Established in 1990, ICF is a public charity working to foster lasting philanthropy to benefit under-served communities throughout the Americas and Asia. With over 70% of ICF’s recent grantmaking benefiting charitable causes along the Baja California peninsula, ICF is committed to assisting US. donors with charitable giving needs from Tijuana to Los Cabos.
For U.S donors, ICF 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, ICF 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, ICF 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.
