Cartagena: Social Complex
In September 2011, we opened our new operations center: The Social Center, a macro project that enabled us to expand the installed capacity, the quality of services, and the impact generated to the city. This construction has 13,000 square meters, with classrooms, cafeteria, administrative offices, productive workshops, the Child Development Center, the Juan Felipe Medical Center and green areas.
As a commitment of the Foundation towards the environment, the Social Center is a reference of civic culture, bioclimatic and respect towards our ecosystem. Our headquarters was built under the connotation of green building and we are certified as: LEED silver category from the US Green Building Council, making us the first Foundation in the country with this certification in sustainable operation.
Our office in Bogota is coordinated with the administrative area in Cartagena, in order to determine the strategic vision of the organization. In this office, projects are formulated to obtain resources for the operation of the Foundation in Cartagena. Located in Bogota are the Direction of Projects, Communications, Replicability and Corporate Management.
Juanfe Foundation has gained great visibility and acceptance in the United States. This is why we count with an office in Miami that takes care of mobilizing resources from individual and corporate US donors to the Foundation. We are registered by the IRS, entity in charge of the tributary issues in the U.S. as a non-profit organization that allows us to grant the 5O1C3 for tax exemption.
In Madrid we have an office that takes care of mobilizing resources for social investment of Spanish and European organizations to Colombia. The Foundation is constituted under the protection of the Ministry of Health, Social Services and Equality, following the Spanish law, allowing us to provide a certificate for tax benefits in the European Community.
