In March 2013, Firefighters Crossing Borders and Punta Mita Foundation linked efforts to build stronger communities in Bahia de Banderas and Puerto Vallarta areas of Mexico. A special Bahia Vallarta Fire EMS Fund was created to provide those interested in supporting our efforts to develop firefighting, rescue and emergency medical services (EMS) for the people of the area.
Community foundations (CFs) are a global phenomenon with 1400 existing around the world of which over 700 are in the United States. In Mexico there are only about 24 Community Foundations. Fundación Punta de Mita is the only CF in the state of Nayarit.
Those making donations into this fund will receive a charitable deduction receipt for their country in the year that gifts are made. Receipt can be issued in the USA, Mexico and Canada and all donations are used to support the firefighters of the area. The goal is to improve life saving emergency services for the people in these communities.
