We are currently raising $11,000 for a 7-day trip to Comalapa in Guatemala to help build a school out of waste materials.  Donations of all amounts are greatly appreciated.  No amount is too small!!

We are selling Get Fresh Crew Environmental Activity and Coloring Books for $5, T-shirts for $15, Bottles of Recognition for $25, and Tires of Recognition for $50.  Local business owners can show your support for the community by purchasing a tire or becoming a sponsor.  Tires are on display at UMass-Boston and also have an online home on our website.  Your tire can display your name or can be purchased in honor or memory of a loved one. 

The best way to donate is by check.  Please make your checks out to UMass-Boston.  In the memo section of the check, write: Upward Bound Trip to Guatemala.  Mail your checks to:

Erica Pernell
UMass-Boston Upward Bound
100  Morrissey Boulevard
Boston, MA 02125

If it is impossible to donate by check, please donate by dropping off cash in person.

Last resort:  Donate online by visiting UMass-Boston’s Online Giving page.  The form asks what you would like your donation to support.  In the section labeled other, please write: “Upward Bound Trip to Guatemala” and let us know that you’ve donated by emailing so that we can track down your donation in the online system.

Fill out the section labeled "Other" with "Upward Bound Guatemala Trip" to be sure your donation goes to the right place!
