Our family of supporters is as diverse as each member is compassionate — each one finds a way to get involved that is meaningful to them. Check out a few of their stories below, then
Jon & Julia
The Tyger Family
Casey & Kathy
Retired teachers Casey and Kathy continue to promote education through CoEd’s Leadership Circle, by pledging to sponsor a CoEd program each year for three years. They explain, “As retired teachers, we know the value of education and understand the effect that books will have on the lives of the students. We’ve received hugs from parents who know how the books will improve the lives of their children.”
The MacMasters have been devoted supporters for more than 10 years, sponsoring scholarship students, traveling to Guatemala, giving through our Leadership Circle, and even hosting an Atlanta version of our annual fundraising bash. Now, they’re passing on their values of service to future generations—Michele brought her son Ian on our Enrichment tour so the two could work together on a hands-on service project.
Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation
The Dorothea Haus Ross Foundation works to alleviate the root causes of suffering experienced by vulnerable children. Supporting our Thousand Girls Initiative enabled the foundation to reach indigenous Maya girls in Guatemala with education and youth development opportunities that empower them to lift themselves out of poverty.
Cristian has been instrumental in connecting CoEd to the Rotary world in Guatemala. He is an active part of our worldwide network with Rotarians, the Guatemala Literacy Project (GLP) and has also supported CoEd personally. He even reached out to CoEd to help host a visit from 2017-2018 Rotary International President Ian Riseley at our Education Center campus in Guatemala, dramatically increasing our visibility to Rotarians worldwide.
