El Viento relies on the generous support of our community to provide for the success of our kids. We are a service organization with non-profit status so if you would like to make a financial or in-kind contribution, we would be delighted to issue the appropriate tax receipt to you. Please call Colleen Mensel at (714) 892-7711, ext. 55205 or contact us for more information. Please see this list of our current supporters.
The ten-year period from fourth grade through two years of college costs about $10,000 per student to complete. A $10,000 contribution covers the following activities for each child for those years:
Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Program
- After School Tutoring
Academic counseling and tutoring provided by a certified teacher
- Year-Round Recreational Programs
Monthly enrichment field trips to places like the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center
- Summer Camp
Summer program consisting of swimming, sailing, ocean-related activities and camping trips
- College Students
Counseling and advice on managing the transition into college life and beyond
A contribution of at least $1,000/yr for 10 years provides you with recognition as a member of our "Captain's Club."
- One student for one year: $1,000
- One student for the entire ten-year program: $10,000
- One class for one year: $25,000
- One class for the whole program: $250,000
Our newest way to give is to join our Captain's Club. This is a way for our contributors to make a multi-year commitment that will provide support for El Viento students over the entire 10-year duration of our program. Please contact our office for more details or print out this form and mail it in.
Methods of Giving
Gift plans create opportunities for both El Viento and our contributors. Determining what gift is right for you is just as important as making the gift. There are many options from which you can choose. The correct plan for you balances what you wish to accomplish for yourself, your family, and your charitable interests in your overall estate and financial plans.
Please consult with your financial advisor to learn about giving strategies that allow you to make a meaningful charitable gift while possibly enhancing your, and your family's, future financial well being. If you don't have an advisor, feel free to select one from our Preferred Advisor Listing.
One of our goals is to continue seeking in-kind contributions for a variety of needs within our program, which include:
- Printed T-shirts for students and staff
- Low or no-cost activities for our students during the school year and our summer program
- General office supplies
- Auction items for our Fall Golf Classic
Thank you for your help!
Our community is a better place because of your generosity and caring! Please call Colleen Mensel at (714) 892-7711, ext. 55205 or contact us for details on how to donate in-kind items.
