Please join us in making a profound, positive difference in the lives of children and adults in and around La Colonia de Guayabo now and into the future. Please know that all gifts are received with great gratitude. Your gift will significantly benefit the lives of children and adults into the future.


Gifts to the Curt Thomas Sheck Community Library made through the Curt Thomas Sheck Foundation, a 501 (c) (3) public charity, are tax deductible. Every donation makes a difference in this project. 


In addition to monetary gifts, you can support us when you make purchases from Amazon through the the AmazonSmile program. For information about lending a hand through volunteering, check out the options below. 


The library building exists, books are on the shelves and activities and services are underway. However, the need for support continues: bills for Internet, telephone, water and electricity roll around monthly, replacement of the original, reconstituted computers that no longer function, funds for books and supplies for activities and programs. Check our wish list and long-term goals for other specific needs.


Memorial gifts

If you make a memorial gift to the Curt Thomas Sheck Foundation, we will send a letter acknowledging your gift to the family or individual according to your instructions when you send in the gift. We believe it is a thoughtful way to remember someone and a meaningful rememberance for the family.
