The foundation has supported numerous projects in Northern Baja, including rehab centers both for men and for women in San Felipe, the local hospital and numerous educational projects. The foundation has recently made major commitments to two area institutions, Casa de Paco, and Collegio de Jesus.
A hospice organization based in Mexicali that cares for terminally ill patients and their families. They currently are working with over 60 patients whose diseases aren’t curable, and who don’t have the ability to care for themselves. The staff and volunteers are remarkable in their commitment to this very difficult work. The community support from organizations like the Universal Golf Foundation is crucial to their mission.
The funding of education is critical to the long term health of both San Felipe and of Mexico. There are two reasons for this. First, without the availability of good schools, talented managers will not bring their families to the area. Second, without a good education, Mexico will not be able to develop the quality of citizens to successfully manage a growing country.
Currently provides a quality education through high school. El Dorado Ranch has donated land for the new school, the success of this project is entirely dependent on a strong community support. The needs include volunteers for fund raising, construction and management of the school. Financial support is also essential to the success of this project. Money is needed both for construction, and for scholarships for deserving students to attend. Currently about 20% of the students attending the school are there on scholarships provided by the Universal Golf Foundation.
