What We Do

What is The Ayiti Community Trust?

The Ayiti Community Trust, is a 501(c)3 grant-making foundation building a permanent endowment to fund the best solutions to Haiti’s challenges.

The Ayiti Community Trust will use proceeds from this endowment to fund registered community organizations that have demonstrated or have the potential for significant social impact in Haiti. By identifying, vetting and investing in high-impact and high-potential organizations that can deliver results, we will measurably improve outcomes in our key focus areas of the environment, entrepreneurship, and civic engagement.
