WONDERING HOW WE SPEND $10,000?
63% OF OUR BUDGET GOES DIRECTLY TO THE PEOPLE OF ARCATAO. THIS INCLUDES:
scholarships for two students to attend the University of Central America in San Salvador. With your financial support, our goal is to increase this amount to support a third scholarship student.
support for projects at the Historical Memory Museum
reforestation efforts, including 300 new trees planted this year around Arcatao
grants to a local community radio station, Radio Sumpul
organizing costs — i.e. photocopies, travel to regional meetings, food and drink for meetings, money to keep the lights on.
16% OF OUR BUDGET GOES TO THE
CHALATE ARTS PROJECT
We buy embroidery from the Embroidery Cooperativa in Arcatao and jewelry, wooden crafts and other items from the Centro de Intercambio y Solidaridad (CIS) in San Salvador. All these pieces are fair trade and we sell them at holidays fairs in Madison. For the women in the embroidery coop in Arcatao, this project is their major source of cash.
14% OF OUR BUDGET GOEST TO MASCP’s CONTRIBUTION TO STAFF SALARIES
Two full-time staff members in San Salvador
one part-time coordinator in the United States
We are part of a network of 16 other US-El Salvador Sister Cities who all contribute to paying for these important positions.
7% OF OUR BUDGET GOES TO
MASCP is powered by volunteers, but there are some things we need to pay for. This includes: a post office box, tax preparation, and website and email management.

YOU VERY MUCH FOR MADISON’S FUNDS.
