Keeping the Promise

With Latinos expected to be one quarter of the U.S. population by 2030, the need to grow the scope and impact of our work is critical. To address this need, CHCI has launched the "Keeping the Promise" initiative – the most comprehensive fundraising effort ever undertaken by the organization. Its goal is to double philanthropic support over the next five years to advance CHCI's mission and vision.

Over the next five years we are laying the foundation for a bold future for CHCI, the Hispanic community and the nation. Our 2011 goal is $8 million – a 33% increase over 2010.

We invite you to be part of this ambitious effort to shape America's future.
