Founded in 2009, The Paradise Children’s Foundation (PCF) is a “not-for-profit” organization dedicated to improving the lives of Bahamian Children in need. Through philanthropic initiatives, we channel resources to support and benefit local organizations which have as their primary goal, the betterment of children throughout the Bahamas. Through your commitment, warmth and generosity, we hope to continue to make a positive impact on the lives of countless numbers of children in years to come.
On March 24th, 2009, the Government of the Bahamas licensed the Paradise Children’s Foundation as a not-for-profit corporation. The goals and objectives of the Foundation include but are not limited to:
- promoting charitable projects for the general benefit of children residing in The Commonwealth of The Bahamas;
- promoting the education, health and welfare of minors in the Bahamas, who through their social and economic circumstances, are in need of some type of assistance.
The Foundation is currently being funded by direct donations and special events. The formal launch of the Foundation took place on February 1st, 2013 through a gala fundraising evening called “Pandora’s Box in Paradise”. The event, held at the Atlantis Resort, proved to be a huge success with over 500 plus guests in attendance and over $500,000 in revenue raised. A second event, equally as successful, was held in 2014. Paradise Children’s Foundation supports programs and other child-based non-profits that directly improve the health and well-being of Bahamian Children. In the past, charities benefiting from Paradise Children’s Foundation have included but are not limited to: The Seahorse Institute, Ranfurly Home for Children, Elizabeth Estates Home for Children, Emergency Children’s Hostel, Bahamas Down Syndrome Association, Let’s Swim Bahamas, REACH, ICAN, School Hygiene Kit, School meal program. Through your commitment, warmth and generosity, we hope to continue to make a positive impact on the lives of hundreds of children in years to come. On behalf of the Paradise Children’s Foundation, we thank you for your support, and for helping make our dream of improving the lives of children in the Bahamas a reality.
