Transforming Philanthropic Practice
Curated and culturally responsive services for donors, investors and financial intermediaries to mobilize funding for and partnership with Latine communities.
HIP’s goal for Transforming Philanthropic Practice is to act as an intermediary and trusted advisor about resources allocated to Latine-focused initiatives. By working at the intersections where the goals of funders, investors, and Latine communities align, we are collectively in a stronger position to build the authentic power of philanthropy and significantly shift financial and other resources to address the scale and impacts of historic under-funding in Latine communities.
HIP holds deep knowledge and long-term partnerships with Latine-led and serving organizations across the social sector in both the US and Latin America. Our extensive network includes high impact nonprofit organizations; C-Suite level and mid-career Latine professionals working in the philanthropic and social services sector; as well as Latine researchers, journalists, and policy experts. Our role in the sector—and our expertise on issues impacting Latine and Latin American communities—puts HIP in the unique position of being both a philanthropic peer and an advocate for our communities.
HIP’s philanthropic advisory services leverage this unique intersection, providing curated and culturally responsive services to a spectrum of donors, investors and financial intermediaries to support them on their journeys to fulfill our sector’s promises to advance racial equity and opportunity.
Our objectives are inclusive of our entire community of funders, grantee partners, and allies, acknowledging that the impact of any philanthropic advisory experience depends on both a customized service relationship with the donor/investor and on a network of frontline organizations that have the skills and resources needed to realize their missions.
Through our Transforming Philanthropic Practice services, we aim to
– guide and support donors of all types in their learning journeys to more significantly fund and partner with Latine and Latin American communities,
– evolve diverse and innovative practices, tools, and vehicles to increase informed giving, and
– build, organize, and amplify a body of knowledge about Latine philanthropy, both giving led by – and in support of – Latine, to document the Latine role in the sector and amplify critical lessons and opportunities.
