Hispanics in Philanthropy
Working with grantmakers to strengthen Latino communities
Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) is a transnational network of more than 500 grantmakers, donors and philanthropic leaders who share a commitment to improving resources for the Latino civil sector, encouraging the participation of Latinos in philanthropy and increasing the effectiveness of philanthropy through greater equity and diversity. HIP designs and manages wide-impact, multi-site philanthropic programs. Its flagship program is the award-winning Funders' Collaborative for Strong Latino Communities, which works to build the capacity of U.S. Latino nonprofit organizations to become more effective advocates for their constituencies and the greater Latino community. HIP, with a staff of 18, has national headquarters in San Francisco, regional offices in Miami, Mexico City and New York, and staff and consultants located in several states and the District of Columbia.
HIP's mission is to strengthen Latino communities by increasing resources for the Latino and Latin American civil sector; by increasing Latino participation and leadership throughout the field of philanthropy; and to foster policy change to enhance equity and inclusiveness.
