Sustainability Fund 2020
La Raza Centro Legal Unveils Sustainability Fund 2020
La Raza Centro Legal’s Sustainability Fund 2020 is a new fundraising initiative designed to annually generate vitally-needed unrestricted funds. Funding generated through the Fund will be earmarked for building a strong and sustainable infrastructure through: the expansion of the organization’s team of attorneys and legal assistants to better meet the ever growing demand for its legal services among low-income, immigrant and Latino populations, a better alignment of staff salaries and benefits with comparable nonprofit legal service organizations, investments in technology and other infrastructure, strengthening planning, communications and fundraising efforts and meeting other operational needs. These investments will ensure that La Raza builds the systems needed to strengthen our funding sources and sustain the agency over time so as to provide legal services that will have the greatest impact on the communities we serve.
Our 42nd Anniversary celebration also served to demonstrate the strong support the organization has within the philanthropic community. Not only did the event generate a record-setting $80,000 in donations – exceeding our goal – but, additionally, $15,000.00 in pledges were earmarked for La Raza’s newly-launched Sustainability Fund 2020 initiative designed to generate unrestricted funding for capacity-building purpose.
