Giving Circle

The Latina Giving Circle was formed in 2009 and empowers the Latino community through collective and strategic philanthropic efforts.

The Latina Giving Circle relies on its members' time, talent and treasure to support Arizona’s communities. Like other giving circles, the Latina Giving Circle allows individual donors to pool their resources to make a bigger impact on charitable causes of shared interest. The organization, which is part of the Latinos Unidos initiative at the Arizona Community Foundation, focuses on building a multimillion-dollar endowed fund to support Arizona communities, with special emphasis on Latino populations, indefinitely.

Influence. Affluence. Empowerment.

Historically, Latinos have contributed to the community through financial and in-kind support of our neighborhoods, family, places of worship and schools. However, Latinos are not adequately represented in organized philanthropic institutions and donor advised funds when compared to the increasing Latino population in Arizona.

Nationwide, by the year 2050, the Latino population will increase by 200 percent. While our population and needs are growing, less than 2 percent of all funding from U.S. foundations goes to Latino organizations. Nonprofit organizations serving the Latino community are in need of support, and Latinos are increasingly positioned to participate as substantial contributors to the nation’s social investment capital.
