The Coco Point Fund was founded to provide much needed support to the people of Barbuda by providing scholarships, health services, and educational initiatives. The fund has become especially re-committed to the island and the people of Barbuda after Hurricane Irma devastated the island. There is much work still to be done.
The Fund needs to raise $3 million in the next 3-4 years to read our goals.
In 2019 the William Cody Kelly Scholarship awarded 13 student grants for college and advanced training. The Fund also completed teacher training and plans to create a special ed program.
The Fund has successfully rebuilt the Preschool and Daycare Center, and assisted in the Wellness Clinic.

The Fund funds successful community projects like Becoming and works with partners discussing cultural needs like an arts center, open air market and museums.
