The Louise Cooper Memorial Scholarship Fund

This Fund assists deserving students from low income families to receive tertiary education. The Fund was inspired by my personal upbringing and named in honor of my dear mother. Over the past four (4) years, the Fund has assisted nine (9) Exumians with a total of $100,000 to attend The University of The Bahamas, Bahamas Technical Vocational Institute, and universities abroad.

Bahamas Empowerment Fund

Exuma is receiving significant growth mainly through foreign direct investments. In order to encourage harmonious, socio-economic balance. Bahamas Empowerment Fund was formed as a venture capital vehicle to assist small and medium sized businesses. Over the past 24 months, I have personally invested more than $75,000 for technical support to 25 entrepreneurs for business planning and to fund two (2) home-based businesses. Access to funding is a major impediment to locals seizing the opportunities that spin off from the island’s economic growth.
