The Quixote Center is a multi-issue social justice organization that was founded in 1977. It works alongside partner organizations to bring about lasting systemic change. The Center stands in solidarity and friendship with those who seek to improve the lives of the very poor. It provides guidance, technical assistance, and funding to support the work of these groups and allow their movements and programs to mature. To accomplish this, it relies on the support of likeminded people who recognize the need for structural changes in an increasingly unequal global society. As the Center looks to the future, it remains committed to developing sustainable programs and social enterprises that address the needs of the very poor. Its current focus is on development work with international partners in Haiti and Nicaragua.
A 2016 grant from the Cultures of Resistance Network supported the Quixote Center’s work on reforestation in Haiti. The grant funded the planting of 1,000 trees.
