Monteverde

Monteverde has felt a deep economic impact by the recent events in the world: with the arrival of COVID-19 to Costa Rica and the new lockdown on our borders preventing tourists from traveling into the country, a large percentage of our community will have little to no income for the following months, as many businesses have had to let employees go in the midst of this uncertainty. Starting today we will use our platforms to collect donations and redirect all funds to the local Emergency Commission.

COVID-19 Response

Monteverde has felt a deep economic impact by the recent events in the world: with the arrival of COVID-19 to Costa Rica and the new lockdown on our borders preventing tourists from traveling into the country, a large percentage of our community will have little to no income for the following months, as many businesses have had to let employees go in the midst of this uncertainty.  After Hurricane Nate, we recognized the community's ability to unite in response to adversity, and the need for a centralized fund that can redirect donations in a transparent and timely manner. For this reason, we have joined with the Municipal Emergency Commission to offer them our fund collection service.

Starting today we will use our platforms to collect donations and redirect all funds to the local Emergency Commission.



We are residents, business owners, community leaders, and engaged global citizens. Together, we channel funds, resources, and knowledge to strengthen our community and environment today and for future generations. This year through the "Together for Monteverde" capital campaign, we are investing in a permanent home and a source of recurring income to support and grow our impact. Help us invest in the future of Monteverde!

Our Vision

We believe in a Monteverde where: People cultivate livelihoods in a diversified, carbon-negative economy; Youth engage and self-empower; Forest ecosystems thrive in abundance; and Visitors treasure and contribute to our dynamic community.
