In order to help Latino agencies provide the best possible community services, the Hispanic Federation offers technical assistance to its member network of nonprofits. Services focus on strengthening the infrastructures of nonprofits – the board, personnel, fundraising, program development and finances of a member agency. Services are provided through training, individual consultation, workshops and scholarships.
HF's technical assistance initiatives also include a grant writing service called the Hispanic Enterprises Launching Program (HELP), the Individual Donor Development (IDD) program, which trains agency Board and staff in developing a fundraising plan that targets individuals, and the Hispanic Leadership Institute (HLI), which expands the management skills of current and future member agency leaders.
As one of six Latino grant makers in the country, the Hispanic Federation provides general operating support grants that fund the “nuts and bolts” of its non-profit member agencies. Unlike the usual request for proposal process, the Federation listens to the individual needs of its member agencies and supports crucial capacity-building projects that might otherwise go unfunded. Since 1993, the Federation has awarded over $10 million in grants.
