Mujeres Unidas is a reg­is­tered asso­ci­a­tion in the coun­try of Peru.  It does not have 501c3 sta­tus in the Unit­ed States, because of the organization’s grass­roots nature and to elim­i­nate the need for over­head costs.  One hun­dred per­cent of all grants and dona­tions go to imple­men­ta­tion of pro­grams.  It is pure­ly led by and com­posed of girls and women in the com­mu­ni­ty. The orga­ni­za­tion is not affil­i­at­ed with the gov­ern­ment, polit­i­cal par­ties, oth­er NGO, or any reli­gious institution.

Where will your mon­ey go? One-hun­dred per­cent of your mon­ey will be used towards the des­ig­nat­ed pur­pose of the dona­tion because all the work for Mujeres Unidas is done on a volunteer/community ser­vice basis.  The women are striv­ing to be self-suf­fi­cient in three years (by 2013) and hope to raise funds with­in these three years to meet all of their objec­tives so that they can ful­fill this goal of self-sustainability.

We are cur­rent­ly work­ing with tax experts to see if tax exemp­tion for dona­tions made to Mujeres Unidas might be a possibility.
