The Latino Community Foundation (LCF) invests in emerging Latino-led organizations that have a tangible impact on the lives of youth and families in California. The organizations we fund are working to transform the communities, systems, and policies that impact the lives of Latinos across the state.

Why do we invest in Latino-led organizations across California?

• We value the deep roots and authentic relationships these organizations share with their communities.

• We strongly believe that these organizations are best suited to address the economic, social, and physical conditions affecting community members.

• These organizations serve as trusted anchors that strengthen community organizing and build the political power necessary for long-term systemic changes that can lead to equity.

• These organizations serve as a pipeline for leadership development opportunities for emerging Latino leaders.

Below you will find a list of nonprofit organizations that are current and past grantees.
