About Us

Semillas para el Futuro is entirely supported by private donations and by the labor of volunteers from Gutatemala and the United States. Incorporated as a non-profit organization in Guatemala, its programs are overseen by a bi-national Board of Directors. A small part-time staff manages day-to-day operations.

Semillas is recognized as a non-profit organization by the Guatemalan government and is recognized as an 501c3 non-profit organization by the U.S. Treasury. Contributions ca be made to either organization (see How to help).

Semillas is affiliated with a U.S.-based community assistance non-profit called Amigos de Chocolá.

Together, these organizations form a platform to help the people of Chocolá, support archaeological preservation of the great pre-classic Maya city beneath the modern town and to work toward economic development programs which are owned by and benefit the community and which minimize damange to the achaeological site and the more recent historical German finac buildings.
