The Mariposa Foundation is organized and operated exclusively for nonprofit and charitable purposes and is recognized as a tax-exempt organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
We chose the Mariposa, or butterfly, as our symbol which many cultures associate with hope and transformation. More importantly, we believe the Mariposa represents the process of rebirth associated with a fresh start for a personal renaissance to stretch into your potential through meaningful education and training to achieve long-term goals and dreams.
Our enduring goal is to empower deserving adults through small education and training grants, to give them a helping hand or second chance to jump-start their lives to let their dreams take flight and experience a transformation through the power of learning, and put them on a viable pathway to achieving their long-term goals.
