How will the money be allocated?

Funds collected through the Protecting Haitian Patrimony Initiative, via its coordination site at Florida International University, are used to support the future development of Haiti through the preservation of Haitian cultural patrimony.  All donations are tax deductible. 

First priority is given to the immediate needs of the patrimonial libraries.  Other collections may be considered if funding allows or if other unforeseen critical needs arise.

Funds are intended for, but not limited to, use in the following critical areas:

  • Partner institution temporary staffing costs
  • Equipment
  • Archival and storage materials
  • Shipping
  • Preservation
  • Travel for specialists

The dLOC Executive Board has final approval authority on all allocations.  All funded partner institutions must comply with the reporting requirements of the FIU Foundation.
