Charity Fund Distribution

The Club Cruceros Charity Committee vets local charities and brings recommendations to the Board of Directors. Each year the Club finds a wide variety of ways in which to help.  Each month, each season, brings new opportunities to lend a helping hand, and the club rises to the occasion, time and again. To ensure the groups chosen use the donation wisely the Club makes every effort to only donate goods. If the charity requires cash the funds are usually contributed with the stipulation that receipts be provided. In some instances cash scholarship donations are made.
