Fund Raising Programs
There are a number of ways that the Eagle’s Wings Foundation seeks to raise money, one of which involves direct sponsorship and donations from corporations and individuals, which are eligible for tax relief. Another way that Eagle’s Wings Foundation raises funds is to receive donations from Universal Vacation Club and Villa Group timeshare members who donate regularly or who leave coins in the collection tanks at each of the Villa del Palmar resorts.
The Eagle’s Wings Foundation also runs a bazaar, which sells items that are in good condition donated from the Villa del Palmar resorts that are no longer used in the hotels. Things like pillows, mattresses, fridges, microwaves and so on are sold at very cheap prices to help local communities as well as to raise money to use for charitable purposes.
As well as money, there are volunteer programs where Universal Vacation Club members donate time or skills to help the communities supported by the Eagle’s Wings Foundation. The charity also accepts in kind gifts such as school buses or medical equipment, in addition to smaller items that are regularly donated like rice, toilet paper, pencils and school supplies.
