No matter how big or small, your gifts offer life-giving aid that have the potential to transform the lives of tens of thousands of our Mesoamerican friends. At any time of the year, Horizons welcomes donations by cheque, credit card or cash.


One of the most effective ways you can help is to join our Sustaining Donor Plan with a pledge to support development year-round. Most of our supporters have opted for this easy and cost-effective way, which allows vital aid to be distributed where it is needed most. Monthly donations can be made by cheque or credit card.


A memorial gift or ‘gift in honour’ is a beautiful way to recognize and celebrate the memory of a loved one, by carrying on their spirit through charitable giving. It can serve as a testament to the life of a beloved family member or that of friend who has passed on. It may also be an appropriate way to express compassion for someone who is experiencing a loss.

The legacy you create through Horizons’ memorial gifts will provide friends and family an opportunity for tribute, all while supporting Central American & Mexican communities for generations to come.



Do you own securities or mutual funds that have increased in value since you bought them? Then making a direct donation of those shares is the more tax-efficient .


Often a significant gift to Horizons of Friendship is not possible in life, but a charitable bequest could allow you to make a major contribution.
