EY donates $200,000 for Dorian relief effort

Professional-services firm EY has announced a $200,000 donation to Hurricane Dorian relief efforts in the Bahamas.

The leadership of the EY region of the Bahamas, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands and Cayman Islands will donate $100,000, with EY Americas matching the donation, to The Bahamas National Emergency Management Authority.

Dan Scott, regional managing partner with EY, said: “This is an extraordinarily difficult time for the Bahamas and, by extension, all of the countries that make up a part of this region, so it is imperative that we come together as one to help the Bahamas and its people begin to rebuild.

“Our thoughts are with those who have lost loved ones, those who lost everything and are displaced by the storm. We have a deep culture of caring at EY and we hope our donation can provide important assistance and support to begin the road to recovery.”

Michele Thompson, country managing partner for EY Bahamas, said: “This storm has had an immense impact on our people, including their friends and families, and we're absolutely devastated by what our community is experiencing.

“We want to be a part of the rebuilding and recovery from Hurricane Dorian, and this donation will help with these efforts. We all have one common goal – to help those in need and rebuild our community. The Bahamian community is incredibly important to EY and we are proud to help in any way we can.”
