At BCA we take great care in seeing that your financial contributions are used wisely. We minimize operating costs so that more can be used for programs and projects. We respect your privacy as a donor and do not share contact information without your permission. We use a secure server for processing credit card transactions and shred written documents immediately.

Your financial donations are deeply appreciated! Please contact us if you have any concerns or questions, or if you fail to receive a letter acknowledging your gift in a timely matter.

The Border Community Alliance depends on your donations to fulfill its mission! Undesignated contributions are particularly helpful, since these dollars support essential operating expenses. You will automatically be considered a member of BCA if your undesignated donation meets or exceeds the minimum amount ($25 for students; $50 for individuals; $75 for families).

Designated donations are also very much welcome and need to support specific projects such as the Internship Program, the Border Youth Tennis Exchange (BYTE) or FESAC projects in Mexico. You can designate your gift when you donate online or when you send a check. Check out other sections of our website for information about the Internship Program and BYTE. Donating to FESAC projects in Mexico via our “Pass Thru Funding for Mexican Projects” is a way you can make a direct difference. You can donate to any specific program described  here or to FESAC to support all programming.

All donations (but not Cross Border Fees) are considered tax-deductible according to the IRS guidelines.

Give generously and with confidence that your gift will be well-used.

After you have taken the Introductory Cross Border Tour, join us for one of our other tour options. For a list of these, as well as the schedule and registration process, visit our “Cross Border Tours” page.

FESAC Pass Thru Programs

The Border Community Alliance grew out of relationships with people who wanted to promote bi-national relationships between non-profit organizations. From the beginning BCA had a close relationship with FESAC, a Mexican NGO similar to a community foundation. This unique arrangement allows us to provide pass thru donations to FESAC and to specific organizations that FESAC supports.
