The Corner Institute: Supporters


About us












From its inception, the Corner Institute's goal has been to promote the educational and economic development of Malinalco's campesino community, making a priority of providing its services to those in greatest need. Thanks to support ranging from local neighborhood associations to area businesses and church groups to friends in Mexico, Central America, the U.S., and Great Britain and, more recently, foundation support, we have been able to continue offering the community of Malinalco educational support and services for migrants children and families without charge since 1998.

If you would like to join us in creating a better future for this rural Mexican region, you can be assured that your donation will work together with the good will of the community and the creative energy of Malinalco's young people to create multiplier effects.
