You, Too, Can Help PV Students With Their Education!

March 30, 2016

Under the slogan 'Changing Lives through Education' Becas Vallarta has sponsored thousands of young Vallartenses through junior high, high school, university, and even medical school, for over 50 years.

Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - Don't miss Becas Vallarta's 2015-2016 season finale fundraiser - Breakfast at Coco's Kitchen on April 13th at 10:00 am. Coco, always a magnificent hostess, is planning a great menu, and there will be an array of great prizes for the raffle and exciting silent auction items. The price is a very reasonable $200 pesos per person.

Becas Vallarta, A.C. provides scholarships for over 300 students in middle school, high school and university. Most of these students would not be able to attend school if it were not for the scholarship they receive. While Mexico's schools are open to all students, students cannot attend without the proper supplies and uniforms, both for class and physical education.

The volunteers at Becas Vallarta are dedicated to raising money to provide scholarships for Vallarta's young people, 8th grade through university. To qualify for a scholarship students must come from a Puerto Vallarta family of limited economic resources, maintain a grade point average of 8.5 and be a good citizen in school and at home. Once they earn a scholarship we continue it as long as they meet criteria.

Becas Breakfasts also allow seasoned members of the community to mingle with one another, and the opportunity to connect with new attendees looking to contribute to such an important cause.

For further information, please contact Suzanne Erikson at (322) 221-5599, Terry Prill at 221-5465, or Mariel Fregoso at 221-0789.

Note: Coco's Kitchen is located at Pulpito #122 on the South side of Puerto Vallarta.


Becas Vallarta A.C. is a nonprofit, tax deductible Mexican foundation charged with fund raising and administering the scholarship program for students in Puerto Vallarta, Jalisco, Mexico. The America-Mexico Foundation, Inc., founded in 1961, is a nonprofit USA tax deductible foundation—under section 501 (C) (3) of the IRS code—that donates all funds raised to finance these scholarships.
