A Vision of a Robust Investment in Latinx Movement Building Across Rural Communities

As a Latinx-led and serving organization, Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) has confronted the immediate and long-term impacts of white supremacy, colonization, anti-immigrant rhetoric, COVID-19, and a diversity of attacks on our basic civic and civil rights across the Americas over the last four years (including January 6th). We have felt this impact at both the personal and professional level, and had to grapple with it both individually and organizationally. Though painful and complicated, these experiences pushed us to deepen and clarify our commitment to Power Building and Justice for Latinx and Latin American communities. Through intentional investments of time, energy, financial support, and shifting the philanthropic narrative around the impact of partnering with Latinx-led, equity-centered, tech-oriented leaders, organizations, and movements, HIP will co-create spaces of trust and solidarity across Latinx and other IBPOC communities with an emphasis on historically underserved, underrepresented, and underinvested rural communities. Over the next three years, we plan raise over $3,000,000 for grantmaking to organizations dedicated to movement building, racial justice, civic engagement, and policy advocacy essential to building power of Latinx communities.
