Masons on a Mission works with Emily Webb of the Calacyria Foundation, an American non profit, to fund and build vented cookstoves in villages around Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. We also work with Clara Colop of Ixtel, an indiginous a non profit organization working to provide health care for women in the western highlands of
Every year in late Jan or early Feb, roughly 25-30 volunteers arrive in San Marcos la laguna to build stoves for a week.
After returning home, as money is raised, it is wired down to Emily & Clara who buy and arrange delivery for the materials. They also provide the local masons, who we know and have worked with for years, that will build those stoves. The vast majority of stoves that MOM has provided, are built by our Maya masons.
There are a number of ways in which you can help. What we need the most is money. The more money donated, the more stoves that get built. Each stove costs us $150 for the cost of materials and the masons pay, so all of that money goes into their local economy.
We all share a vision of hundreds of thousands of Maya breathing clean air within their homes. Please consider making a tax deductible donation to Masons on a Mission. Your contribution will help a rural Guatemalan family live a healthier life. Although any size donation is appreciated, for a donation to MOM of $150 you will be supporting the cost of materials for one family’s new stove.

Patrick Kerr Memorial Skatepark
Local skateboarders and parents worked with the Abington Township Parks & Recreation Department to build a public skatepark at Roslyn Park. FPSF donated $5K in 2001 from donations raised during the 2000 & 2001 X Games in Philadelphia. The project was renamed Patrick Kerr Memorial Skatepark in 2003 after the tragic death of the leading advocate for the project from the local skateboarding community. The final design is a breathtaking combination of street and transition elements created with a generous DIY spirit and unquestionable professional skill. The park opened in July of 2009 and continues to attract locals and visitors alike.
FPSF’s final $3K donation helped to close the material needs for the project in combination with a 100% match provided by local community members.
