ubicada en la comuna de Hualqui, Región del Bío-Bío, que fue destruida por los devastadores incendios forestales que arrasaron al país. Nuestra ayuda permitirá levantar un Invernadero educativo, con el objetivo fortalecer aprendizajes vivenciales para sus estudiantes.
