Our Mission & Purpose
Jose Wejebe Memorial Foundation is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization under the tax-exempt code, and headquartered in the Florida Keys. “The mission of the Jose Wejebe Memorial Foundation is to honor Jose’s legacy by matching his passion for conservation, education, and making fishing dreams come true. “The Spanish Fly spirit lives in all of us.”
Jose Wejebe was more than a TV personality. His warm and genuine nature, deep compassion, and uplifting enthusiasm made him an inspiration to many. Throughout his life and career, Jose unselfishly donated his time, money and equipment to support countless charities. In order to honor Jose’s legacy our mission is to match his passion for conservation, education, and making fishing dreams come true for individuals facing a traumatic challenge or life-threatening illness. JWF has also provided assistance in the community to the homeless, service industry members, foster care, women’s shelters and hurricane relief.
JWF works with different non-profits, organizations, and community lead projects to make fishing dreams come true as :
- Outdoor Dream Foundation
- Recreational Department of the VA Hospital in Miami
- Wesley House ( a Keys foster care agency)
- COVID relief to Keys Community Services-CARE and SOS
- Coral Reef Recovery projects
- Rescue, Rehabilitation, and Release of marine animals
- Cognitive behavioral research on marine mammals
Donations of in-kind items help us maximize the amount of funds that are dedicated to making fishing dreams come true. Do you have product you would like to donate for our kids and veterans, or that could be used to raise funds? Maybe offer your professional service to help keep costs down? All in kind donations are tax deductible.
