2022 End of Year Report

End of Year Reports
1. 2020 End of Year Report
2. 2021 End of Year Report
3. 2022 End of Year Report

We received our IRS classification as a 501(c)3 public charity at the beginning of the year. This classification will change many of our operations and the way we manage the nonprofit. We spent the first half of the year planning and implementing these changes. We can apply for national grants as a 501(c)3 public charity. We received grants from Microsoft and Google in the way of in-kind digital grants. These two grants allowed access to software and programs that help us manage the nonprofit. Also, digital ads credit to promote our mission on search engines.

Another grant was the Airbnb Social Impact partnership, which allows us to offer community-based Experiences and pay no Airbnb fees. PayPal also included us in their PayPal nonprofit grant, which covers the transaction fees.

We began our season in April, including a Mexico City national competition. Seven athletes supported by Oax Sport participated in this critical event, leading our prominent athlete, Juana Cruz, to qualify for the UTMB Mexico in Puerto Vallarta.

Local and national participation followed, and we concluded the season in Veracruz by participating in the half and total marathon races.

We supported 10 athletes with race fees, apparel, accommodation, transportation, management, and publicity.

We participated in 6 national events in 4 different Mexican states and many other locals in Oaxaca. Many of the events were part of world series or international affiliations. Such as the Federation of Mexican Athletics Associations, ITRA, UTMB World Series, and Golden Trail International Series.

Our labor wouldn’t have been possible without the generous donations of individuals from the US and Mexico. See our summary below and contact us for any inquiries or clarifications. Thank you.
