Cosy Joseph, President



On behalf of the officers and members of the organization, I thank you for visiting our website and invite you to explore our Mission, History, Program Board Member and financial pages as well as our picture gallery.


Since its inception in 1999, the Gaskov Clergé Foundation (GCF) has focused its philanthropic operations on empowering individuals one life at a time. GCF has given over 500 US volunteers the opportunity to bring health care to over 20,000 underserved men, women and children in Haiti. Our volunteers have made many critical interventions for patients who would have otherwise lost their lives due to non-existent access to health care. Thus far, the medical missions have profoundly impacted the volunteers and patients' lives in ways that are indescribable. In addition, through the generosity of many, GCF now provides scholarships to over 150 children a year in Haiti, giving them an opportunity for a decent education and a brighter future.


My friends, the time has come for us to provide continuity of care for those we have been serving for over 14 years. In keeping with our vision to build a modern medical center near Les Cayes, Haiti, I am happy to inform you that we are on the home stretch to resume construction activities for the first phase of the Medical Center. As you know, this is a major milestone for both GCF and the people of Les Cayes. We are joining forces with Forward in Health to kick-off our 2014 construction capital campaign to help complete the construction of a brand new clinic in Fonfrède, near Les Cayes by July 2014.


If you are interested about becoming a corporate partner, your contributions will support GCF medical professionals so they can continue to provide much needed assistance to the Haitian people. Our 2014 capital funding campaign will afford us the much needed resources to achieve our goal to build the first phase of the medical center that will train and equip the Haitian medical professionals with the necessary equipment and tools to administer care to their own community.


GCF will hold several events in Florida, Pennsylvania, New York and Boston. Those events will provide the ideal forum for demonstrating your commitment to supporting your current consumers, while at the same time, providing you a variety of ways to help achieve both your philanthropic and business objectives. Named sponsorship opportunities for parts of the medical center are also available. We humbly ask that you give what you can – every dollar truly makes a difference. Ongoing donations are greatly appreciated in the form of annual and monthly pledges.


Our cause deserves your support and there are many opportunities for you to participate. Please feel free to inquire about additional opportunities that may not be mentioned. In reading and looking at the images on this website, let it not only allow you to consider helping, but let it propel you to take action. Thank you for your support!

Warmest Regards,

Cosy Clergé Joseph
GCF Chairman of the Board
