The Honduras Project accepts tax-deductable donations in cash, or by check or credit card. All donations, however great or small, are deeply appreciated and are essential to the continuation of the project. The group raises between $12,000 and $15,000 per trip, and most of the money comes in very small amounts from fellow students, neighbors, friends, and alumni of the trip.
