Welcome to our Paricutin Civic and Education Foundation, Inc web site.  

As per our
mission Statement, "Working Together Today to Serve Our Community and
Educate Our Leaders of Tomorrow." 

Sounds like a
simple and attainable statement, but is it?  



    Consider this, when donating to the local charitable chapters of the Down Syndrome Association,  San Antonio Food  Bank,  Alzheimer's Association, The Rib Foundation, American Cancer Society, the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, American Diabetes Association, Cancer Research, Oblate Madonna Residence, Mujeres Unidas, Inc., the Hispanic Heritage Foundation, Los Sembradores de San Antonio, the homeless and others, even helping a high school senior (scholarship recipient) participate in her dream prom by  providing her  dress,  shoes,  make-over,  transportation,  dinner (out  of our own  pockets),  helping families pay funeral expenses, medical bills and  Care Link Ins. premiums, we fulfill serving our community.  But, it all comes with conditions set by the Federal, State, County and Municipal Governments Laws and Ordinances. We meet those restrictions with legal and professional accounting safeguards.  Our focus, to the community, is to maintain or improve our commitment to the needy. 

    Since we became a 501(c)3 organization (1999), we have been able to assist individuals and/or  organizations in  need  and  provide  scholarships to  deserving Hispanic students,  either in a partnership with a national organization or individually (granting scholarships terminated with the  introduction of  our endowment program).  In 2008, we began  an endowed scholarship fund with The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). It maximized the potential of providing and continuing more opportunities to incoming  Hispanic San  Antonio  freshmen. This decision  guaranteed  the continuance of financial aid even if we cease to exist.  We are proud, grateful and eager to continue this relationship with UTSA. 

    I applaud and convey my sincere appreciation to the membership for adhering to their sense of duty and compassion  and  to our many (some long-standing) supporters for "Helping us Help Others."

    To continue our  philanthropic purpose  we  need  your support.  When you navigate through  the  available  tabs you  are  exposed  to  our History,  Goals and Event(s) and invite you to support or join our organization.

"Whatever you do for the least of my brethren, you do for me."
