Copan Maya Foundation
Preserving Ancient Sites, Improving Modern Lives

The Copan Maya Foundation works to ensure the long-term preservation of the ancient Maya site of Copan and other Maya sites in Mesoamerica since its establishment in 2000.

The Copan Maya Foundation partners with the Copan Association; its Honduran based sister organization and Honduran NGO and local citizens in Copan, Honduras to ensure sustainability in intelligently designed educational, cultural and ecological projects. Copan Maya Foundation offers a tax-deductible way to support Copan. Learn more about the ancient Maya and ensure that this archaeological site will remain for the enjoyment of future generations.


To preserve Copan and ensure its future, we must understand its past. Accordingly, the Copan Maya Foundation partners with the Copan Association (, a Honduran non-profit organization, whose history, resources and local presence since 1990 are essential to project administration and implementation.

Together we support scholarly work and fund educational, cultural and environmental projects that help understand the ancient past of this important region. Projects are determined by considering community needs, site requirements, and the Copan Management Plan as drafted by independent consultants for the government of Honduras.
