Wixarika Research Center

EIN: 68-0475089


We strive to promote public awareness of the Wixárika (Huichol) culture of Mexico through an online archive of their art, history, and culture along with a news section dedicated to current events. In addition to the archive, we provide support for community initiatives that advance and preserve Wixárika culture and territory. Our foundation works to defend the sacred lands and natural resources vital to the cultural survival of the Wixárika people, and we help design, implement and finance environmentally sustainable projects for their communities.

Balance sheet

Fiscal Year: May 01 - Apr 30

SOURCE: IRS Form 990 info

The balance sheet gives a snapshot of the financial health of an organization at a particular point in time. An organization's total assets should generally exceed its total liabilities, or it cannot survive long, but the types of assets and liabilities must also be considered. For instance, an organization's current assets (cash, receivables, securities, etc.) should be sufficient to cover its current liabilities (payables, deferred revenue, current year loan, and note payments). Otherwise, the organization may face solvency problems. On the other hand, an organization whose cash and equivalents greatly exceed its current liabilities might not be putting its money to best use.
