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 is currently discussing a cultural project which could include aspects of an arts center, open air market and museums.

The Coco Point Fund was established in 1978 to honor the staff at Coco Point Lodge, which was located on the southern tip of Barbuda.
The Fund’s primary focus rests on improvements to the Island’s education and health care resources.
In September of 2017 Hurricane Irma, a Category 5 storm, passed directly over Barbuda, destroying all facilities and most homes. The Fund’s relief efforts are robust and ongoing, and here’s how you can help.
