Frequently Asked Questions about Servants for Haiti
Laurae Richards, now president of SFH, and her husband Howard founded the organization in 2005.
Back in 2000, several of us went on a short-term mission trip to Haiti with our church. In the people of Haiti, we saw tremendous suffering and need. Yet in the midst of it all, we saw a joy and faith we had rarely encountered. We were humbled and challenged. Out of that challenge, Servants for Haiti was born.
Besides making frequent trips to Haiti, we partner with trustworthy Haitian nationals who live with their country’s problems every day.
Absolutely! We are a an officially recognized 501(3)(c) non-profit organization under the Internal Revenue Code. Your gifts to SFH are fully tax-deductible.
Servants for Haiti works on a very lean administrative budget. We will never use more than 10% of our income for administrative and fund-raising purposes. The board is composed entirely of volunteers. The only paid staff are Haitian nationals. This in itself is a source of assistance as we supply meaningful employment in a nation with 70-80% unemployment.
While it might seem like a good idea to send things to Haiti, such well-meaning acts can actually do long term damage. We do on occasion ask for specific items needed for a team, or for the missionary we will be working with. If you are interested in helping in donating to these needs, please contact us.
