Our work would not be possible without our partners.

Thanks to the generosity of our investors, in 2019 we awarded $180,000 to six local nonprofits working in our three impact areas.

Early childhood education

Todos Juntos Learning Center

Emerging Nonprofit / $10,000

This grant will help provide 12 hours of weekly culturally-appropriate literacy education for 50-60 children (ages 18 months to 4 years) for the nine-month school year. Focused on low-income immigrant families, Todos Juntos provides high-quality early childhood education at no cost to parents, for up to 4 years.

Avance Austin

Established Nonprofit/ $50,000

This award will significantly expand AVANCE-Austin’s 2-generation programming that has the potential to serve an additional 300 Hispanic children ages 0-3 and their parents with early learning/literacy and parental skills education in high poverty zip code areas in Central Texas.

Health and wellness

Vela Families

Emerging Nonprofit / $10,000

Through the expansion of VELA’s culturally adapted Curso de Autismo, 200 new Latino families will learn how to understand their child’s diagnosis, connect to therapies, navigate specialist visits, understand complex terminology, and access crucial support services to create the best future for their familia.

Catholic Charities Central Texas

Established Nonprofit/ $50,000

The grant from the Hispanic Impact Fund will support a new bilingual counselor, allowing Catholic Charities of Central Texas to provide 850 more sessions and eliminate their waitlist for mental health services in Spanish. Their counseling services provide over 4,000 counseling sessions annually, and 72% of their clients are Hispanic.

Job skills and entrepreneurship
