ABOUT US A Strong Foundation for Our Future
We established the Continental Capital Foundation out of the deeply-held belief that Mexican communities deserve an empowered life with access to clean water. To do this, we’re engaging a network of partners in the public and NGO sector to provide fresh water to under-serviced communities, connect rural houses to sewage water services, and empower farm-owners through substantive opportunities.

Continental Capital is driven by a grand purpose: to turn our curiosity into large-scale projects. Part of our drive comes from truly knowing, working with and investing in the communities in which we operate. We believe in empowering and generating value for every stakeholder involved in our supply chain. Together, we strive for collaboration with our planet at the forefront.
To work with communities in Tulum, Mexico, strengthen the availability of safe water, ensure sanitation and bolster resilience for inhabitants struggling to fulfill their basic needs.
To help create a more sustainable and dignified future for Tulum with a focus on capacity-building, stakeholder partnerships and environmental rights.
In Mexico, the lack of access to clean running water for personal hygiene, cooking, and cleaning forces under-serviced communities to use unsafe water. This increases the risk of contracting cholera, diarrhea, hepatitis, dengue, and other diseases. Illnesses from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. In Tulum, with a significant pollution problem from tourist activity, contaminated water deeply threatens the health and safety of these communities.
Moreover, some are not connected to sewage water services that are part of the larger sewage network, causing problems like soil contamination, more contaminated water, and bad odors. Pollution provides nutrients to the Sargasso seaweed damaging our beaches and pristine waters. It also kills the flora and fauna from our Mesoamerican Reef System (SAM), the second-largest reef in the world.
We are animated and inspired by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals, particularly those advocating for water sustainability, availability and sanitation. We truly believe that it is vital for the future of Tulum—and its people—that we champion for these causes together.
We are constantly looking for new partners and collaborators who want to impact and transform the futures of communities in Tulum through joint projects, individual donations, and volunteer work.
