Monteverde

Monteverde has felt a deep economic impact since the beginning of the pandemic: with the arrival of COVID-19 to Costa Rica and the lockdown on our borders preventing tourists from traveling into the country, a large percentage of our community has been living with little to no income, as many businesses let employees go in the midst of this uncertainty. We have been using our platforms to collect donations and redirect all funds to the local Liaison Commission.

COVID-19 Response

Monteverde has felt a deep economic impact since the beginning of the pandemic: with the arrival of COVID-19 to Costa Rica and the lockdown on our borders preventing tourists from traveling into the country, a large percentage of our community has been living with little to no income, as many businesses let employees go in the midst of this uncertainty. Since March, we have been using our platforms to collect donations and redirect all funds to the local Liaison Commission (a team of dedicated volunteers who gather data, run the Food Bank and lead socially oriented projects). With the money raised, we buy fresh, locally grown product to add to the food packs being distributed weekly to the families in need.



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.
