Size 550x415 img 1405

Pay it Forward! Help our trip leaders, college students, teachers & members of the Haitian Diaspora contribute to the rebuilding of Haiti!

Let Haiti Live and Elevate Destinations have partnered to develop the Elevate Haiti program providing Let Haiti Live projects with funding, resources and human capital, enabling concerned citizens to engage in urgent service and life-changing experiential learning.

Elevate Haiti volunteer trips have made a significant impact in the two years since the program was started, including raising over $40,000 in funds directly invested in Haitian programs.

Please join us in the launch of the Elevate Haiti Volunteer Sponsorship Fund!

Your donation will allow our trip leaders, college students, teachers and members of the Haitian Diaspora (Haitians and Haitian-Americans living in the US) to contribute to the rebuilding of Haiti at low cost to them.

Please donate to our scholarship fund and provide a life-changing experience for a Haiti trip leader, student, teacher or a young member of the Haitian Diaspora.

We are raising $5000 to:

  • Offset the cost of trip expenses for students, teachers and young members of the Haitian Diaspora interested in giving back to Haiti.
  • Cover the cost of travel for our trip leaders, who are taking on the challenge of being responsible for the needs of all our volunteers!

Please donate today to support our Sponsorship fund!

Companies: we would love to recognize you for your contribution – please contact: Andrea Atkinson at for more information!

Students, teachers and members of the Haitian Diaspora under the age of 30: Please contact Andrea Atkinson at to apply for sponsorship!

About the Volunteer Trips: Elevate Haiti offers an intense volunteer experience working in solidarity with local residents. Since 2010, Elevate Destinations has run four successful trips to Haiti, with a fifth trip planned for July 2012. Each traveler must raise a minimum of $500 as part of going on the trip. We have raised over $40,000 for projects on the ground in Haiti and have engaged over 30 volunteers in on the ground projects. Many of these volunteers have made their way back to Haiti or continue to support Haitian projects.

About Elevate Destinations: Established in 2005, Elevate Destinations has become an industry leader in designing travel that gives back. Focused on three main areas -- Donor Travel, Private Travel and Urgent Service Travel -- Elevate Destinations has pioneered innovative ways to connect altruistic resources and travelers with communities in need worldwide.

About Let Haiti Live: Let Haiti Live is a comprehensive program for Haiti working to strengthen the independence and self-determination of the Haitian people in all areas of life. Let Haiti Live mobilizes Haitians through popular education, alternative media, and food security projects; strengthens the capacity of existing organizations that share our philosophy of empowering Haitian leadership and vision; and supports Haitian-led solutions to some of the country’s most pressing issues, with a specific focus on environmental stewardship and rural development.
