Who are we?
Proviváh is a private trust established by Mexican businessmen in order to support Mexican families with lower incomes living in overcrowded or unsafe places such as near cliffs or riverbanks.
The trust was created in December 1999. Since then its goal is to raise funds from companies and society to build and provide decent and safe houses to Mexican families living in asset poverty. All this is done non for profit nor politic.
Fideicomiso Proviváh is a donatee authorized by the Tax Administration System; therefore, all donations received, financial or in kind, are tax deductible.
Throughout its history, the Fideicomiso Proviváh has maintained the principle of allocating 100% of raised funds by donations to house-building.
