Amigos de la Cruz is currently assisting Tercer Edad Bucerías AC, a nonprofit dedicated to enhance dignity, care and a respectful quality of life for low income seniors in Valle (less than 5 USD per day). Their goal is to build a senior residence for which they have already received a 2,500 m2/26,909 ft2 land concession from Ejido Valle.

To date $350,000 USD has been raised in-kind and pro-bono donations from notaries, lawyers, land permits, drawings by the School of Architects in Puerto Vallarta and land. Our goal is to raise an additional $491,000 USD to build the senior residence facility. The target completion date is September 2022.

Presently, AITE and Banderas Bay Charities, Inc are working with Tercera Edad Bucerias (Casa de La Paz home for seniors), Yvonneka Foundation and The Sula Society on branding, website, fundraising, establishing a Board, accounting, legal and more.

We also have as a goal to support grant writing for nonprofits in Banderas Bay to support their cause. The main qualifications to be Mexican tax deductible are: two years of constitution (bylaws), minimum two years of financial statements/tax returns and a project outline. Those are the minimum requirements to be able to go forward to write grants.
