Over 28 years ago, children started sending contributions to the Monteverde Conservation League to purchase and rehabilitate tropical rainforest.

The great news is we are still purchasing more land, but we cannot do it without our enthusiastic supporters!

Become part of the noble group that has helped save so much of Costa Rica’s biodiversity by creating the Children’s Eternal Rainforest (BEN).

Endowment Fund: What´s that? Well, we are committed to investing the Money in this fund and using only the 5 to 10% interest that it generates each year to support the BEN. Thus, I f you donate, for example, $20 then every year from now on, your gift will provide us $1 to $2. In other words, it would be an eternal gift.
Land Purchase and Protection: We use funds in this category as follows: 50% for land purchase, 40% for land protection (salaries, legal cost, vehicles, etc); and 10% for our endowment fund.
Environmental Education: With our full time educator, in schools in rural communities on Caribbean edge of the BEN.
Research: The BEN in one of the world´s ultimate natural laboratories, yet it is virtually unstudied. Donations to his fund will help to change that.
General: For us to use wherever we most need it.


Yes! I want to help conserve and protect the BEN!
