Build A Park Capital Campaign Drive
Studies show that much of our identity who we are and how we see and feel about
ourselves is tied to our environment and immediate surroundings. Simply put, our
value/perception of ourselves is directly tied to the state and condition of the areas where we live.
And if the look of our environment suggests that we are of no value, the likelihood that we will see
value in ourselves and be motivated to do better is drastically reduced. This is the reality of so many who
live in our urban communities.That is why it is our belief that, in the communities we serve, the
process of transforming minds and lives will first begin with transforming environments and immediate
With this in mind, The B-A-P Foundation is embarking on a major fundraising campaign that will allow us to begin the process of investing in our people and their communities. This initial Impacting Lives Today for a Better Tomorrow Capital Campaign Drive will fund the much needed expansion and transformation of the Rock Crusher, C. I. Gibson (Chippingham), and the Steve “Bulla” Pinder (Christie) Park projects in order to improve programs for youth development, healthy living, and community services. Initial construction is expected to start in the fall of 2020, with completion expected by the spring of 2021 barring any unexpected disasters. The B-A-P Foundation would like to partner with the Government of the Bahamas on these park projects by raising $600K as a commitment to making sure that they are not just renovated, but that they are transformed.
