There are four ways to make monetary donations:
1. US Tax Deductible donation via check: Texoma Chapel Ministries has a strong commitment to support Cozumel mission efforts. They donate from their mission funds and also process tax deductible donations for Friends of Cozumel. Texoma Chapel provides written acknowledgement of contributions to all donors for their tax records and provides 100% of each donation to Cozumel mission work. There are no administrative fees.
2. US Tax Deductible donation via electronic bank transfer to Texoma Chapel Ministries
3. Send a check payable to Friends of Cozumel; 6130 Colt Drive; West Des Moines, Iowa 50266
4. Cash donations (not tax deductible) are accepted by Friends of Cozumel volunteers in the US or Mexico in US dollars or pesos.
More about how Friends of Cozumel handles donations:
Our goal is to help families and organizations become self-sufficient not create dependencies on donations. We typically sponsor learning opportunities to help develop skills and/or provide resources needed versus giving money directly to families or organizations to ensure donations are used for the need identified and consistent with the donor’s intention. Example: When a cash donation is received to benefit a specific family, the money is used by our volunteers to purchase food, supplies or pay for school expenses for the children or whatever is specifically needed by that family. Then we deliver the donation to them. When cash payments are given to local organization leaders (i.e. President of NUAFA, pastors, etc.) for a specific need (i.e. utility payments, purchase of educational materials), they sign a receipt when they receive the donation. They are required to provide a receipt for the product or services purchased from the vendor so we are able to document and track exactly how donated funds are used.
THANK YOU! Your donations WILL make a positive difference in the lives of others.
