About this grant
The project goal is to address the new and continued challenges facing immigrants throughout the Americas. The Hispanics in Philanthropy Migration and Forced Displacement Program accomplishes this through grantmaking, rapid COVID-19 response, funder engagement, capacity building and communications efforts. During the previous grant period, the grantee provided over $2 million in grants to nonprofits across the Americas, strengthened nonprofits and responded swiftly to COVID-19. During this grant period, the grantee will continue these activities and respond to the emerging needs of the Hispanic and Latinx community. Founded in 1981, Hispanics in Philanthropy is the leading philanthropic membership organization for grantmaking in Hispanic and Latino communities. The grantee works across the Americas to strengthen Latino leadership, equity and voice by facilitating greater philanthropic investments in Latino communities.
