Mona Foundation Believes
- in the innate capability of everyone to lead themselves and their communities

- in building long-term partnerships
- and in giving 100% of all contributions that are designated directly to the project(s) you choose to support
Founded in 1999 by a small group of people committed to unconditional service to humanity, the Mona Foundation is a Seattle based nonprofit development agency that supports communities in becoming agents of change in their own social and economic development. We do this by establishing long-term partnerships with locally based educational initiatives in the USA and around the world. Our main objectives are to support providing quality education to all children, with a focus on raising the status of girls and women.
The fundamental belief of the Mona Foundation is that everyone, irrespective of race, religion, social classes, or economic systems deserves an education. Furthermore we believe that education is one of the main means of alleviating poverty and raising the status of women.
The Foundation seeks out development initiatives that have started at the grassroots; have a track record of success, and are managed locally. Mona then partners with these projects to help provide financial assistance and other types of support as requested to build capacity at the local level and help people help and lead themselves.
The foundation has supported over 25 projects in more than 15 different countries since 1999. In 2012 we will be reaching more than 40,000 children, women, and their families around the world.
