Thank you for supporting Friends of the Oaxaca Learning Center. 100% of your gift is tax deductible. FOLC is a registered 501(c)(3) charity, EIN: 27- 4937593. 


99.8% of the costs of running the Center's program are met by generous donations from people like you.  Students are asked to pay a contribution of $300MXN (just under $15US) per semester, if they are able to, although more than 75% of our students are not able to pay even this small amount and they are provided scholarships to attend for free. 


The best way to support The Center’s work in Mexico is to make an online donation. We accept credit cards, PayPal, G Pay, processed through a secure connection. 




The most sustainable way to support The Center’s work in Mexico is to become a recurring donor.  With a monthly contribution, you can support students all year round. And our monthly donors get early access to events, impact information and more.

When you donate you will be given an option to invite others to donate. Studies all show  that a donor asking their friends, family and network to contribute, results in a 1 in 4 chance of our receiving a donation as compared to 1 in nearly 1800 chance when the organization itself solicits new donations. Your fundraising efforts make a BIG impact for us. If you have any questions about creating a page or want some fundraising tips from our staff, email us at 


By making a legacy gift to The Oaxaca Learning Center, you know your values will be carried forward, supporting young people in Oaxaca for generations to come. 

There are various ways to make a legacy gift: through your will or trust, by designating the Learning Center as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy, retirement fund, or other assets.    


Perhaps you are just beginning to think about your future plans. Or may your family or other circumstances have changed, and you have realized it's time to update your plans to reflect your current needs and wishes. These gifts require no immediate donation: the gift only comes after your lifetime, and you can maintain your ability to change your mind at any time.
