Copan Maya Foundation

Funding Projects – Copan Maya Foundation

In December 1999 the Copán Maya Foundation was founded to facilitate the Copán Association with financial and human resources from the USA to realize projects in Copán, Honduras and surrounding areas.  The Copán Association has received important assistance from the Copán Maya Foundation in many areas:  Since 2011, the Copan Maya Foundation has provided 100% of the funding for the Educational Component of “Guaras en Libertad La Belleza Regresa”.  To date over 8000 youths in the Copan Valley have received educational courses on the conservation of the Scarlet Macaw; the national bird of Honduras. Copan Maya Foundation has also funded research studies for the Tumba Oropendola as well as funding for the remodeling of the Casa Sharer; which is used to house archaeological students as well as other researchers who visit Copan and are in need of long term housing.  The Copan Maya Foundation has also supported creation of pamphlets, guidebooks, and funds much of the maintenance of Casa K’inich Children’s Museum as well as providing support for travel and lecture circuits.  To learn more about our US partner, please visit
