Americans for a Vibrant Palestinian Economy is an Illinois 501(c)(3) * and was founded on the simple premise that Positive Investment in Palestine breeds hope for a better future for Palestinians through tangible economic opportunity. Hope breeds change for the betterment of Palestinian society, and a better relationship with the rest of the world. Our nonprofit organization encourages lasting economic relationships between Americans and Palestinians. When impediments on the ground are lifted, these lasting business relationships will support a vibrant Palestinian economy and, in the meantime, every business transaction and job created plants another seed of hope that keeps Palestinians constructively engaged towards a future of freedom and economic independence.
