If you've ever wondered how you could help the poor, the marginalized, and oppressed of the world, here is your best opportunity.
Your gift provides help, gives hope and makes a better tomorrow for someone who needs your support and love.
World hunger can seem like a demoralizing problem. But there are in reality plenty of small steps you can take to make a big difference.
With your generous support, we are able to help provide for tangible and long-term improvements in the lives of street children, refugees and orphans in developing nation’s areas devastated by poverty, fragile social infrastructure, natural disasters, and armed conflicts. We work with Non-Government Organizations to deliver humanitarian relief; get provision of education, good food, medical care, and clothing.
Children the world over need to be loved, feel a sense of security and a chance for a better life. Our mission is to provide children with these basic opportunities. Your donation will go a long way in helping the hungry children stay off the streets and in schools and/or shelters in order to live a more sustainable life. Our future plans will also expand to address other areas, such as non-traditional forms of education, micro-economic & vocational development, and greater resource assistance to children already living on the streets
We are devoted to creating a positive change in the lives of as many hungry and abandoned children as possible. By breaking the chains of poverty, by obtaining an education, can this be accomplished. Every so often a life change only requires a few dollars and a supportive environment.

To get started:
GIFT IN KIND:
If you are a devoted Christian and committed to the poorest in Guatemala, you can donate clothes, shoes, food, medicine, cooking utensils, bedding, cleaning products or give us what we have available.
A year-end contribution to Caputo Children´s Fund (CCF) gives you the opportunity to select the amount of your deduction, to schedule the timing of your gift, and to determine the type of contribution you will make - options few other deductions provide. For example, you may choose to make your contribution in the form of tangible personal property, real estate or securities. In this way, you hae the advantage of a deduction without affecting your cash on hand.
What tax benefits might I realize by donating items that are no longer useful to me?
In USA, most often the 'fair market value' of the item can be deducted. Depending upon market conditions, the fair market value is often quite higher than the actual selling price. In many cases, when you factor in the value of your time, the tax donation benefit can often outweigh trying to sell the item yourself.
With the exception of marketable securities, donor's who wish to claim a tax deduction for donated items of non-cash gifts exceeding $5000 must substantiate the valuation with an expert appraisal - which Caputo Children´s Fund will entirely facilitate and pay for.
However, tax guidelines are highly specific and change regularly therefore Caputo Children´s Fund strongly recommends that you consult your tax advisor for individual and specific detail.
MAKE A DONATION TODAY AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A CHILD!
We can give the kids all the love in the world, but without money we can't put food on the table. Fundraising is a challenge for any charity - particularly a smaller one - and any help or support you can give is always greatly appreciated.
