The Hispanic 100 is committed to creating a legacy in our community. Through the Hispanic 100 Endowment Fund, our goal is to empower charitable organizations that support our mission to continue their good work. We review each application on the basis of the quality of the submission and its alignment with the Hispanic 100’s vision – to serve as a catalyst for increased participation for Hispanic women in employment, procurement, and social services.
