As we increase our efforts to listen to our members and improve communication, Esperanto-USA has heard so many wonderful ideas for improvements and new projects as well as wonderful questions about what level of support we can and cannot offer to various causes.

The treasurer’s report lists many funds, as does the Donations section of our online store. It can be hard to wade through and figure out which funds do what and how members can make use of them. To make sure Esperanto-USA and your donations are working for you, we at Esperanto-USA have done the research for you about 12 of the funds which can help you the most.
