Donor Appreciation

In addition to all the individuals who make our programs possible year after year, MADRE relies on businesses and foundations to enable our work with women and families worldwide. We continue to be awed by the many creative ways in which MADRE supporters help us realize our mission. Thank you for all you do for the women and families in our sister organizations.
