Hispanics in Philanthropy

Margarita Zavala, First Lady of Mexico, keynoted the Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) 25th anniversary on May 4, 2008 and helped HIP launch a new initiative called “Our Children/Nuestros Hijos.” Zavala noted that the campaign is being launched to address the tragedy of children traveling alone to the US to reconnect with their parents. Also on hand for the celebration was Gara LaMarche, president and CEO of The Atlantic Philanthropies. LaMarche praised Hispanics in Philanthropy saying the organization is not just a “conglomeration of those who have common interests and share a culture, but it is also an organization with a mission of social justice.” He lauded HIP for its demonstrated capacity to leverage philanthropic resources.
