The Latina Giving Circle of San Diego brings together a community of San Diego’s Latinas who want to uplift, celebrate and share the philanthropic traditions and values of the Latino community.
OUR MISSION is to ignite the power of the Latina connection through giving, leadership, service and community.
We believe that Latinas are important to the success of our region; we believe in the power of collective giving; and we believe that creating an inclusive network of wise, generous, and connected Latinas will create positive change for all in San Diego County.
Through all of its work the Latina Giving Circle aims to have an impact in three core areas:
Announcing LGC's first two grant recipients for its 2015 inaugural grant round:
Barrio Logan College Institute and Building Skills Partnership
These two organizations will each receive $5,000 in support of their great programs. Over the course of the year, you will hear more about these organizations and others we got to know over the process as we share their great work! In the meantime, here is a little more about our finalists.
About the LGC grantround - Since its inception, 70 men women and organizations, inspired by the mission of the Latina Giving Circle, came together and collectively raised over $20,000 to invest in the issues that matter to us most. In June of 2015, The Latina Giving Circle released its first ever request for proposals. This grant round sought to support organizations working to positively impact career and leadership development of women and girls in San Diego. Eighteen exceptional organizations submitted proposals representing innovative and impactful work from across the region. Over the course of the following months, the Latina Giving Circle Grants Committee carefully reviewed proposals, identified and visited eleven organizations and worked to narrow the field to five outstanding applicants. Finally, the five organizations were put to a full member vote and Barrio Logan College Institute and Building Skills Partnership were selected as the finalist grantees. Look for forthcoming details about our grants celebration to honor our grantees and members who made this possible.
