Are you a visitor or local looking to volunteer?
At this time, there are COVID-restrictions on working together. Volunteer opportunities are limited, but we will post on our website when we need help completing the Exuma Children’s Emergency Shelter. We hope to solicit volunteers in the construction of the children’s playground in April or May (2021)
Ways to donate, COVID safe!
Thank you for thinking about donating to the Exuma Foundation. Remember you can make a cash donation to our (US) 501(c)3 Foundation, and receive a letter acknowledging your tax-deductible donation. If you are coming to Exuma, and you would like to donate goods, please understand that you will need to declare what you bring into The Bahamas, and items may be subject to duty and VAT (value added tax).
Our major initiative in 2021 is to complete and open our Exuma Children’s Emergency Shelter. We would welcome donations of new children’s non-perishable items for the shelter. We will post our wish list on the website. Many children’s items can be brought into the country duty-free. Type your paragraph here.

Great Exuma and the Exuma Cays are located in the south central region of The Bahamas. George Town, Great Exuma is 245 kilometres or 152 miles from Nassau, New Providence. Great Exuma and the Exuma Cays are part of the “Family Islands”, where historically Bahaian settlements were established. Late in the 20th century, much of the population migrated to Nassau, the country’s capital, where about 80% of all Bahamians live. Great Exuma is accessed by air and sea.
