|Established in 1990, International Community Foundation is a public charity working to foster lasting philanthropy to benefit under-served communities in Mexico and Latin America. With over 70% of International Community Foundation's recent grantmaking benefiting charitable causes along the Baja California peninsula, International Community Foundation is committed to assisting US donors with charitable giving needs internationally.
For U.S donors, International Community Foundation provides all the traditional advantages associated with a public charity including tax benefits, savings on administrative costs, assurances that one's wishes will be followed after their lifetime, as well as the opportunity for individuals and families to actively participate in supporting charitable causes.
Depending on the needs and interests of individual donors, International Community Foundation undertakes research on specific programs and geographic areas; obtains detailed information about potential grantees; facilitates site visits; fulfills required due diligence on projects receiving grants; and provides timely progress and financial reports to donors.
For individuals wishing to make a difference in Baja California or anywhere else in Mexico, the International Community Foundation also offers a reliable and efficient tax deductible vehicle without being subject to the restrictions set forth in the 1994 U.S.-Mexico Tax Treaty which stipulates that tax-deductible individual giving in Mexico be limited to one's Mexican-sourced income.
