Additional Information


You & Us for Manta’s Children Inc. is a registered non-profit organization in the State of Kansas. We have USA 501(c)3 tax status, which allows US citizens to claim tax deductible donations. We provide our own time, talents and financial assistance, along with seeking donations from individuals, organizations and companies in Ecuador and around the World.


The Board of Directors is elected annual by the community of supporters. Projects and activities within our two priority areas of service are determined annually by the Board with input from the broader You & Us community of supporters. There are no remunerations or honorarium paid to Board Members or volunteers. 


We promise to be ‘good stewards’ and that every dollar of your donation will go to help continue our work on behalf of the disadvantaged Children of Manta, Ecuador. It is only through the generous donations from our supporters and the time and energy of our volunteers that we are able to carry out our Mission.

Your support is gratefully acknowledged by the Executive Board and many friends of YOU & US for Manta’s Children.  ​We Thank You.
