Friends of Nosara, a not-for-profit organization, was created to support activities that improve the quality of life in the town of Nosara. These activities include, but are not limited to, projects and programs related to culture, education & training, the environment, public health & safety, and civic life. Friends of Nosara offers a means by which the expatriate community of Nosara, as well as visiting tourists, can thank the local community for the openness and warmth with which they have been welcomed by supporting projects that enhance the expatriate and local communities and strengthen the relationship between them. Friends of Nosara has no salaried employees; all are volunteers.
The GCF has worked closely with Friends of Nosara since the former’s founding in 2014, and has benefitted from its experience and local contacts. The GCF has also supported the work of a number of FON’s partner organizations.
