40 Anniversary

Celebrating 40 years of Building, Funding, & Fueling Latinx Power

Attend our

Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) is proudly approaching and reflecting on our 40 years of building, funding, and fueling Latinx power. Our year-long anniversary celebration, kicked off in Miami in 2022, will culminate in our 2023 Leadership Conference, bringing HIP back to its Bay Area roots.

HIP’s annual conference sparks dialogue on how to better invest in Latinx communities by bringing together key partners—from trustees and foundation staff to corporate and nonprofit leaders—to engage in learning and discussion through panels, plenaries and workshops. Our content informs funders of the evolving needs and priorities of Latinx communities, better equipping them to develop responsive funding strategies.
