SXM DOET Project Registration and Funding Application Deadline Extended

~New Deadline is January 12 th , 2024~

The SXM DOET team would like to inform all community organizations that the project registration and funding application deadline has been extended until Friday January 12th, 2024. “Initially, we had a deadline of January 5th, however, due to the holidays and many key persons being on vacation, we decided to extend the deadline for an additional week.”
This year’s deadline is earlier than previous years due to the project management team wanting
to ensure that all registered projects and financial applications can be reviewed, adjusted (if need
be) and approved for the disbursement of funds to take place by February 2024. “We hope that
this adjustment will overall assist project coordinators better to ensure they are able to purchase
all materials in a timely manner,” the project management team mentioned. Although the
deadline has been extended by a week, this new deadline will be adhered to in order to reach the
above-mentioned goal.
Community organizations such as non-profits, schools, sports and social clubs, and churches, to
mention a few, can register their SXM DOET project(s) and apply for funding via Once registered, organizations can apply for up to $650 in funding towards
completing their project(s) during SXM DOET 2024. 
This year, SXM DOET is scheduled for March 15 th and 16 th , and marks the 10th year anniversary
of the largest volunteer initiative on Sint Maarten. It is executed by Be The Change Foundation
(BTC) and funded by the Oranje Fonds. It is the largest volunteer initiative in the Dutch
Kingdom whereby foundations, associations, schools, and other NGOs host various projects that
require the assistance of volunteers.

For the 2024 registration period, the project management team has added “Early DOETi” to
promote early registration. Early DOETi gives special SXM DOET branded goodies to the first
10 volunteers of the first 10 organizations that have fully registered their project before the
deadline. The volunteer coaches and the project management team have already reached out to
various organizations, however, if there are organizations in need of assistance, the team can be
contacted via email at in**********@gm***.com or phone: +1 (721) 581 6831. Interested
volunteers can sign up to registered community projects via the website: at
the end of January 2024.
