What are CoEd badges?

CoEd badges are our little way of celebrating the ways you are breaking the cycle of poverty in Guatemala through education!

You can earn badges by joining one of our giving societies like our Legacy Society, Leadership Circle, or The Cooperative, going to Guatemala with CoEd on a tour, or sponsoring a student in the Rise Program, to name a few.

How do I know if I’ve earned any badges?

If you’ve given a gift in the past, you can log in to your CoEd account through the Donor Portal on our website to access your badges. If you have not set up your account yet, click the button and use the instructions below to log in and access your account.
