40 years of caring and changing lives

LIVING UP OUR MISSION TO BRING A RAY OF HOPE TO THE MOST VULNERABLE

Our all-volunteer organization works hard to make a difference, from providing life-saving care to children in Cartagena to supporting life-changing education for deserving students in Tampa, Florida. 
Through events and activities, our volunteers raise funds to promote the economic, cultural, educational, and health care of populations of children and adults from various Hispanic American countries and the United States. Our efforts target groups at risk of health, poor schooling, or social segregation due to their economic situation, lack of education and /or opportunities.

Colombian Volunteer Ladies Tampa Bay at a Glance

Colombian Volunteer Ladies of Tampa Bay, a not-for-profit 501 (C) (3) organization, was founded in 1982 by a group of ladies from the Tampa Bay area.

        Throughout our 40 years of existence, we have donated nearly a million dollars to different charities in Colombia, Latin America, and the United States.  Originally, the main purpose of the organization was to help the underprivileged and deserving children.  This goal, however, was expanded many years ago to include the elderly, the sick, and the disabled, as well as local organizations in need of our support.


Our volunteers bear out all the operations, therefore our expenses are minimal.
