What we do... Club Projects & Fund Raisers
Community service projects are selected by the club with the encouragement of participation by all members. Projects may vary depending on the needs of the community. However, they usually are a combination of both general and specific community interests. Activities can concentrate on a social, educational or team building themes. Projects have been adopted throughout the years and we are always looking for more great ideals.

Where the money we raise goes... Nationally & Locally

Nationally - Cosmopolitan International, dedicated as it is to enriching the lives of others, became aware of the serious need to combat diabetes and as early as the 1970's began contributing substantial sums to several national research programs. Many of which have become the standard for care today.

Locally - The Cosmopolitan Club of Aurora has partnered with the Diabetic Wellness Center at Presense Mercy Medical Center in Aurora, IL. We have donated funds to purchase computer software, which is needed for ADA certification, a flat screen TV for aiding in the educational classes and assisted in establishing and contributing $10,000 to an endowment fund. For more information on the Diabetic Wellness Center at Presense Mercy Medical Center, you can contact Maria Aurora Diaz, mariaaurora.diaz@provena.org 630-542-7661.

Other contributions are made to local social service agencies and we offer scholarships to diabetic children in the area to allow them to attend Diabetic Summer Camps.

ALL PROCEEDS from fund raisers are used for diabetic research, education and detection.
