Voluntary contributions

How to help sustain this website


ALAI’s information services thrive thanks to the content contributed by hundreds of people, media outlets, organizations, research centers and other entities with which we have built up a continent-wide collaborative network.


However, in today's complex environment, we must rely on our readers’ support, to be able to ensure the continuity and quality of our editing and dissemination work.


We therefore invite you to consider making a voluntary contribution to support ALAI’s work.  (For example, a contribution of $ 100 would ensure the updating and maintenance of our website for one day.  US $ 30 would cover one week of our Internet connection costs).  Those who read Spanish – or the institutions where you work – might also consider subscribing to the print magazine América Latina en Movimiento.


We know many of our readers are unable to contribute financially, and therefore we have chosen not to restrict our information services only to paying subscribers (except in the case of the print edition of our magazine, due to the high costs of the postal service).


Below we detail payment options.


We appreciate your solidarity and support for ALAI’s work.


Sally Burch

Executive Director, ALAI
