2. US Taxpayers

Action Bequia does not have 501(c)3 designation so for donations of greater than US$250 you may want to consider donating to 501(c)3 designated Community Foundation for St. Vincent & the Grenadines (CFSVG) - please contact Felicity Harley, President of CFSVG (, at Address 350 Burnt Hill Road, Hebron, CT 06248, USA; telephone +1 860 882 4576

You will still be able to identify the project(s) that you would like to support and Action Bequia will recognize, in your name(s), the donations you make to CFSVG.

3. Canadian Citizens and Residents

Action Bequia does not have charitable designation in Canada, so for donations of greater than CDN$250, and to ensure tax efficiency, you may consider donating to Bequia Mission, which is a registered Canadian charity. You will still be able to identify the project(s) that you would like to support, and Action Bequia will recognize, in your name(s), the donations you make to Bequia Mission.

Of course, donations can still be made directly to Action Bequia, though tax receipts in that instance cannot be issued.
