Following is a list of, and information about, potential grantees (as yet "unapproved").  From our preliminary review, we already have information that leads us to believe that each organization listed below is most likely eligible and, in our opinion, has a mission that is both hugely worthwhile and necessary and complements our own mission.  As a side note, almost every organization on this list has already received one or more grants from us.

However, as of Oct 10 2008,  we have ceased accepting new grantees  (we suspect that this decision is now a permanent one)  Furthermore, as of March 20, 2011, the current roster of grantees being considered (as of 2008) for approval are as follows:

Jovenes Adelante

Casita Linda

Computadoras pro Jovenes

Lions Club

Feed the Hungry

And, each of the above grantees are currently in varying states of the process of approval, more or less in the order listed above..

The following tabulation, unchanged since mid-2009, will remain here as a historical note  (almost all of the below organizations had received at least one grant from us; the few (6) remaining organizations had been solicited by us but we had received no notice of their interest) :

Notes relating to the above tabulation:

a.  Had (but no longer) been awaiting any positive interest on their part.  We had been looking for volunteers to act as intermediaries and to supply initial information as shown at Eligibility and 1st year requirements
b.  while we agree that this organization has a worthwhile mission, it does not quite fit into our primary Goals & Mission of providing help to organizations that alleviate problems relating to education, nutrition, housing, and medical care of local Mexicans, primarily children. However, there remained a chance that we might in the future give them occasional grants.
c.  Although we had interacted repeatedly in the past, this organization refused to meet our requirements for transparency. Of course, this most likely meant that they were not meeting IRS's requirements as well.  We have more to say about transparency, and also about some of these organizations, on the specifics page.
d. this organization is in process of meeting our requirements as to transparency and continuity.  We hope to be able to approve them some time in the future.
x. this requires more and further narrative than does most of the other organizations. Most of these organizations are discussed further on the specifics page.
