**PHIP Irma and Harvey**
The Lone Palm Foundation is the charitable arm of Parrot Heads in Paradise (PHIP), Inc.
We are a 501(c)3 non-profit organization designed to further the commitment of Parrot Heads worldwide. We are "Parrot Heads helping Parrot Heads".
The foundation has been busy processing applications and issuing checks for Hurricane Harvey . The aftermath of Harvey is still unfolding and the reality of Irma is fast approaching.
To donate to the Parrot Head Emergency PHUND, visit http://lonepalmfoundation.org/donate/
Below are the guidelines and assistance application for those affected by natural disaster.
Parrot Head Emergency Phund Guidelines
The purpose of the Emergency Phund is to aid Parrot Heads with financial assistance during difficulties resulting from a natural disaster. The Phund is maintained by the Board of Directors on the Lone Palm Foundation and applications will be reviewed by this board. Assistance approval is based on Board review and availability of funds.
Please note, applications are limited to one application, per household, per natural disaster.
The following are eligibility requirements that must be met in order to receive consideration for funding:
- The application must be submitted by a Parrot Head who is a member, in good standing, in a PHIP registered club. Please provide your club’s point of contact to verify membership.
- Requests for funds must be as a result of a natural disaster: a natural event such as flood, earthquake, tornado or hurricane that causes great damage or loss of life.
- In order for the application to be considered complete, and ready for review, it must also provide your verification of need in the form of photos, references, or letters of support.
Please be as detailed as possible when completing your application. This will ensure The Lone Palm Foundation Board has all the information they need to review and make a decision on your application. Once your complete application and verification documents have been submitted, it will be reviewed in the order it was received. If the Lone Palm Foundation Board should need additional information, please be sure to provide this in a timely manner. Failure to provide the information in a timely manner could result in loss of consideration for funding.
Repayment and Donation
There is no requirement for repayment of the financial assistance provided through the Lone Palm Foundation Emergency Phund. We do encourage all Parrot Heads to help The Lone Palm Foundation continue its operations by making a donation once the crisis has passed. This donation will allow us to help many other Parrot Heads who find themselves in the same situation.
Fill out and submit the Lone Palm Foundation Emergency Fund Request application. You can do this by hand, using Adobe Reader DC or by an online service such as PDFfiller..
