Frequently Asked Questions About Our GoFundMe is the only fund raising program exclusively dedicated to helping The Public Hospitals Authority of The Commonwealth of the Bahamas to restore healthcare facilities to those devastated by Hurricane Dorian. Right now, flood damage has rendered the only hospital on Grand Bahamas largely non-operational and two vital clinics no longer exist. As such, critical services are being delivered in field hospitals.

When the news cycle shifts elsewhere and all the international support eventually departs, PHA still faces a difficult and long road ahead as vital infrastructure is reestablished, facilities rebuilt, moldy walls repaired, damaged equipment replaced, and life-giving and life-saving services eventually returned. Donate with confidence. This fund is managed by SBP, a highly respected U.S. Non-Profit founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina (5 Star rating by Charity Navigator). Here is more helpful information:

How much is looking to be raised?

The GoFundMe (GFM) Campaign has a stretch goal of $1M and is focused on immediate restoration of services at the hospital and clinics when temporary facilities leave in about 3 months.

What are the specific allocations of the funds?

100% of all the funds will go towards restoring healthcare facilities and services.  This includes restoration/construction of the hospital and clinic facilities as well as purchase of necessary equipment.

Are donations tax deductible in the U.S.?

All donations are tax deductible given the fund manager, SBP, is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Who’s managing the distribution of the funds?

SBP, as US Non-Profit founded in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, will manage the GoFundMe (GFM).  All proceeds will be transferred to BAF, A Bahamian Financial and Insurance Company, that has established an account to be held in trust for The Public Hospitals Authority.
