Jaltepec has been granted another very special Accreditation by the Mexican Center for Philanthropy, a private, non-profit institution, the most important Mexican organization in terms of boosting Corporate Social Responsibility and Philanthropic Culture.


The Jaltepec certification is known as AIT - Accreditation in Institutionality and Transparency that reflects the level of institutional development of the organization. This Certification is important as it allows any person, company or institution to know with certainty the features of a private, non-profit organization and their services to third parties.

Once this certification has been granted, Jaltepec will be able to start using the certification logo in all their public documents, such as brochures, the web site, and the annual activity reports.
