The Progreso Latino Fund

Join Us!

Progress for Latinos in Greater New Haven requires work on many fronts. The Progreso Latino Fund brings together and engages Latinos and non-Latinos alike, providing a vehicle for conversations about how the issues impact Latinos. The Fund also provides grants, scholarship money to high school students and sponsors summer reading programs for younger children. 

The Goal

With your help, the Progreso Latino Fund can move much faster. It has the vision… to harness the philanthropic potential of the Latino community and its friends in a single fund, the Progreso Latino Fund ... and thereby create a powerful force for positive change in Greater New Haven.Learn more about PLF

A New Opportunity for Giving

The Progreso Latino Fund (PLF) is pleased to announce that we are partnering with the Puerto Rico Gift of Life campaign to provide solar-electric renewable energy to one of the island’s community health facilities. To meet the goal of fully funding electricity for a health care center, PLF will match gifts to this effort up to a max total of $15,000. Your gift ensures that healthcare on the island will not be decimated by future storms and residents of the island will not die for lack of medical care. You can make your gift in honor or in memory if you choose. Please specify on the form below and let us know who should receive notice of your thoughtful generosity.
