In selecting the organizations included on this list, we have considered the following factors:

  • Long-term sterling reputation in the local and/or international community
  • An established track record of action and results in providing assistance to survivors and stricken communities, following a crisis or natural disaster
  • Whether the organization prepares annual financial statements that are accessible for inspection by donors
  • Designation as a charity, not for profit, or similar structure in the relevant governing jurisdiction
  • Public access to a website (not only a Facebook page) that clearly sets out the mission of the organization, and explains in detail the nature of the Hurricane Dorian relief work being conducted by the organization
  • Donor access to an online link that processes credit card donations in a straightforward and secure fashion. This link can also provide information for additional payment methods such as wire transfers and cheques.

Please note several exclusions:

  • Commercial organizations will not be considered
  • Intermediary organizations (simply collecting funds on behalf of other organizations) will not be considered
  • Donors seeking to make contributions directly to the Bahamas Government are asked to contact NEMA, the National Emergency Management Agency
