Be A Changemaker

Be a changemaker

Each year, your donations bring 210 high school juniors and seniors from more than 90 nations together to live and learn at our Montezuma, New Mexico campus. Alongside peers from vastly different countries, economic backgrounds, and worldviews, they study for the challenging International Baccalaureate diploma, gain a broad global perspective, and learn to navigate conflicts from the trivial to the profound.

The lessons and mission of UWC-USA endure far beyond graduation. Today, our alumni are helping communities around the world build sustainable, peaceful futures.

We are almost completely dependent on donor support for scholarships, teacher training, facilities, Wilderness programs, and more. Your gift of any size will have a tremendous impact on our students and their potential to affect positive change in the world. Thank you.

You can support the students who will become the next generation of global leaders and changemakers by supporting scholarships and programs at UWC-USA.

Give Forward

UWC-USA is a training ground for change-makers. Students enter as idealists and graduate well-equipped to succeed and make lasting, positive change. Those who’ve experienced it will tell you it transformed them. Those who support it philanthropically will tell you about the satisfaction of knowing they helped develop the kind of thoughtful, compassionate leaders the world truly needs.

The Joshi Challenge

Joshi Family

Aditya Joshi ‘91 has fond memories of the transformative experiences and amazing friendships from his time in Montezuma 30 years ago. He hopes that future generations of students will be able to enjoy a similar experience and is challenging the UWC-USA alumni community with a $30,000 challenge match in the closing days of the Annual Fund. Here’s how your donation could grow: A gift of $500, for example, will be matched by Aditya (for a total of $1000) and then be matched again (for a total of $2000) by the Davis Family Challenge Grant when we hit our $2 million goal. Your gifts will help support scholarships and programs like Wilderness, Southwest Studies, and Project Week.
