September 13, 2019
Tiger Woods and Justin Timberlake have partnered to create the ONE Bahamas Fund to help the Bahamian people recover after Hurricane Dorian.
In addition to creating the fund, the celebrities have pledged to match the first $6 million given to make it $12 million to help support Hurricane Dorian relief efforts.
“As a strong believer in philanthropy and teamwork, I’m excited to partner with my friends @jtimberlake, #NEXUSLuxuryCollection, @rbc and @albanybahamas to establish the ONE Bahamas Fund in support of Hurricane Dorian relief, recovery and rebuilding efforts,” Woods said on Twitter.
The ONE Bahamas Fund will “support a wide range of immediate recovery needs and important long-term rebuilding initiatives required in the country … including a focus on shelter (temporary and low-cost housing), living necessities (clothing, food and communication devices), educational support (scholarships, transportation costs and supplies), community (aiding in the design and development of infrastructure needs), and seed funding for Bahamian businesses.”
