“We are very excited to be able to operate as a public charity and explore the new fundraising opportunities open to us,” said Ines Lozano, founder and CEO of FlyingHigh4Haiti. “This change in our charity classification will allow us to grow our pool of donors, raise funds more efficiently, and implement new projects to support our mission of bringing education and opportunity to the children of Ile-a-Vache.”
