ABOUT LATINO COMMUNITY FOUNDATION
“We cannot seek achievement for ourselves and forget about progress and prosperity for our community … Our ambitions must be broad enough to include the aspirations and needs of others, for their sakes and for our own.” - César Chávez
The Latino Community Foundation of Colorado believes that the rich and varied identities of Latinos contribute to the diversity and culture of our state. We are committed to creating inclusive, thriving communities rooted in equity so that all members of our community have the opportunity to reach their fullest potential. We view our work through a cultural lens that builds understanding with the community at large and helps shape the story of the Latino experience in our varied experiences and identities.
One of the cornerstones of our work is to inspire giving and invite individuals to experience the transformative power of philanthropy. Extending our impact depends on cultivating a new generation of philanthropists who are committed to investing in social change through giving and volunteerism. We are committed to culturally relevant and family centered philanthropy where all are encouraged to participate.
Strong Latino organizations are essential to strong Latino communities. Through grantmaking, special projects and initiatives, we help build the organizational capacities of Latino led and serving organizations so that they can achieve their missions. Our investments are responsive, relevant and shape the long-term impact of organizations. They further cultivate leaders who can impart social change through their deep commitment to transforming our communities.
