Donate Without Money!

Some of you have been with Bernie for the whole 25 years she has been going to Tepic to serve the Children’s home, their neighbors, and their friends. We created Service Synergy, an education 501(c)3 non-profit, in 2017 to cover potential educational aspects of our activity in Tepic.

We hope you’ll participate in these two painless ways to support Service Synergy: Fred Meyer and Amazon donate a percentage of purchases made by participants who choose Service Synergy as “their” non-profit. The first year’s donation from Fred Meyer will become scholarships for students learning and serving abroad. To “participate” with

We Begin

We are “official!”  Service Synergy’s non-profit paperwork is filed. The footwork began years ago in Tepic, and in Southern Oregon high schools. Now this fledgling website will be filling you in. The IRS has determined that we are tax exempt as of August 3, 2017. We await a few more teammates to step up, including a treasurer and advisors, both local and abroad.

You can view our public documentation on Our Purpose page.
