Who We Are

In 2018, a group of North Carolina funders engaged in a planning process which established local control of the Funders’ Collaborative which had previously operated under the umbrella of Hispanics in Philanthropy. This North Carolina-directed Funding Collaborative involves both funders and members of North Carolina Latinx communities. Building upon the good work that has happened in our state over the last decade to build the capacity of Latinx-led organizations, this next evolution engages participatory grantmaking as a vehicle for building individual and collective power. Given that no one understands better the current pressures and opportunities for action than the people on the front lines, participatory grantmaking shifts decision-making power by creating infrastructure that explicitly centers the perspectives and wisdom of the Latinx community.
