A phenomenal window of opportunity
Currently we are experiencing a phenomenal window of opportunity in Costa Rica and within the government for building a national model of peace for the world. We invite every peacemaker to help us grab this opportunity.

We have consistently received funds for the Academy through unexpected major donations to the Rasur Foundation, and for this we are very grateful. Now, however, we must build long-term financial sustainability into our operations. Building a residential hall is one answer to this challenge as it will generate funds for the public school BePeace program through “for-pay” national and international immersion trainings.

There are a variety of volunteer opportunities available as the Academy for Peace expands. In Costa Rica, call 2282-4041 or for international inquiries, contact

How your donations will be used
We need to raise $500,000 to build the residential hall and $500,000 for the national upscaling of the train-the-facilitators program. You can direct your contributions toward the area of your choice.
