Mission Statement

The Kateri Tekakwitha Fund is a small 501 ( c ) (3 ) non-profit based in Pacifica CA. The Fund’s mission is to empower Guatemalan women to break the cycle of poverty by having a positive impact on their lives, families, and communities through collaboration and educational scholarships and support, so that the next generation can reach its full potential.


The Fund works through a Guatemalan staff based in Chimaltenango, Guatemala. It supports two programs: an Educational Program which includes scholarships for nurse's training, and an intern program to provide work experience for young women and a Women’s Development Program which facilitates projects initiated by women’s groups in Chumanzana, Chichicastenango, Quiche and Santa Clara la Laguna, Sololá, Guatemala. Projects to date have included an organic gardening project, a sewing course, and a microcredit program.
