About the Latino Community Fund

The Latino Community Fund of Washington invests in the Latino community to cultivate new leaders, support effective nonprofit organizations, and improve the quality of life for all Washingtonians.

Formed in 2006 by a group of Washington State residents of Hispanic/Latino heritage in order to address the growing needs of the Latino community. The Latino Community Fund's approach is to capitalize on the Latino community's best resource, it's people, in order to identify, share and advocate for successful culturally relevant and linguistically appropriate organizations, programs and practices.

 

State of Latinos

FACT: Of the billions of dollars distributed each year by philanthropic institutions,  only 1.3% of the money is invested in the Latino community. (Foundation  Center,  2006).

 

Communities Served

Over the past seven years the  Latino Community Fund has invested over $80,000 in Latino-led, Latino accountable non-profits that are results driven, culturally competent, language appropriate and evaluated practices that can be shared among our communities.
