If you are unable to travel to Salt Cay, please take a moment on our website pages “Salt Cay Today” for an idea of the fragile history of this small island, and follow our progress on “Salt Cay Government House Project”.

The small population living on Salt Cay recognizes the importance of the history that surrounds them. The TCP Foundation applauds this tiny community for their many hours of selfless volunteer labour to make the island the charming destination that it remains today. The TCPF desires to put a larger voice on this undertaking and generate some support from further resources to keep this national treasure alive.

  • Projects to be undertaken in the Salt Cay historic district include:
  • Restoration of Government House
  • Restore a typical salt raker home
  • Restoring a Salt Pond to produce salt
  • Plaques for all historic buildings
  • Donation wall plaque with all donator names enscribed


Donations, large or small are welcome.

The foundation target is $650,000. All donations made to the Turks & Caicos Preservation Foundation will go directly to pay for the restoration work without deductions of any kind. Every donation will be acknowledged permanently on a panel at Government House.

Not all donations are monetary.If you have a skill such as marketing or carpentry and you are willing to help we will recognize your service.


Happy Birthday Ma Dookie
