Donate to ARI

When you make a donation to ARI, you help in two important ways: Your contributions to specific ARI programs help us maintain and grow that unique offering; your contributions to the general fund help to keep our organization strong and grow our facilities in Maras. Right now, general fund contributions are helping us build a complete campus with dorms, meeting rooms, a central dining room, and educational spaces, all of which are designed to accommodate our expanding educational and cultural conservation programs.

When you donate to ARI you not only become a member of the ARI Gift Club, you become a member of the international community that comprises ARI.

To donate at the Gold [$1000] or Platinum [$5000] level, please contact ARI Board President Tim Bachmeyer, at timbachmeyer1@gmail.com or 561-801-5752.

You can become a member of ARI's Ambassador's Circle by making a gift of $10,000 or more. This level of donation enables ARI to take on the larger-scale projects that are such an important part of our vision. As modern influences penetrate and challenge the ways of indigenous cultures – as is happening not only in Maras, but in many regions of the Andes and the Amazon – we at ARI need to be able to function with a broader reach, and with sufficient economic capacity. Your special support allows us not only to preserve the extraordinary indigenous traditions of the Andean people, but also helps us to adapt and grow the value of what the Andean people have to offer. The outcome is higher benefit for everyone – we benefit from their collective wisdom and they begin to prosper as skilled community members in a modernized world.

The Ambassadors’ Circle meets once annually via Skype to participate in ARI's Annual Update with Chairman José Luis Herrera. Life gifts totaling $10,000 also qualify for Ambassador Circle membership. Gifts can be made by cash, check, securities, or gifts-in-kind. Bequests and planned gifts qualify as well.

To become an ARI Ambassador, or for information on Planned Giving, contact ARI president Tim Bachmeyer directly at timbachmeyer1@gmail.com or 561-801-5752.

ARI also welcomes planned gifts, such as gifts through bequests and charitable trusts. For additional information on estate gift planning or proper bequest wording for the Andean Research Institute, please contact ARI president Tim Bachmeyer directly at timbachmeyer1@gmail.com or 561-801-5752.

We appreciate your support and welcome you to ARI!
