Generous Donors


We are honored—and humbled—that visits to schools and villages supported by Grand Circle Foundation so often inspire our travelers to want to give back.  Approximately 10,000 people donate to Grand Circle Foundation annually, with donations ranging from $5 to a bequest of over $200,000.

100% of all donations are returned to our partner sites, and are 100% tax deductible.

Below is a list some of our most generous donors and how they are helping us fulfill our vision to make the world a better place.
