Who We Are
We are a group of people dedicating time, talent, and treasure to building a sustainable Ayiti.
We are Haitians living in Ayiti and in the diaspora, and friends of Ayiti who believe that, together, we can transform and correct the misrepresentation of Haitians and Ayiti. Motivated and unified by our belief in Ayiti's strengths, we work to supplant relief-driven development with long-term investment in Ayiti's human and social capital.
We Are Building an Endowment
An endowment is a gift that keeps giving in perpetuity. It is a mechanism for Haitians and friends of Ayiti across the globe to shape a legacy of long-term support to Ayiti's development. Contributions to the endowment produce ongoing yields that are used to make grants to Haitian-led innovations.
Friends contribute to the endowment through individual, foundation, and corporate giving, as well as participation in fundraising events of ACT.
ACT invests these funds through the Miami Foundation and uses a portion of the funds to support the operations of ACT.
The yields from the investments are used to make grants to Haitian-led organizations through a competitive grant-making process.
