An Evening of Fun & Giving

Dream Builders – Gala & Auction

Schools for Haiti invites you to a heartwarming evening of fun and giving on Saturday, April 20, 2024, to support a brighter future for children in Haiti while enjoying an evening of fellowship and philanthropy. Now more than ever, Haiti needs your help to build a firm foundation!


Schools for Haiti

Schools for Haiti, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, was founded by Bonnie and Gil Bailie from Tampa, Florida in 2006, opening the first school with 12 students. This year Schools for Haiti is supporting approximately 2,000 students in ten schools with a quality education, a hot nutritious lunch and a breakfast snack every school day. We need your help to keep this going! In 2024, we are expanding to 11 schools and a trade school serving approximately 2,200 students. Our new Wisconsin School is focusing on university prep and building the next generation of leaders in Haiti. This year we are also launching our “4 Pathways to Higher Education” offering University Prep, Trade School, Seminary, English Language, and Computer Training.

Please consider what role God has for you and what investment you can make to help us continue providing a Christ- centered education to our students and expand our work in Haiti to those who may not have access to an education.
