Last week, The Bahamas was hit by the strongest known storm in the islands’ history. Despite the fact that the category 5 storm has moved on, the Bahamian people have just begun the process of rebuilding their communities. 

With damage to 90-100% of businesses and homes on the islands of Grand Bahama and Abaco, the Bahamas are in need of immediate and long term relief.  While national and local organizations focus on providing storm survivors with immediate access to food, water, medical care, and shelter, the CDF Disaster Recovery fund helps local cooperatives get back on their feet after disasters. Help Bahamian co-ops get back to business with a donation to the CDF Disaster Recovery Fund.

How You Can Help:

The cooperative community not only focuses on economic growth and equality but provides support through times of success and times of crisis. CDF has pledged to donate funds to help cooperatives affected by Hurricane Dorian rebuild and thrive once again. Join us in making an impact in the lives of those affected by making a donation to the Disaster Recovery Fund today.

CDF will coordinate with local organizations on the islands to get assistance to cooperatives in need. 100% of the donations to the Disaster Recovery Fund go to disaster recovery. CDF does not use disaster recovery funds to pay for any of its operating expenses or fund administrative costs. 

If you prefer to write a check, you can send your donation to CDF and 1775 Eye St NW, 8thFloor, Washington, DC, 20006. Please note that your donation is for Hurricane Disaster Recovery.

Donations to CDF may be tax-deductible and donors of $25 or more will receive a letter of acknowledgement which can be used for tax records.
