A Call to Latinos for Latinos

Hispanics in PhilanthropyCan you imagine how the United States would change if Latinos were funded at a level commensurate with our talent, ideas, and opportunities?


We have a long way to go, but HIP and others in our familia of philanthropists, advocates, and leaders are doing the work through:

  1. HIP’s Funders’ Collaborative, which has granted nearly $40 million to more than 500 small Latino nonprofits in the US and Latin America.
  2. Making the case to Foundations for effective grantmaking with increased investments in our growing Hispanic communities.
  3. Building a network of donors that have the connections and tools to develop a stronger Latino civic center.
  4. Establishing benchmarks for philanthropic giving to urge others to give more and give better, showcasing Latinos as givers.

I would like to invite you to join us in ensuring we reach our end of the year goals to strengthen our Latino communities by contributing in one or more of the following ways:

  • $50 covers the monthly cost of  HIP’s webinars which educate our network of funders on the most pressing issues in our community, such as the most recent HIP Philanthropy Lab: The Anti-Immigrant Wave and a Closer Look at Alabama’s HB56.
  • $100 allows a small nonprofit to build its technology and fundraising capacity through the building of a donor database.
  • $250 allows HIP to cover the commuting expenses of our talented and devoted HIP Fellow in San Francisco for three months.
  • $500 provides interpretation services at a two day Grantee Convening which provides vital training and support to our Latino nonprofit leaders working on the frontlines of our communities.
  • $1,000 allows a small Latino Nonprofit to build its technology capacity through the purchase of a new computer.
  • $5,000 supports the leadership of our Latino organizations by providing a percentage of an Executive Director’s salary.

As you know, the Latino population is growing.  Despite these demographic changes, the Latino
nonprofit sector remains smaller than the sector overall, with only 1 organization for every 4,800 Latinos, compared to 1 organization for every 200 Americans in the overall nonprofit sector. In taking action on one or both of the above petitions, you are helping HIP change the statistics towards a more equitable reality.
