WHAT WE DO

Strong Latino organizations are essential to strong Latino communities. Through grantmaking, programs, and events, we help build the organizational capacities of Latino led and serving organizations so that they can achieve their mission. Our investments are responsive, relevant and shape the long-term impact of organizations.
