2. Gifting
The Friends of CICRIN seek to raise $8,000 per month for CICRIN's operating expenses. 
Please see the Updates page for more information.
These funds will provide:
  • Financial support of CICRIN throughout the current political crisis in Nicaragua
  • Operating capital that will replace lost sources of revenue brought on by the political crisis 

Friends of CICRIN is a nonprofit organization created by Americans who love CICRIN. You can make your gift through Friends of CICRIN.  Because Friends of CICRIN is a 501(c)3 non-profit, your gift may be tax-deductible. 

There are two simple ways you can donate. 

1.    Send a check payable to Friends of CICRIN at 2916 Plantation Lane, Waynesboro, VA  22980-1517.  All gifts will be promptly acknowledged.

Note that contributions from the USA must be wire transferred to Nicaragua. Transfers are batched to save wire transfer fees so your contribution may not transfer immediately. You may request an immediate transfer, however, the cost of that transfer, about $35, will be deducted from your contribution.
