ACF logo - Hispanic Impact Fund

A giving network for those passionate about our Hispanic community.

We exist to support the economic security and advancement of Hispanic Central Texans, an essential priority for the future of our region. By leveraging the assets, resilience and strength of our Latino community, we’re investing in the potential of future leaders and entrepreneurs.

Impact areas:

  • EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION
  • HEALTH AND WELLNESS
  • JOB SKILLS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP
EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION

Less than half of low-income Hispanic children in Austin are kindergarten-ready. By focusing on the youngest population in our community, we can improve educational outcomes for years to come.

HEALTH AND WELLNESS

25% of working-age Hispanic adults have no primary healthcare provider, leaving Hispanic families one health crisis away from financial ruin. However, when armed with culturally competent information about healthy habits, Hispanics have significantly improved health outcomes.

JOB SKILLS AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP

Nearly 75% of Hispanics are in the paid labor force. However, having such a large part of the population confined to jobs with lower incomes reduces the economic growth potential of our community.

When Hispanics Rise, Austin Rises.
