The Story

EVENT DATE: Apr 23, 2016

FUNDRAISER SET UP DEADLINE: Apr 25, 2017

The Dominican Joe Foundation is a 501c3 U.S. based organization. The DJF provides many services to the members of the community in Las Terrenas, Dominican Republic. Our main mission is education and literacy based initiatives. Last year, through our fundraising efforts, we sponsored 53 impoverished children to attend local private schools. In addition to the payment of tuition, we provided and paid for the school uniforms, shoes, backpacks, school text books and also all related school supplies throughout the year. In addition to this, we also held 3 different medical missions where we brought U.S. Doctors to Las Terrenas to see and treat members of the community. Our goals for this years fundraising period are to raise enough funds to continue our  Dominican Joe summer camp which allowed for more than 100 impoverished children to participate in a summer educational camp run by a proven U.S based organization that has a track record of running educational schools and camps in the Dominican Republic. This will be  happening again in July 2016.  The cost for running this program is $12,000 USD. In addition to this, we are hoping to start our very first Dominican Joe Foundation montesorri program for the upcoming school year.  This program will make a significant difference in the community over time but it is not cheap, our annual costs are $25,000 USD. Our educational program is being run in cooperation with another long time U.S based 501c3 organization which has been running their own schools in the Dominican Republic for the last 15 years. As we are nearing our 3nd annual fundraiser on April 23rd, 2016, I would like to get the word out to as many as possible so that we can raise the necessary funds to meet our goal.  You can find more information about us @ www.dominicanjoefoundation.org
