About Snow Angels in Ecuador

Snow Angels in Ecuador is the only 501 c 3, tax exempt entity, based in the United States  devoted to working within Ecuador.  As one of many countries almost devoid of an infrastructure to meet its population's social service needs, Ecuador requires whatever assistance we can provide.                                                                                                                                                   

Snow Angels wants to bring our  cause to the attention of generous and caring people in the United States and provide them with an opportunity to contribute and be part of the solution.

Our Mission:

    Provide financial and administrative assistance to responsible charitable human service organizations in and surrounding the city of Cuenca to ensure their sustainability and growth.

Our Vision:

   Make a difference in people's lives by developing an infrastructure that can deliver a higher volume and quality of human services on an ongoing basis.

Your contribution, no matter the size, will help.  It will  make a difference in many peoples' lives...including your own! 

Please  join us today!
