In Guatemala, there aren’t websites that use publicly available information and organize it so people can do research and make informed decisions. Before Pionero Philanthropy was created, there was no nonprofit evaluator or consultancy that focused on Guatemalan nonprofits, making it near impossible for people to find impartial guidance regarding launching philanthropy programs in the region, or to find verified information about what existed in Guatemala in the sector.

Pionero Philanthropy was created to fill this gap and in response to the clear demand for consulting services and comprehensive data on the nonprofit environment in Guatemala. Our goal is that by providing information to researchers, donors, individuals, volunteers, and nonprofits there will be exciting long term collaborations that will result in significant development outcomes for Guatemala.
