ABOUT US

When there are thousands of Non-Profit Institutions requesting and needing your support, why select the Educational Foundation of the Americas. As many of us have learned, it is at least as difficult to make an effective impact with one’s financial resources as it was to earn them.

Large impact.

In addition to the university level, they support pre-university levels of education.

You can see or visit the result of your generosity.

They are currently focused on Mexico, since that is the source of much of our uncontrolled immigration. We can try to solve the problems after their arrival or improve their education before. The first is much cheaper and results in a healthier neighbor.

They do not give money for operational reasons. They believe the operational expenses, with rare exceptions, are the responsibility of the management of educational institution, not donors. They give money for capital investment and research only.

Assisted in developing the campuses for the Universidad de Las Americas in Mexico City and Puebla The Foundation consists of a highly skilled group of high achievers that are accustomed to leave their mark on Society.

Why Does the Foundation Seek to Support the Hispanic Community in the US and Mexico Through Model Institutions?

Model institutions provide a showcase for the success of new methodologies functioning within the target culture, providing a blueprint that can be copied.

They also act as a catalyst within the local educational community, by training people and demonstrating the effectiveness of new ideas.

If Current Trends Continue, the Hispanic Community Will Represent a Disaster Both to Itself and to America as a Whole

It will grow from 11.2% to 24.5% of the US population by 2050

Latino children are the second largest group of children in the nation.

Half of the Latino population is limited economically due to deficient English

Latino students drop out of high school at about twice the national average.

Teenage Pregnancies are three times the average, representing 37.6% of the total teen birth rate.

Hispanics are over represented in Prisons and under represented in Colleges.

There is a massive shortage of bilingual, bicultural executives able to take advantage of the new opportunities created by the rapidly expanding foreign investment in Latin America.

American Companies need a source of talent that is "home grown", as well as from Latin American Countries.
