Pandemic Response

Due to the unprecedented nature of the pandemic, we give charities such as this one the opportunity to share the story of COVID's impact on them. Charities may submit their own pandemic responses through their nonprofit portal.


Haiti Partners Inc. reported being impacted by COVID-19 in the following ways:
  • Program Delivery

  • Fundraising Capacity

  • Revenue

  • Staffing

  • Administrative Capacity

  • Grants Received


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's operations financially:

We were unable to hold in-person fundraising events which is one of our major sources of revenue. We did, however, receive PPP monies and we also held an online event which was quite successful (though not enough to make up for the loss of in-person events).


How COVID-19 impacted the organization's delivery of programs:

Our schools had to close early in spring 2020. For a while Haiti was spared from a major outbreak of COVID, but in late spring of 2021 cases are rising and once again we've had to end the school year early.


How this organization adapted to changing conditions caused by COVID-19:

No in-person Board or Staff meetings. When our primary school could no longer accept students in person, we started having teachers going to visit student homes. Our several in-persons annual fundraisers were replaced by a single, online event.


Innovations the organization intends to continue permanently after the pandemic:

Our 2021 virtual "Growing Together Benefit" was very successful and turned out to be a great way to reach new people and generate great digital content. We hope to do it again in the future, perhaps on a biannual basis starting in 2022.

Story of Adaptability

The nonprofit has an opportunity to tell the story of how the organization adapted to tremendous external changes in the last year.


- In Haiti, in response to COVID-19, we educated our staff at the Children's Academy about COVID-19 prevention, created materials for digital and paper distribution, created masks for free distribution to staff, students and families, and did our best to work with students from home. We also created COVID prevention kits that were distributed to Children's Academy families as well as the families of students at our partner schools. - As Haitians abroad began to lose their jobs because of COVID-19 and remittances dried up, we created a program called, "Home Gardens," through which parents of students, as well as staff members, received support from the school to install water reservoirs at their homes and create permaculture gardens providing them with food security as well as a potential source of income. As this program has been a huge success, we intend to continue it into the future. - In response to COVID-19 on the US side, we began doing all our staff and Board meetings online. We also combined the several in-person fundraising and awareness raising events we do throughout the country each year into a single online event in February 2021. While we didn't reach our initially budgeted fundraising targets, we did get close and, with help from PPP funds, we ended the fiscal year well.
