Our International Grants
We do our best to assist US donors in having their charitable donations benefit international causes which are close to their hearts. All gifts raised through various campaigns and events for the benefit of our six fundraising programs, are awarded via International Grants to highly effective and proven programs at the Centro Oncologico Pediatrico de Baja California, A. C.
To award and distribute grants, we first will have received and analyzed a specific proposal with appropriate budgets, made suggestion or improvements on the program and carefully reviewed the impact these funds will have. Once awarded, grants are carefully managed, supervised and directed so that each donors’ funds are used as directed by them in the gift. We evaluate progress and results in addition to following up with donors on a quarterly basis on how their funds were spent and on goals achieved. In all cases, we carefully follow all applicable IRS, US Treasury and US Department of State regulations.
Today, the goal of our Foundation is to raise funds for each of our six programs in addition to raising US$20 million in philanthropic support to expand Phase II of our existing facilities. Through these programs, we intend to double the size of our existing facility to 88,581 square feet, purchase new medical and diagnostic equipment, much needed furniture and furnishings while also tripling the number of beds to 26 and tripling the number of children treated. Additionally, we are creating 24-Month reserves for medical treatments and staff. Through our programs you can support the different areas of pediatric cancer-care that touch you most deeply.
The Center for Oncology in Pediatrics Foundation is directed by a Board of Directors that establishes policies for our foundation and determines fundraising priorities that align with the goals and needs of the Centro Oncologico Pediatrico de Baja California, A. C., as well as their leadership. The board is committed to fulfilling its fiduciary responsibility to ensure that our donor’s US tax deductible donations are used solely as they have been designated by them for programs at the Centro Oncologico Pediatrico de Baja California, A. C. For the past 14 years, our hospital has made a significant impact on saving and treating children with cancer throughout Mexico.
