International Community Foundation
provides a unique service to donors interested in giving internationally,
acting as an intermediary for philanthropic giving overseas.
addition, International Community Foundation provides all the traditional advantages associated
with a public charity in the United States including tax benefits,
savings on administrative costs, assurance that wishes will
be followed after an individual’s lifetime, and the
opportunity for individuals and families to be active participants
in supporting charitable causes.
on the needs and interests of individual donors, the foundation
undertakes research about specific programs or geographical
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 individual donors wishing
to make a difference in Mexico, International Community Foundation also offers a reliable
and efficient tax-deductible vehicle without being subject
to the restrictions set forth in the 1996 U.S.-Mexico Tax
Treaty which stipulates that tax-deductible individual giving
in Mexico be limited to one’s Mexican-sourced income.
