The Caribbean Media Exchange Inc.’s (CMEx) founding commitment was that all funds and in-kind donations raised would predominantly stay within the Caribbean region, supporting the various CMEx conferences on sustainable tourism in the area. CMEx has kept that promise.
By keeping our operating expenses extremely low, the cost of providing our events is entirely paid for by the revenues received through donations, sponsorships and our intern and volunteer programs. This efficient use of funds allows CMEx to channel the maximum amount of capable resources to the conferences we organize, while incorporating a system of checks and balances to ensure proper resource usage of funds.
In essence, the CMEx model is a bridge between the needs of donors, interns, volunteers, and the destinations we support. Interns and volunteers seek cultural immersion, development training, project management experience, and exposure to relationships and professional opportunities. The demand to satisfy these needs fund the administration of our organization. This stream of income allows CMEx to use all donor funds to financially provide for the needs of our conference attendees. This provides an attractive incentive to donors who recognized that by investing in CMEx, their resources will achieve their intended impact.
CMEx is a nonprofit charitable entity with 501(c)(3) status. We are a non-endowed organization and rely on the annual support of generous individuals, foundations, and corporations. To see a breakdown of fundraising results, we invite you to review our 990 documents.
