The Latino Engagement and Achievement Fund has been established at the Community Foundation for Northern Virginia to support and promote the success of and civic engagement by the Latino community in our region, in our country, and in our democracy.

Inspired by a 2015 Aspen Institute Latinos & Society Program report entitled “Unlocking Latino Civic Potential: 2016 and Beyond,” two visionary Northern Virginia leaders, Paty Funegra and Diana Katz, formed this committee advised fund at the Community Foundation to create a source of strategic, permanent funding that will strengthen and encourage the Latino community, both now and into the future.

Our launch event will feature remarks by Javier Palomarez, President and CEO of the U.S. Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and Abigail Golden-Vazquez, Executive Director of the Aspen Institute Latinos & Society Program.
