Do It Foundation

Reaching Out

The Do It Foundation provides practical and immediate assistance to those who need it most: in conjunction with the Free Wheelchair Mission, an international organization, it has imported, assembled and distributed over 7,700 wheelchairs in Guanacaste and throughout Costa Rica. The Foundation coordinates with organizations such as schools, the Catholic Church, municipal governments, the Red Cross, Lions Clubs and the Boy and Girl Scouts to reach deep within local communities to those in need of its services.

The Do it Foundation is a charitable extension of the Papagayo Do it Center, the largest full service hardware and home center in Costa Rica.  It also cooperates closely with the nonprofit Clinica Biblica, Costa Rica’s oldest and largest private hospital.

The Guanacaste Community Fund supports a Foundation program to provide local communities with defibrillators and to train them in their use.

The President of the Do It Foundation, John Scheman, is a member of the GCF board of directors
