The Bay Area Men’s Latino Giving Circle is a circle of men rooted in mentorship, accountability, and action. The San Francisco Men’s and East Bay Men’s circles merged to focus on investing in the support and development of Latino young men. This group loves to connect via Happy Hours and they show up for each other– personally and professionally. This circle believes in the power of mentorship, alongside flexible grantmaking, they have hosted two Youth Leadership Conferences where they share their personal experiences with machismo, overcoming obstacles by leaning on their culture, and creating a path for professional growth.
They focus on growing their own leadership by serving on organizational boards and acting as professional mentors to one another.

About the Latino Giving Circle Network
The Latino Giving Circle Network is the largest network of Latinx philanthropists in the country. From Baby Boomers to Millennials, CEOs to emerging professionals, immigrants to US-born, Latinos and non-Latinos, we are part of a united movement inspired by the power of giving and civic engagement. The funding from these Giving Circles supports grassroots Latinx-led nonprofits, working on the frontlines with Latinx youth and families. These emerging community-rooted organizations are often overlooked by traditional philanthropy. We exist to change that. Learn more about the Network here.
