About Us

 

Kaqchikel Woman WeavingThe Guatemalan Society of Minnesota (GSM) is a focal point for the Guatemalan community in Minnesota. It preserves and promotes Guatemalan culture through a cultural exhibit and bazaar during the annual Festival of Nations in St. Paul. It also provides a forum for the community to meet and socialize, and acts as a clearinghouse for community resources such as, education, legal, chemical abuse or church referrals.

Through the Annual Benefit Dance, the Guatemalan Society of Minnesota raises funds to equip a hospital or a library in San Lucas Tolimán, Guatemala, and to contribute to Twin Cities Hispanic/Latino community development, and organizations that are social justice focused. It also coordinates a variety of cultural events and activities in cooperation with other cultural and social organizations. GSM volunteers make presentations in churches, schools, colleges and universities.

GSM is a non-profit organization managed by a volunteer board of directors based in the St. Paul/Minneapolis area, Minnesota, USA. We are a certified non-profit with 501(c)(3) status.

We welcome financial contributions and volunteers to help in various capacities. For more information about making a financial contribution or volunteering, call Emiliano at 651-645-5840 or email Emiliano and Gale. Contributions are tax-deductible. Thank you!
