Join us in Growing Together
Saturday, Feb. 20, 2021, 5pm PT/8pm ET
A giant THANK YOU to everyone who joined us on February 20th or otherwise supported our first ever virtual event, the Growing Together Haiti Scholarship Benefit! With over 250 registrations – a large number of whom are totally new to HP – and friends stopping in from as far away as Australia, Ontario, England, New Zealand, and, of course, Haiti, it was a wonderful evening of sharing, learning, listening and, indeed, Growing Together. 🙂
Special thanks to our many generous sponsors without whom this event wouldn’t have been possible as well as the many kind and caring donors who helped us not only reach but surpass our financial goal. Your support is improving the lives of students, families and communities in Haiti. We couldn’t be more grateful!
Lastly, a heartfelt thank you to the entire team that made our first foray into the virtual event space a great success. From our super engaged volunteer Board of Directors, to our gifted content-creator friends – new and old, in both the US and Haiti – we couldn’t have done it without you. Mèsi!

For 2020-21 we have decided to combine all of our annual in-person events throughout the country into a single online benefit. While we regret not being able to be together in-person with our many supporters, we are excited about the fun and interesting possibilities the online format will allow, including a much larger national and even international audience, live MCs, and a variety of entertaining and educational video presentations from Haiti and the US.
Our theme, Growing Together, invites our diverse constituency to join together despite the circumstances that keep us apart and sends a clear welcome to those new to the Haiti Partners family. Our goal is to raise $100,000 – enough to support three classes of students at the Children’s Academy as well as significant funds needed for our six partner schools.
Thank you for your commitment to empowering the next generation of Haiti’s students to become the changemakers their country so urgently needs and to supporting the creation of a new school-based community development model. THANK YOU!
Help us reach the goal!
Unable to attend? You can still join in by helping us reach the $100K goal!
