Give a Child the Wings to Fly

Don’t miss this great opportunity to improve the life of children in La Manzanilla. Apply to be a Wing’s Scholarship Sponsor today!

With the help of special people like you, La Catalina Foundation started the Wing’s Scholarship program! The Wings scholarship program searches out middle school children that excel in academics but don’t have the financial ability to continue onto high school. Your Wing’s scholarship donation provides transportation, books, uniforms, and tuition expenses. The lucky student also receives private one on one tutoring throughout the year in the academic area of their need.

As a sponsor, you will make a lifelong friend and significantly change the life of a child in La Manzanilla. You will also receive frequent updates, photos, report cards and a video of the scholarship student.

Read what last year’s winner Gaby Rodriguez and her sponsor family had to say about the program.

Quote from 2007 Scholarship Winner:

“The Scholarship has changed my life and given me an opportunity I never had.”

Quote from 2007 Scholarship Sponsors:

“Several weeks ago we received a thank you card from Gaby and appreciated her kind words. Hopefully she has made the adjustment to high school. She is very courageous to choose to continue her education. Her pictures show us that she is a very beautiful person. Her video and words tell us that she is a very determined. I would very much like to meet her.”

Help us give a brighter future to the children of La Manzanilla. You will be giving children the “wings” to fly!
