Donate to Yucatan Peninsula Mission

Yucatan Peninsula Mission construction project.

When you donate to YPM, you can be assured that every dollar goes toward serving the needs of the Mayan/Mexican population in the Zona Maya region of the Yucatan Peninsula. 100% of the money you donate will be transferred to our affiliated entities located in Leona Vicario. YPM is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and your contributions are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.

Furthermore, our affiliated entity in Leona Vicario is established as an “asociación civil”, which is similar to a nonprofit as we have in the US, and carries similar responsibilities of oversight. We are confident that each dollar we transfer to them is used to directly advance our mission. So much is being accomplished with your help. Construction continues in local communities and on the grounds of Instituto YPM, a University level education institution and currently we are in the process of installing a clean drinking water facility.

We appreciate all donations, which are changing lives and improving conditions for many.
