The WCCR Fundraising Efforts
Members of The WCCR actively support worthwhile projects in Costa Rica through their donations and volunteer service. The WCCR Fundraising Committee is responsible for developing and administering a comprehensive, integrated fundraising strategy to support all WCCR Charitable Programs. These programs currently include providing scholarship support for deserving Costa Rican young people and by purchasing schoolbooks for elementary age children in rural areas through La Nacion’s Libros para Todos initiative.
Other fundraising events include our annual Charity/Friend-raising Event, neighborhood teas and fundraising events sponsored by WCCR Special Interest Groups, individual club members and Friends of WCCR.
