Keeping the Promise is a five-year campaign to raise $43 million to strengthen and expand the reach and scope of our high school college readiness program, annual scholarships and other college attainment efforts, and professional development programs, including internships and fellowships.

Our programs draw from a national group of young Latinos and provide the financial support, resources, and direct work experience on Capitol Hill to develop a pipeline of highly talented young Latino Leaders. 

You can help CHCI succeed in its mission in any of the following ways:

  1. Purchase a table at the CHCI 34th Annual Awards Gala. Invite your colleagues to a premier evening of networking and award-winning entertainment, while supporting CHCI’s educational attainment and leadership development programs.  The Annual Awards Gala is the signature event of CHCI’s Hispanic Heritage Month Events. 
  2. Purchase two gala tickets and donate them to CHCI to allow emerging Latino leaders the opportunity to experience this signature Hispanic Heritage Month Event.
