2019 Quarter 2 Financial Impact

We are proud to announce that we have been awarded an 885,446 pesos grant from the Los Cabos Children’s Foundation (LCCF) for the August 2019-2020 year. This is great news for the Women and Children of the Sarahuaro Foundation. Fifty percent will be received by September, fifty percent in January.

A 3-year Business Plan has been developed to support our efforts in projecting Sarahuaro as a sound organization, to provide guidance to the Board governance, and for submission to meet grant requirements. It is a work in progress and your input is encouraged – all feedback welcome!

Our 2018 Audited Financial Report and 2019 Q1 Financials are now available for your perusal.

Sarahuaro’s Community Garden (Circle of Champions Project) has taken on a life of its own and we are getting volunteers, donations and grants to support and expand it. We received a 100,000 pesos grant from Fundación Dolphin Discovery, a non-profit organization in Mexico, and a small part of the LCCF funds are designated to helping our garden thrive. As a result, we have a garden manager and other expenses that, going forward, will be allocated directly to Garden Operating Expense. The harvest benefits the Children’s Kitchens and a dozen local families who are heavily engaged in its maintenance.
