Esperanza was founded in 1987 with the dream of creating a place where people working for peace and justice could come together across our differences to share our visions, our resources, and our hope for a better world.
While the work for social, environmental, and economic justice calls for protests, press conferences, and public speeches in front of City Hall, it also requires music, poetry, painting, theater, and conversations that ground us in our culture and history and inspire our movement forward.
We encourage you to make a long-term commitment of support by becoming one of our monthly donors. Every donation helps ensure that Esperanza continues to thrive for generations to come.
On top of the “standard deduction,” you can also deduct up to $300 in monetary donations to nonprofits on your 2020 tax return – a new rule to encourage giving during the COVID pandemic.
