Supporting communities across the Turks & Caicos.
WHO WE ARE:
HIRTAC is a non-profit relief initiative, founded by UK-based Turks and Caicos Islanders and past residents.
HIRTAC works in conjunction with an advisory panel of varied expertise in the Turks & Caicos Islands (TCI) comprising local non-profit charity Food for Thought, as well as a number of other established individuals in their respective fields.
To establish a mode of reputable, transparent funding to support the humanitarian response in the TCI following Hurricane Irma.
THE METHOD BEHIND THE MISSION
1. Short Term: To act as an agent to support emergency relief efforts which assist local communities in restoring their homes & businesses. This includes receiving donations of goods and facilitating outreach programmes/initiatives.
2. Long Term: Invest funds raised in rebuilding opportunities for the youth of the local communities in TCI.
THE MONEY BEHIND THE MISSION:
WHERE YOUR DONATION GOES
STEP 1 | DONATE |
You raise and donate incredible amounts of money to help the people of the Turks and Caicos Islands. For those in the US, please note you can make 501(c)(3) tax-deductible contributions. Fiscal sponsorship has kindly been made available to HIRTAC through the Turks and Caicos Reef Fund.
STEP 2 | ALLOCATE |
We add together all the money and use it to give grants to organisations whose purpose aligns with our mission of supporting urgent relief and rebuilding opportunities for the youth of the Turks and Caicos Islands.
In this immediate period, we are helping to identify suitable proposals and reaching out to the communities in need.
Please get in touch to find out how to apply for a grant here.
STEP 3 | DISTRIBUTE |
It takes several weeks for each batch of funding to be allocated so we can ensure the most efficient use of donations. Money is given out in stages rather than a lump sum so we can regularly maintain its most effective use.
During this process, HIRTAC endeavours to obtain sponsorship of every avenue, from transport to external service/administration costs. This means that every penny you give is most efficiently invested in rebuilding opportunities for the Turks and Caicos Islands.
STEP 4 | OVERSEE |
We oversee projects & provide updates on the success stories of your generous contributions!
