Where will your money go? One-hundred percent of your money will be used towards the designated purpose of the donation because all the work for Mujeres Unidas is done on a volunteer/community service basis. The women are striving to be self-sufficient in three years (by 2013) and hope to raise funds within these three years to meet all of their objectives so that they can fulfill this goal of self-sustainability.
We are currently working with tax experts to see if tax exemption for donations made to Mujeres Unidas might be a possibility.
