Helping Haitians Help Haitians

Si ou manje ak moun, manje ou pa janm fini.
If you eat with people, your food is never finished.

Outreach to Haiti is always grateful for a lending hand. There are many ways to help. Here are a few:

Donate by mail.

Print out our donor form and mail it to us. We are always glad to take donations over the telephone, too. Just call us at: 860.848.2237 ext. 206.

   

Mission House Wish List

Our mission house in Haiti welcomes guests year-round. And, from time to time, we ask for help in keeping our accommodations fresh for all our travelers. If you would like to give a special gift to Outreach to Haiti, we would warmly accept any of the following, as new (not used). Please contact our office to make a contribution.

  • Twin bed sheets
  • Twin bed mattress covers
  • Pillows
  • Towels & face cloths
  • Shower curtains & shower mats
  • Sturdy plastic dinner plates & bowls
  • Coffee mugs
  • Tea kettle
  • Electric griddle
  • Salt & pepper shaker
  • Large serving spoons
  • Cloth napkins (set of 8 or more)

   

Give a Gift of Hope.

This is an opportunity to honor family and friends on special occasions, or to give in memory of a loved one.  Review the different gift options in the brochure, then print out the last page and mail it to us. Or you can contact us and we will send a gift card to the person of your choosing, or we will send the gift card to you. (The attached brochure predated the merger that created Outreach to Haiti. The organization name appears different, but it is still effective for Outreach.)

   

Secure a Matching Gift from your employer.

Corporations and companies can help the needy of Haiti, too!  Ask your employer for a company form to submit along with your donation. Or, send us your donation first, and present our acknowledgment to your Matching Gifts Officer. Your company can then complete the submission process.

Leave a Legacy or another planned gift.

  • BEQUESTS — Designate Outreach to Haiti as a beneficiary in your will. A will provides a way of remembering the people and causes that were important to you. It is a way to shape your legacy. Wording for including Outreach to Haiti in your will can go as follows: “I bequeath to Diocese of Norwich Outreach to Haiti, a non-profit organization incorporated and based in the Diocese of Norwich, Norwich, CT, the sum of $______ (or ___%) of the remainder of my estate.
  • Designate Outreach to Haiti as a beneficiary of a CHARITABLE TRUST
  • Designate Outreach to Haiti as a beneficiary of your LIFE INSURANCE policy. 
  • Donate REAL ESTATE to Outreach to Haiti by setting up a life estate.

   

Give the gift of stock.

Appreciated securities are cost-effective assets to use in making a gift. When you transfer ownership of a long-term holding to Outreach to Haiti, you receive a charitable deduction for the full market value and you incur no capital gains tax.

   

Visit Haiti.

A Creole proverb tells us that what the eye cannot see, the heart does not feel. Outreach to Haiti welcomes your interest in learning about Haiti, its people, culture, and history. Even if you cannot travel to Haiti, we are always eager to talk with you.

   

Shop at Haiti's Back Porch - either here on-line or at one of our church or festival booths. Call us at 860.848.2237 ext 206. We can tell you where we will be next!

 All profits from the store go back to Haiti, to support our programs and to bring more Haitian artists into world markets through Haiti’s Back Porch.  Interested in organizing a craft sale at your church?  Please call the office and thank you!

   

Make an In-Kind Donation.

From time to time, Outreach to Haiti welcomes specific equipment, goods and services to benefit those in need in Haiti. On this site, we will post the items and services we are seeking as they are needed. (Please do not drop off any unsolicited items.) All in-kind donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
