The "Foundation for Lake Chapala Charities" is recognized by the U.S. Internal Revenue Service as a 501(c)3 charity. It's prime purpose is to attract money for the charities around Lake Chapala, Mexico, and to allow those who give claim U.S. and Canadian tax deductions for their gifts to those charities. The Foundation is also in the process of applying for Mexican government designation as a charity so we can provide similar tax deductions to those who file income taxes in Mexico.

The Foundation does not retain any percentage of funds received that are designated for a specific charity. All money received, net of any bank or PayPal transaction fees, are passed directly to the designated charities as peso deposits to their respective bank accounts.

Any donations received not earmarked to a designated charity will be given to those charities the Foundation Board determines is most in need of assistance.

The Foundation will also accept "endowments" and "memorial support" for any of the charities and will provide free Mexican legal assistance in setting up those endowments and memorials.
