Checks written locally should be placed in an envelope, marked “FOUNDATION – BOX 4A” and dropped off at the front desk at HandyMail in San Antonio or given to one of the directors. Handy Mail is located one block east of Super Lake on the carreterra.
Checks drawn on recognized US or Canadian Banks are accepted. Checks drawn on a Credit Union account are not accepted in Mexico.
Please note: It is recommended that a wire transfer be used to make any donation in excess of $500 US dollars.
