#GivingTuesday is a global day of generosity that takes place on November 29, 2022. It's an opportunity for people around the world to come together to thank, help, give, show kindness, and share what they have with those in need.
We ask that you DONATE TODAY to make a difference in the lives of Akumal children
In November 2021, we decided to focus our fundraising efforts around the #GivingTuesday theme, in order to maximize the awareness of this international initiative. Your response was overwhelming and your donations allowed us to enter 2022 with half of our anual operating expenses covered. This has never happened before! It has allowed us to be more strategic with our time and efforts and we didn't have to constantly ask for donations as has been the case in the last few years. Thank you!
Once again, our goal is to enter 2023 with half of our Operational Expenses covered by our fundraising efforts on #GivingTuesday. Our Operating expenses cover teachers' salaries, utilities, building maintenance, and basic classroom supplies. This would once again allow us the freedom to focus on the children without such a large expense looming over us.
All donations are deductible for US taxpayers.

A few things we’ve accomplished in 2022:
Our much-needed renovations are complete! 😊
We added 3 additional part-time teachers to our Summer Camp program to ensure the students are getting enough attention and instruction. 😊
We've begun the process of incorporating all of our activities (Hekab Be, Akumal Arts Festival, Akumal Art & Water Community Park) under one non-profit umbrella which will be known as The Akumal Cultural Foundation. Once the process is complete, you'll have the option to earmark future donations for the initiative(s) that resonate with you!
All of this and more - while still dealing with the impact of Covid and the fallout the global economy is having here. ☹️
Our focus for 2023:
The formation of a Hekab Be Mexican Board which, in conjunction with the Hekab Be staff will manage programming and oversight of Hekab Be. Once complete, the US 501(c)3 will only serve as the fundraising and marketing arm.
The completion of the Akumal Art & Water Community Park in Akumal pueblo for children to have a safe, water-centric play area. The children in the pueblo have very little access to our beautiful beaches. ☹️ Construction is complete and we are waiting for final CFE and government approvals to announce the Grand Opening date.
