All donations received during September will go to Hurricane Dorian relief in the Bahamas.
WHAT: The Yellow Dog Community and Conservation Foundation (YDCCF) and Yellow Dog have established a fund to raise money for our Bahamian fly fishing “family” – the guides, lodge employees, staff and of course the families that have been devastated by Hurricane Dorian.
WHY: We realize that there will be numerous, large-scale relief and aid efforts that will target the Bahamas in the weeks and months ahead, and that is a good thing. Our goal, however, is to help those in the fly fishing industry – the guides, lodge employees and those that are directly linked to the fly fishing industry on Abaco and Grand Bahama. Lodges can be rebuilt and insurance can pay out. For the individuals that are affected however – by loss of property, possessions and income – we want to make a direct difference.
WHEN: All funds raised through the YDCCF Hurricane Relief Fund will be distributed directly to those that need help. We plan to deliver funds on both Grand Bahama and Abaco: placing funds directly into the hands of those that need it most by working with our network of lodges and local outfitters. This is the most direct way to ensure that these resources are delivered directly to the people that need the most help.
WHO: Yellow Dog and YDCCF are proud to partner with any businesses or entities in the fishing world to raise as much as possible and have the biggest impact. We look forward to partnering with others from throughout the world of fly fishing to spread the word and maximize donations.

“I was drawn to YDCCF due to its focus on conserving and preserving endangered fisheries, but most importantly, by its emphasis on the communities involved in those fisheries. Local involvement and accountability only adds to the potential impact that can be made.”
Thank you for supporting YDCCF throughout the year. We couldn't do it without you.
