We are pleased to partner with two organizations whose mission aligns with ours by acting as their fiscal agent
Menomonie Community Garden - We are happy to be the fiscal sponsor of this great local gardening group.

Bread for the World - Each year we take part in the Empty Bowl event in Menomonie WI
We've spent a lot of time on the ground in Guatemala and Honduras, which gives us a clearer picture of what’s going on down there. We’ve had the opportunity to work with many inspiring individuals and groups, such as:
Open Door (Puerta Abierta) Children's Library - offers creative learning opportunities to Santiago Atitlán, Guatemala children through preschool and kindergarten classes, after school enrichment programs, reading hours, homework help, and the traveling library, which spreads the joy of reading to the most remote parts of Santiago.
Hospitalito Santiago Atitlan - is a small private nonprofit hospital serving 75,000 Maya living on the southern shore of beautiful Lake Atitlán in the Guatemalan highlands.
Sharing the Dream - is a non-profit organization that promotes fair trade with cooperatives and small businesses in Guatemala. We are committed to providing fair wages and employment opportunities to low-income artisans, which will result in creating sustainable markets for their products.
Guatemala Human Rights Commission - dedicated to promoting human rights in Guatemala.
