Hispanics in Philanthropy
Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) works to increase philanthropic investments in Latino communities, increase the participation of Latinos in philanthropy and foster policy change through philanthropy to enhance equity and inclusiveness.
Through the Community Leadership Project, Hispanics in Philanthropy is providing six Latino-led and Latino-serving organizations with multi-year core operating support and capacity-building grants.
Region Served: San Joaquin Valley
Fresno, Kern, Kings, Madera, Merced, San Joaquin, Stanislaus and Tulare counties
Total Award: $400,000
Each grantee organization receives approximately $40,000 in support over two or three years. HIP held its first grantee convening in November 2010, and topics included organizational effectiveness and working with consultants. Hispanics in Philanthropy convenes its grantees twice per year to provide capacity-building training and technical assistance. Three grantee organizations have been primarily government funded to date, so HIP and its team of consultants are working with them to diversify their funding sources.
