Who we are
The Linden Fund is an umbrella organization that mobilizes the overseas diaspora and resident Linden community in the economic and social redevelopment of the town of Linden, Guyana. Its mission is to help play a meaningful role in the rebirth of a sustainable Linden, with particular focus on education, health and diversification of the town’s economic base. The Linden Community includes the current and diaspora residents and friends of the town of Linden, Guyana.
Currently, three entities comprise the Linden Fund: the Linden Fund USA; the Linden Fund Canada; and the Linden Fund Guyana. These groups share the common goal of Linden redevelopment but each group will have an independent role in complying with their respective country’s charitable and other requirements.

There are four state chapters of the Linden Fund USA , which plan and execute programs on the state level as well as assist in recruiting members to the organization. There are a minimum of four officers of each State Chapter, consisting of a Chairperson, Vice-Chairperson, Secretary and Treasurer. The Chairperson of each State Chapter becomes a Director on the LFU Board of Directors. This allows for an efficient, 2-way flow of communication between the State Chapters and the Board.
