About Ayiti Community Trust
The Ayiti Community Trust (ACT) is the country’s first endowed fund, building on Haiti’s assets and driven by Haitians’ local needs while providing resources for sustainable solutions. ACT is registered in Haiti and operates as a grant-making community foundation. The fund will provide sustainable support to Haitian organizations in Haiti within three interconnected pillars: environment, civic education, and entrepreneurship. Registered as 501(c)3 organization in the US, ACT has been incubated by The Miami Foundation, the largest community foundation serving Miami for more than 50 years.
Our youth have unfortunately become overwhelmed, disarmed, and waiting for an opportunity to leave Haiti. One has the impression that most of them no longer have a sense of civic responsibility. But it is this sense of duty that inspires belonging and the desire to fight for one’s country and life.
