invest in mundo verde
Combining Education for Sustainability, bilingual education and project-based learning (EL Education), Mundo Verde’s program fosters high levels of academic achievement among a diverse group of students by preparing them to be successful and compassionate global stewards of their communities.
A parent-founded public charter school in the District of Columbia, Mundo Verde relies on a combination of public funding designated per enrolled student, competitive public funding, and the support of families, staff, community members, corporations, and foundations to accomplish our unique mission. Our vibrant community of supporters provides funds critical for the implementation of Mundo Verde’s biliteracy curricula and LEED-certified, one-of-a-kind sustainability demonstration campus.
Mundo Verde is a District of Columbia nonprofit corporation and is exempt from federal income tax under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code. Your gifts are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law.
every donation counts
Your contribution, at any level, has a direct influence on our students’ experiences. Thanks to the generosity of our supporters, families, and community members we are able to:
- Attract and retain talented and dedicated staff AND help them grow with innovative professional development;
- Offer our students immersive, hands-on field studies, experiential learning opportunities such as working with real-life experts, and activities that stand out from traditional academic offerings like cooking and gardening classes and school-wide nature adventure excursions on a regular basis; and
- Continue enhancing and expanding our campus with mission-aligned improvement projects that include: new library furniture, books, and media to support the literacy program; a school kitchen to support health, wellness, science, and sustainability goals; auditorium AV equipment to support performing arts programs and events; and outdoor spaces to support active play and learning.
