Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

We hope to increase our donations to be able to provide more for the children. We also hope to raise more money so that more children can live in the home and be supported with food, clothing, school transportation and medical care. The home currently has 32 children and we have the capacity for 80.

We hold a Gala each year in February to raise funds. (Entering our 36th year) We have created a Padrino Child Sponsorship program where donors can sponsor a child Monthly or Yearly. We will be hosting an Auction to raise money for the home.

We took over for an ad-hoc group of US, Canadian and Mexican citizens that have been helping the children for 56 years now. We decided to create Acapulco Angels to formalize that mission. We typically raise $10-12,000 per year. Our goal is to increas to $30, 35,000 to cover more costs of operating the home and be able to add more children. This year we also want to do a couple of capital improvement projects.

With our initial donations we have formed the legal entity Acapulco Angels, obtained IRS 501(c)3 status, created websites for donations and created the technology infrastructure to allow us to grow through software donations from Salesforce, Microsoft, Google and others. We have created a Padrino Child Sponsorship program to increase donations and we are organizing a new yearly Auction to raise money. The next steps are to advertise these programs and solicit donors to them.
