Hurricane Matthew Update

On October 4th, 2016 Hurricane Matthew made landfall in Haiti. The storm ravaged much of the southwestern peninsula with winds of over 145 mph. Roads were cut off, power lines downed, roofs torn from most schools and homes, widespread agricultural and livestock losses, and over 1,000 people were killed in this monster storm.

There is much work to be done. A number of very effective, locally led response and relief efforts have been underway in the immediate aftermath.

Many people are asking how they can help. For the rest of October all donations through this page will be directed to the first responders we know best, our Haitian partners, The St. Luke Foundation for Haiti.

Our hearts go out to Haiti in this, her latest challenge, and we send gratitude and respect to all the first responders working in partnership with these devastated communities to rebuild.

If you prefer that your donation this month not be directed to hurricane relief please email us

Let’s Keep Going

On January 12, 2010 an earthquake devastated Haiti. Hundreds of thousands were killed and cities were leveled. The destruction was unimaginable. Within days we were on the ground and pledged our support to help rebuild, however long it took.

Today, years later, we’re proud to say we’ve kept that promise. We now have two thriving institutions – The Academy for Peace and Justice and Artists Institute – that are growing and empowering a new generation of Haitian leaders. These young people will continue to help Haiti rebuild to become stronger than ever before.

We remain convinced of the need for long term commitment in order to create true change. It is an honor to work with our many partners in Haiti and abroad to create the opportunities needed to rebuild. Most importantly, we thank you for making all this possible. We look forward to many years of progress ahead and to sharing updates every step of the way.


Artists for Peace and Justice is proud to follow a 100% policy: every single penny donated by the general public goes directly to our programs in Haiti.

Our operational budget is generously covered thanks to separate private donations and revenue so that every dollar you give helps people in need. Learn more about our financials here.
