Founded in 2004 by Mrs. Letty Coppel, the Letty Coppel Foundation was created with the objective of improving the quality of life and development of the communities of Los Cabos and Mazatlán.

“There is nothing like giving back and having a positive influence on other people, having the opportunity to improve people’s lives is not only a wonderful opportunity, but also a responsibility that we all have, I am blessed to be able to do this. If you do not have a particular foundation to support, I invite you to support the Letty Coppel Foundation, help is always necessary and much appreciated. “- Letty Coppel.

“All the gold in the world means nothing, what endures are the good actions we do for our fellow men” -Adolfo Prieto

Our Founder

Born in Monterrey, Nuevo León, the fourth of eleven brothers, Letty Gonzales knew at the age of 14 what it is to work to help, since she suffered the abandonment of her father and had to help her mother to support the family, a fact that without place forged his character.

A great reader, devoted to exercise, healthy eating, her family and the nourishment of the body and spirit, she is the owner of a security that allows her to face any adversity and achieve great challenges.

In 1973 she changed his residence to the city of Mazatlán, and with his three small daughters Lety, Hayley and Babara Coppel Gonzáles, to whom she worked full-time. Mazatlán became his second home and the place of the unforgettable friends with whom she still maintains contact.

The growth of the Pueblo Bonito Hotels, of which she is co-owner, made her go again in search of new destinations, this time in the Peninsula of Baja California Sur, specifically in Cabo San Lucas, where she has seen her best stages of professional success. And the place where her daughters left to start their own family.

In 2004 and based on the philosophy of the Monterrey philanthropist Adolfo Prieto “All the gold in the world means nothing. What endures are the good actions we do for our peers “decides to create the Letty Coppel Foundation, to help those who need it most, institutionalizing and formalizing the altruistic work to which they have always dedicated a great part of their time.

The Letty Coppel Foundation is the materialization of Letty Coppel’s dreams and wishes. Since her youth she was focused on assistance and social welfare activities. In her native city of Monterrey, she went to rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, shelters, to support activities, to talk with the people who were there.

Her decision, dedication and high altruistic spirit makes her maintain her objective of positively impacting the lives of children, youth, senior citizens, and families, and why not, of entire communities throughout the country through its Foundation.
