WHY THE FOUNDATION IS IMPORTANT
The work of the Kenred Dorsett Foundation is important to us and should be important to you. Expanding a greater knowledge of law, securities, investments and an awareness of culture and art, will help a new generation of global citizens meet the challenges of today and tomorrow. Helping those who do not have the financial means to pursue studies in any of these areas at tertiary education level strengthens families, communities and nations.
We are passionate about our shared home, the planet. We are all guardians and caretakers of earth. If we do our duty and take care of her, she will continue to provide for us. Advancing greater awareness of Climate Change and Environmental issues that impact the survivability of the planet and her inhabitants is a critical part of what we do. Small under-developed and developing nations are the most vulnerable. Change will only result from a genuine and sustained collective effort.

HOW THE FOUNDATION HELPS
The Kenred Dorsett Educational Scholarship Foundation and the Kenred Dorsett Foundation, Inc are non profit organizations in The Bahamas and the United States of America, respectively. Both believe that education is a critical factor in nation building and the development of peaceful and prosperous societies. The Foundations invest in Scholarships and programmes that provide Bahamians access to tertiary education, nationally and internationally.
Through partnerships with like minded individuals, families, businesses and donors, we are able to carry out our work. We encourage purpose driven living and purpose gifting. We offer tertiary scholarships to qualified applicants for study internationally, at the undergraduate or graduate level, and nationally at The University of The Bahamas and Southern College. Our scholarship recipients pursue degrees in areas that are key to national development and fill existing skills or labour gaps in the Commonwealth of The Bahamas.

WHAT THE FOUNDATION DOES AND IT'S VISION FOR THE FUTURE
Initially we were called NSB Educational Scholarship Foundation and we focused on the provision of training in Securities in mid-1990s. In 2002, the name was changed to Kenred Dorsett Educational Scholarship Foundation and the focus was broadened to include the award of partial scholarships. The Foundations will continue to grow and endeavour to help more people.
Helping to build lives and country through empowering people with the tool of higher education is essential to sustainability and prosperity. We must and will do our part and invite you to work with us.
