Hispanic 100 is committed to creating a legacy in our community. Through the Hispanic 100 Advised Fund, our goal is to empower charitable organizations that support our mission to continue their good work.
Past recipients of our endowment grant donations have included:
STAR Court is a program working to rehabilitate women on probation who have a history of prostitution, mental illness and drug addiction. Many of them never had a mother to teach them about proper hygiene and attire. Your monetary donations help support this program. If you prefer to donate small items that can be used as rewards, please bring them to the Annual Meeting. Suggestions are: a $5 gift certificate from Wendy's or McDonald's or basics such as shampoo, deodorant and soap.
ALPFA, a group which began as a support system for Latinos in finance and accounting, to which the Hispanic 100 donated $300 to be used toward a scholarship for a Latina pursuing a degree in finance or accounting.
Eastfield College received $675 to be used for scholarships for women pursuing studies in the College's English as a Second Language program.
Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School (YWLS) received a grant of $2,000 to help fund the school's YWLS math and science summer camp programs.
Las Comadres Para Las Americas, an Internet-based Latina network that builds connections and community with other Latinas, received a Hispanic 100 grant of $800 which will be used for Las Comadres' partnership with the Center for Politics and Governance to provide training for two Hispanic women through the Texas Public Policy and Campaign Training Program at the LBJ School of Public Affairs.
