PHILANTHROPY

CALL TO ACTION

LATINO FUTURES is partnering with the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy at John F. Kennedy University in Pleasant Hill, CA. This project will create a philanthropic framework to increase Latino college/university graduation rates to match those of non-Latino populations with the highest rates in the nation. To achieve this, there will be a call-to-action for America's philanthropic institutions

to collaborate and radically transform their giving and substantially fund Latino-led/serving non-profit organizations.

 

There will be specific quantitative measures for philanthropic investment nation wide. LATINO FUTURES and the Sanford Institute of Philanthropy are building an anchor committee and an advisory group of philanthropy experts to convene and advance this project.
