Gracious donations were one of the mechanisms that the Spanish Crown used to obtain extraordinary financial resources during times of fiscal hardship or international war. In this research we quantify and analyze the donations granted by various regions taking as sources the fidelista publications Minerva Peruana and Gaceta del Gobierno de Lima. Likewise, we examine the political position adopted by the donors in this war situation, and finally, based on some cases, we analyze the remuneration obtained from the Spanish Crown.
