The Central Valley Latino Giving Circle came together to reclaim a different vision for the Valley- one rooted in leadership, generosity, and pride. Headquartered in the greater Fresno area, this Giving Circle is now one of our largest in the network and harnesses the power, philanthropy, and civic action of Latinos. This Circle is filled with the movers and shakers of the Central Valley- members are leaders of community organizations, business owners and more. Many of the organizations they fund credit the Giving Circle as their first-ever philanthropic investment such as Armando at CCAT- an arts and cultural center with hubs in Fresno and Bakersfield. Despite the essential contributions of the Central Valley, While this region faces some of the highest disparities in opportunity, health, education, and equality in our state due to decades of disinvestment, the Giving Circle continues to provide essential contributions to the Central Valley.
