Impact in The Bahamas

Resilient Communities

Communities in The Bahamas have the resilience to flourish even in the face of adversity.

Hurricane Dorian & COVID-19 Response

When Hurricane Dorian struck The Bahamas in September 2019, it was a national tragedy. The storm killed hundreds, left thousands missing and did an estimated $3.4 billion in damage to the nation’s economy. The global pandemic further compounded difficulties. Templeton World Charity Foundation, in conjunction with its sister foundations, the John Templeton Foundation and Templeton Religion Trust, responded to this emergency by donating over $5 M dollars since late 2019. To date we have given 75 grants to 54 Bahamian non-profit organizations at the front lines, focused on several areas of need, including reconstruction, food security, and mental health service.
