****If you have already made a school sponsorship payment for 2013
(a one time complete payment or a monthly subscription payment), then please disregard this message.****
Greetings from Mayan Families!
want to thank you again for your generous support in 2012, making it a
great year for Mayan Families Student Sponsorship Program! In November
we sent an update concerning our 2013 Sponsorship Program changes. As
you might recall, we are simplifying student sponsorships for 2013,
streamlining the sponsorship fees so that it is the same price for every
student from Preschool to High School at $30 a month ($360 a year).
We also introduced the option to co-sponsor students at $15 a month
($180 a year) for those who want to sponsor a child, but cannot commit
to a full sponsorship. If you did not receive this newsletter, you can
find the information on our website by clicking here. There is also more information about sponsorship on our newStudent Sponsorship FAQ Page.
are sending you this message to remind you that we are now accepting
payments for the 2013 school year for your sponsored students, and that we would like a commitment from all sponsors
who plan to continue their sponsorships in 2013. To renew your
sponsorship(s), all you need to do is make a minimum payment of $30 for
full sponsorship or $15 for co-sponsorship, which you can do by
clicking here. You can also pay via check sent to:
Mayan Families P.O. Box 52 Claremont, NC 28610
While our initial deadline for this first payment was December 31st, we have extended the deadline to January 31st.
We want to see as many students as possible continue studying in 2013.
In Guatemala the school year begins in January so we are now in the
process of distributing school supplies. Without sponsorship
commitments, many of our students are in danger of not continuing their
studies in 2013
If you have not made a
commitment for 2013 by making an initial payment of $15 or $30, we
encourage you to do so as soon as possible. If you have any questions or concerns, please email our Education Program Coordinators at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for all your continued support! You are truly
making a difference in these students' lives by providing the gift of
