Your participation in the events organized by the Chilean-American Foundation, our sponsors, donations and contributions that we obtain constitute the sources of income that allow us year after year to continue marking a positive difference in the lives of disadvantaged children and youth in Chile.

The Foundation periodically holds entertaining social and cultural events in which hundreds of friends of the Chilean community residing in the United States and friends of Chile participate.

    Double your donation on Tuesday November 29, #GIVINGTUESDAY2022 to help the most vulnerable children and adolescents in Chile. Imagine what we can do with $10,000! Share with your friends to reach this goal.

    Yes, Chile is far away from here, but we can still help those in most need. Together we can raise enough funds so that they will count with our programs of Technolody education, sports, University preparation, or dorm scholarships and others in 2023.
