The University of Guadalajara Foundation in the United States of America (UDG Foundation-USA) is an extension of Fundación Universidad de Guadalajara, A.C., and is made up of a number of prominent academic and social leaders. The Foundation works to attain private support from individuals, foundations and/or corporations in order to fulfill the mission and vision of the University of Guadalajara at Los Angeles.
The donations that the Foundation receives from one of the most important philanthropic regions in the United States go towards the relevant and high-quality academic and cultural activities of the University of Guadalajara in Los Angeles. Behind each donation is an organization or individual who is determined to help Mexicans and other Latinos living in this region improve their quality of life and enhance their cultural identity. This kind of support will have positive effects both on their communities of origin and the ones in which they are now living.
In keeping with its mission, the University of Guadalajara extends its educational services to the Los Angeles and California region. This initiative offers technical, continuing, high school and university-level educational services, as well as cultural and artistic programs to the Mexican and Hispanic communities living in and around Los Angeles. This initiative also creates new pathways to personal growth and strengthens the sense of identity and belonging of this population and thus facilitates their integration into the broader society. It is a bridge of academic and cultural collaboration between Guadalajara, Jalisco and Los Angeles, California.
