The America’s Future in the Balance: Persistent Underfunding of Latino Communities across the Americas

June 18, 2012 // 3:30pm5:30pm

What is the role of philanthropy in fostering economic development in Latino communities on both sides of the border? Why is only 5% of US giving targeting Latin America, and only 2% U.S. Latino communities? What policies and mechanisms could create lasting, system-wide change for Latino communities?  The Wilson Center, Hispanics in Philanthropy, the Washington Office on Latin America, and the Hispanic Association on Corporate Responsibility hosted a panel discussion to address these questions.


6th Floor, Woodrow Wilson Center
Event Speakers List: 
  • President, Hispanics in Philanthropy
  • Andrew Selee // Executive Vice President and Senior Advisor to the Mexico Institute
