Donating to the LCFC Grantmaking Funds allows LCFC to direct funding to the organizations that need it most.
Young Latino Philanthropists (YLP) Young Latino Philanthropists (YLP) was started by a group of visionaries under 35 years old who wanted to make a difference in the Latino community by collectively pooling financial resources. Using the “giving circle” model, these young visionaries seeks to fund innovation and forward thinkers whose project ideas encompass the values of family, empowerment and cultural inclusiveness to build strong communities.

You can help LCFC create a longterm giving strategy for Latinos in the state of Colorado by donating directly to the LCFC Endowment Fund.
