MISSION AND HISTORY
Hispanic Federation (HF) is the nation’s premier Latino nonprofit membership organization. Founded in 1990, HF seeks to support Hispanic families and strengthen Latino institutions through work in the areas of education, health, immigration, civic engagement, economic empowerment, & the environment.
To empower and advance the Hispanic community.
Who We Are
With offices in New York, Washington D.C., Connecticut, Florida, and Puerto Rico, as well as a nonprofit footprint throughout the East Coast, HF uplifts millions of Hispanic children, youth and families locally and nationally through three essential service pillars: membership services/grant making, advocacy and community programs.
Membership services fortify HF's grassroots nonprofits through capacity-building grants that support core operational needs, and graduate-level management classes, leadership development trainings, board recruitment and placement, executive fundraising workshops and other technical assistance seminars.
Advocacy services are focused on advancing the interests and aspirations of Latinos and their community-based organizations through coalition-building, policy research, public education, advocacy, voter mobilization and more.
Community assistance programs are designed to support and uplift children, youth and families through the provision of direct social services in the areas of education, immigration, health care, economic development and the environment.
Why We Are Different
The Hispanic Federation uses its deep bond with its network of 100 Latino grassroots nonprofits, close relationships with grasstops and grassroots stakeholders, and strong collaborations with foundations, media, elected officials, government and private sector partners to work deeply in communities, pursue systemic change and achieve large scale impact in its issue areas.
