Progreso Latino Fund

Support PLF

Progress for Latines in Greater New Haven requires work on many fronts. The Progreso Latino Fund brings together and engages Latines and non-Latines alike, providing a vehicle for conversations about how the issues impact Latines.

20th Anniversary Match Campaign

For 20 years, the Progreso Latino Fund has inspired Latine philanthropy in our community, fostering gifts of talent, time, and financial resources. In addition, the Fund has brought people together to promote and support the Latine culture, celebrate Connecticut Latine leaders, advance education through scholarships and training, and provide charitable grants to programs and services for and with the Latine community.

To celebrate 20 years, the Fund is distributing an unprecedented $100,000 in grants over two years to continue positively impacting the most urgent issues facing Latines today. To grow the Fund, the advisory committee is introducing the 20th Anniversary $20,000 Match Campaign.

The Community Foundation will match your gift to the Progreso Latino Fund dollar-for-dollar up to $2,000.

Please consider a gift to the 20th Anniversary $20,000 Match Campaign so the mission of the Progreso Latino Fund lives in perpetuity. Your generosity will be acknowledged at the 20th Anniversary’s culminating reception in November 2023.

We cannot wait for you to join us! Thank you for inspiring, expanding and elevating Latine philanthropy in our community.

Tara Davila and Yari Ijeh, co-chairs of the Advisory Committee
