Purpose of the CMT Board of Directors
The Cascade Medical Team Board of Directors exists to support the Cascade Medical Team, raising funds and promoting public awareness of the team’s activities and mission.
The Board organizes an annual fund-raising campaign and event. Other fundraising includes donations from individuals, businesses and other charitable foundations.
Like the medical team it supports, the CMT Board is an all-volunteer organization. All donations it receives are put to work promoting the team’s healthcare mission and community development projects in Guatemala.
Our Mission Statement
The purpose of the Cascade Medical Team Board of Directors is to transform lives, primarily through financial support of the Cascade Medical Team. The CMT Board may also support other projects and partnerships abroad that further this mission.
The CMT changes lives by offering vital medical services to the poor. It is comprised of regional health care providers and community volunteers who work in alliance with Helps International to provide essential medical services to the indigenous Mayans of the Guatemalan highlands. Also in affiliation with Helps International, the CMT initiates and supports community development projects that reduce poverty, transform lives and empower communities in Guatemala.
The CMT Board and CMT change the lives of our volunteers by creating opportunities for personal growth. Also, volunteers gain the passion, knowledge, and experience to be effective social entrepreneurs in their own communities.
