Welcome to Spirit of Hope
When we began Spirit of Hope, it was to meet a desperate need. We didn’t intend to build a sustainable organization and so never developed administrative leadership. So after raising more than $125,000 and supporting more than 100 volunteers to work in Haiti, the board of directors and I decided to formally dissolve Spirit of Hope. Therefore, we are no longer soliciting funds or accepting applications.
Our plan is to distribute the remaining assets and dissolve at the end of our fiscal year which is June 30, 2016.
We strongly encourage you to continue to help the people of Haiti. Our 2016 Amy Coe Award recipient is The Vassar Haiti Project. We encourage your continued support of Haiti through this wonderful organization. You can learn more about them and join their mailing list at www.thehaitiproject.org
On behalf of the Haitian people, I am deeply grateful to all who have supported this mission, in particular, Francis George and Pauline Lajoie, who have worked tirelessly as members of the board of directors since our inception. Where there is compassion and commitment, hope thrives. Over the past 5 years, you certainly provided the Spirit of Hope for Haiti, and I sincerely thank you.
Pam Reidy, president
