About IFC


The International Friendship Club (IFC) is a volunteer organization committed to funding charitable causes.  Social activities are also available to the membership, many of whom also volunteer countless hours endeavoring to make our programs a success. 

The IFC began in 1985 with a handful of people from the United States and Canada meeting socially.  This blossomed into the well known charitable organization that exists today. 

Through financial contributions, as well as devoted and compassionate service, humanitarian aid is being provided to needy children and families living in this beautiful tropical city.

The IFC takes pride in its unique Cleft Palate Program.  It begins with providing fees for transporting doctors who donate their time to perform the surgeries.  It ends with seeing smiles on the children’s faces and their parent’s tears of joy at its completion. 

Additionally, the IFC provides: free medication; disaster relief aid; educational assistance; monthly financial assistance; a dental hygiene program and food to families as well as gifts to other Charitable Institutions. 

Our membership has a caring compassionate camaraderie and love for the less fortunate, in abundance.  In order to maintain the programs that we support, your assistance is requested.  Be so kind as to consider this an invitation to become a valued member of our organization.

The IFC is a registered charitable organization in Mexico listed as Club Internacional de la Amistad.
