Our donors are encouraged to specify the programme that they wish to support and we disburse the funds accordingly. Disbursements are dependent on invoices being submitted by our partners as specified in our contracts.
Monarca’s continued support of these much-needed programmes is entirely dependant on the continued generosity of Canadians.
Our annual overhead costs are minimal (approximately 2% of donations received). Monarca has no paid staff.
Our Board of Directors continue Monarca’s commitment to the needs of the people of Los Cabos and we thank all of our donors for their ongoing generosity.
On behalf of the Board of Directors
