Our scholars are in need of your support
Monday, May 4, 2020
At this time, our scholars are struggling with paying rent, food insecurity, and internet access. Many of our scholars have indicated they have lost their part time or college-based jobs. Additionally, many of our Latinx students have returned home and are trying to support their family members. Some scholars have lost their summer internships or are having a hard time securing one.
It is too early to know the final impact the COVID-19 pandemic will have on our scholarship recipients. The Board of Directors of the Hispanic Foundation of Silicon Valley is providing a 1:1 match up to $4,500 on #GivingTuesdayNow. Whether it be a big or small donation, collectively, we have an opportunity to raise $9,000 on Tuesday, May 5th.
Our goal is to provide as many scholars in need of some financial relief with a $200 gift. We ask that you join our efforts as we continue to support our Latinos in Technology Scholarship Recipients.
To donate click here, or send a text message to 71777 with the words LatinxGive and follow the instructions.
The work to support our scholars to and through college is essential now more than ever!
