Our local community foundation, Fundación Punta de Mita, celebrated its 10th Anniversary recently by hosting a breakfast with donors, nonprofits, and partners from the local community and broader Banderas Bay region.

Fundación Punta de Mita began with the goal of promoting social change in the region as a community foundation. While at times the journey has been challenging, they have continued their work with the perseverance and vision of many people contribution, and as a result have been able to accomplish so much for our region. Congratulations on your first ten years!

Lisa Schalla, executive director of FPM, stated: “We have always believed that the community foundation model is the best for promoting development in our region. Thanks to our many alliances, we’ve been able to continue working… none of us could have done this alone.”

“An organization’s success is the result of the combined effort of every individual.”

They presented this video highlighting the accomplishments of their first decade:
