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.
