The Collective Corazón Powers Us All

At Hispanics in Philanthropy, our work is grounded in the understanding that donors, partners, and community organizations are all part of the collective corazón—collective heart.

Over the past five years, funders have trusted us to push past boundaries and reimagine what was possible. From ongoing pandemics, gun violence, recessions, natural disasters, to political instability, we have witnessed that these crises are not confined to a single community—or even a single continent. So we have dedicated ourselves to providing solutions that match this disproportionate impact.

Awards and Recognitions

What’s Next?

Our vision for 2023—and beyond—is to continue leveraging philanthropic resources to mobilize and amplify the power of our communities and reach our vision of a just future where our communities are thriving. HIP will be celebrating its 40th anniversary this year and implementing a new strategic plan.

40th Anniversary & the Annual Leadership Conference:

In 2023, HIP will be celebrating and reflecting on our 40 years of building, funding, and fueling Latine power. Our year-long anniversary celebration— which kicked off in Miami in 2022—will culminate in our 2023 Leadership Conference, bringing HIP back to its Bay Area roots.

HIP’s annual conference sparks dialogue on how to better invest in Latine communities by bringing together key partners—from trustees and foundation staff to corporate and nonprofit leaders—to engage in learning and discussion through panels, plenaries and workshops. Our content informs funders of the evolving needs and priorities of Latine communities, better equipping them to develop responsive funding strategies.

Strategic Planning:

We embarked on a strategic planning process to ensure HIP was well positioned to continue addressing the evolving philanthropic needs of Latine and communities across the Americas. HIP’s strategic planning task team includes staff, board and committee members, and consultants connected with partners, grantees and allies across the region to inform the strategic direction for the next 5 years.

We are excited to continue consulting with the field and share our plan in 2023.

Thank you
