THE ROCKHOUSE FOUNDATION
The Rockhouse Foundation transforms the places where Jamaica’s children learn and supports the great people who teach them. Established in 2004, the Rockhouse Foundation has invested over US$6 million in transforming and modernizing seven local schools that were in desperate need of support, and completely renovated and expanded the Negril Community Library. We are committed to improving the Negril area’s learning infrastructure in order to empower the next generation. During the COVID pandemic, with children learning from home, the foundation pivoted and has been making weekly food distributions since March 2020, delivering over 200 tons of food and sustaining over 1000 people in need.
WHY SUPPORT US
All administrative and fundraising costs of the foundation are underwritten by Rockhouse Hotel, Skylark Negril Beach Resort, Miss Lily’s and their owners, so all donations go directly to the projects and programs. In Jamaica a dollar goes a long way – our projects would cost 10 times as much in the United States. We are on the ground directly contracting and providing oversight and management to all aspects of our projects and programs to ensure your funds and responsibly invested. The Rockhouse Foundation is an IRS approved New York 501(c)3 and a Jamaican registered charity. The foundation’s work directly impacts the lives of thousands of Negril area children and their families everyday.
