Our Story

Across the world, people think of Silicon Valley as a hub for wealth and innovation. Yet, in the shadows of tech giants are hard working people struggling to make ends meet and take care of their families. The South Bay Latino Giving Circle, headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley, aims to restore balance by putting wealth and opportunity back into the Latinx community.

This multigenerational group of leaders know what it’s like to live in a community where tech and corporations have outsized power. That’s why they invest in the real issues facing their neighbors- access to opportunity, humane immigration policy, and engaging everyday folks to vote and take action.

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.
