Cariño Latino Giving Circle

Transformative Latino Philanthropy

Cariño is the Spanish word for love, caring, and compassion. Family and community form Latino values, and those experiences inspire giving. Cariño honors those experiences through action. It represents love for community and viewing your community as an extension of your family.

MISSION
Build on the Latino legacy of giving by inspiring action.

PURPOSE
Strengthen the Latino community in Southern Arizona and transform lives through strategic Latino philanthropy.

CAUSES
Latino-led, Latino-serving non-profits that work to create real, positive, lasting change in our community through justice, equity and civic initiatives.

GET INVOLVED
Cariño is comprised of individual thought leaders committed to strengthening the Latino community through collaborative philanthropy. Circle members are empowered as decision makers about where their critical financial resources will be invested through participation in a selection and grant award process to Latino-led, Latino-serving non-profits.

WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW
Southern Arizona lacks strategic philanthropic support for Latinos. Latinos must build a stronger and more cohesive philanthropic vision. Cariño is committed to strengthening the role of Latinos in philanthropy.
