Wish Lists – Community Needs

The Wish Lists are identified by local community leaders with Friends of Cozumel volunteers and reviewed quarterly. Items focus on directly benefitting children and families “in need” (those less fortunate who have very limited resources) and non-profit efforts that provide educational opportunities, spiritual guidance and other support for children and families. Our goal is to help families become self-sufficient and improve their quality of life. Occasionally the Wish Lists include needs to benefit the broader community related to the environment, health and safety, culture, etc.

There are different types of needs and options for giving . . .

  • In-kind contributions providing needed items/services
  • One-time cash gift for local purchase of a specific need or sponsorship of an event
  • Ongoing cash donation to support on-going operational needs
  • Undesignated gift to use for the greatest need
  • ALL cash donations are appreciated regardless of the amount. Donations may partially fund a specific effort that may be added to contributions of others.

For Wish Lists . . . Go To
CAM School for Children with Disabilities
Christian Education and Evangelism
Families In Need and School Supplies

NUAFA’s wish list has been removed at their request while the organization’s constitution is being revised to broaden their scope of efforts. During this review NUAFA is not able to receive additional donations per government regulations to ensure their inventory of resources remains the same. They anticipate finishing the review early 2013. It is a proactive measure for all non-profit organizations undergoing review and modification to prevent fraud. In-kind and monetary donations received during the review period by Friends of Cozmel specifically for NUAFA will be stored and presented when NUAFA confirms they can resume receiving donations.

    I may be going to Cozumel in June. This is an annual dive trip. We may be able to transport some light weight supplies and would be blessed to do it.
