History of the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation
In 1993, Cesar's family and friends established the Cesar E. Chavez Foundation to educate people about the life and work of this great American civil rights leader, and to inspire individuals and communities to carry on his values and timeless vision for a better world.
Since its inception, the Foundation has grown from a start-up organization to one that now has an annual budget of $2.5 million. In addition, the Foundation has increasingly been recognized as a national institution with an ecumenical vision and ambitious programmatic goals.
Today, from the fields of the Southwest to urban centers across the nation, Cesar's struggle for justice, equality, and civil rights and the work of the Foundation he inspired are resonating with Americans from diverse walks of life.
