Helping Families
Like You
The Latino Family Fund is a respected, inclusive,
and active participant in Gilroy's philanthropic sector.
A recognized leader in Youth philanthropy and
grantmaking, Latino Family Fund is providing
generational empowerment to significantly impact
the Latino community.


In 2006, twelve families pooled their own money to establish a donor-advised fund with Gilroy Foundation, called the Latino Family Fund de Gilroy.

Since then, they have established their own mission and vision statements, along with a strategic plan for growth and development. Over the years, they reached out to increase their membership and planned fundraising events to increase their grantmaking Fund.

They have gifted more than $71,000 to local organizations serving the Latino community. They have increased their endowed donor-advised fund from $10,000 to over $230,000.

In 2013, they partnered with South Valley Middle School to support youth in cultivating their leadership, grantmaking, and fundraising skills through a Youth In Philanthropy (YIP) program. They now have YIP in all three of GUSD middle schools. The students have awarded more than $16,000 in grants. 

As part of its mission, the Latino Family Fund welcomes people of all races, religions, genders, sexual orientations, physical abilities, backgrounds, philosophies, etc. Our goal is to support all of these members of our community in their work.
