Projects that benefit women and children
Our Annual Grant which focuses on work in the Americas
Education Awards and Development Grants programs of The FAWCO Foundation
The seeds of the FAUSA Philanthropic program were planted in 1997 with donations of backpacks filled with books and school supplies for children in Bogota, Columbia. FAUSA’s philanthropy has evolved through the years to become a dedicated and reliable support for FAWCO and The FAWCO Foundation. In 2018, FAUSA was granted tax-exempt 501(c)(3) status to better enable our members and other supporters to donate to our causes.

2021 FAUSA Annual Grant
Recipient: Lamp for Haiti
Lamp for Haiti is a nonprofit, nonsectarian, apolitical organization dedicated to providing health care and humanitarian aid to improve the lives of some of the most marginalized people in Haiti, among the poorest in the Western Hemisphere. We deliver quality medical care to the community of Cité Soleil, a slum on the outskirts of Port-au- Prince. Our committed staff has weathered hurricanes, earthquakes, civil unrest, and political turmoil to provide life-saving medical care to more than 15,000 patients a year. Many Haitians live on 50 cents a day and can only dream of regular visits to the doctor, leaving many to suffer and die from preventable and treatable diseases. Lamp founder, Dr. James Morgan, knew that a brighter future and tremendous human potential could be unlocked with improved health. Being selected as FAUSA's Annual Grant recipient, the $3,000.00 will assist 150 women with pre- and post-natal care.
