In response to the effects of COVID-19, the Latina Giving Circle is launching an emergency grant cycle for this critical moment. With our collective donations, we will support regional relief funds that are providing cash payments to families impacted by COVID-19 with a specific focus on workers in the informal economy, undocumented families, and asylum seekers.
The Latina Giving Circle (LGC) is proud to facilitate this collective gift on behalf of our membership. We will be granting out at least $17,000 to organizations that are providing direct aid to individuals impacted by COVID-19.
Our members have suggested incredible organizations providing direct assistance to impacted populations. Our Leadership Council has reviewed the suggested organizations and identified six prospective grantees that most align with our stated goal of supporting relief funds that specifically prioritize our undocumented and/or immigrant community.
The two funds that receive the highest amount of LGC member votes will receive grants of $5,500 each. The remaining funds will each receive grants of $1,500 each. This voting process is only open to active Latina Giving Circle members who have contributed towards this grant cycle.
