The War Legacies Project is able to conduct our programs primarily due to the generous support of individual donors. However, we would not be able to operate without the on-going support of the Chino Cienega Foundation. CCF has been a generous donor since our beginning and its board members are trusted advisors. Their annual grant helps cover much, though not all, of WLP's operating expenses. As a result the majority of the funds donated by individuals go directly to program expenses.

You can send checks to: War Legacies Project 144 Lower Bartonsville Rd. Chester, VT 05143


Please note on the memo line if you have specific requests for the donation.

If you would like to make a donation of stocks please email shammond@warlegacies.org for details.

General Support

We keep operating costs low by partnering with local Vietnamese and Lao organizations, but still have general operating costs that must be met. General support donations also enable us to use the funds where they are needed most.

The survey is producing a systematic recording of the extent of Agent Orange contamination in Laos and its human health impacts by identifying and helping those in need. We are also conducting interviews with Lao citizens who will share memories of pre-war, wartime and post-war Laos. Our goal is to archive these stories, official records and more.

The Fund supports children with disabilities and their families. by providing medical care, income generation, housing repairs, scholarships and/or adaptive equipment.
