On December 29, 2022, To Build A Village applied for non-profit status through the State of Idaho. Our legal name became To Build A Village Inc. Our bylaws are HERE.
On March 10, 2023, To Build A Village Inc. was granted 501(c)3 status through the Internal Revenue Service HERE, making all donations tax deductible.
To Build A Village was also listed through the PayPal Giving Fund as a non-profit organization HERE. This means no transaction fees for us or donors!
We decided to continue looking for donors to fund the remaining $14,033. Many generous donors had gotten the medical equipment and supplies into Florida's shipping lanes. We couldn't let their work unravel on Haiti's doorstep. We started to roll out our story.
We realize that this is a large sum of money, but small when compared to the already donated $100,000+ in medical equipment, hygiene kits, leg braces, water filters, clothing, shoes, and supplies that were delivered. Your donation is providing a lifetime of medical care for several Haitian communities who did not have access to medical care.

We have learned a lot through this project and will be able to use this experience to understand "all” costs associated with shipping on future projects.
Please consider joining us in bringing this project to fruition. Every time you visit the doctor and feel grateful for your medical care, you will be able to say (within yourself) that you made the same privilege possible for several families in several small Haitian communities who didn't have access to medical care.
