Organization description:
HASER is an acronym for “Haciendo Acciones Socio-Ecológicas Resilientes” (Making Social-Ecological Actions Resilient). Our mission is to stimulate quality and equity of life through local grassroots actions. We are the first nonprofit organization in Puerto Rico whose main goal is to offer groups fiscal sponsorship and administration, financial and strategic development support. We started HASER because we saw that many grassroots groups offered critical services but had little or no support behind the scenes, which made it difficult for them to acquire local and federal tax exemption.
