The Hispanic 100 Latina Giving Circle (H100) at Texas Women’s Foundation awarded $166,000 in grants earlier this month to 33 North Texas-area nonprofits serving the needs of Latina women and girls in low-moderate income communities.
One of these nonprofits is ROSAesROJO, a nonprofit based in Collin County.
“The Hispanic 100 Latina Giving Circle is honored to award grants to these 33 organizations whose mission aligns with ours to invest and empower Latinas to achieve success,” said H100 Latina Giving Circle co-chair Linda Valdez Thompson.
ROSAesROJO aims to make wellness and cancer prevention accessible to Hispanic women and their families through education on nutrition, mental health and physical activity using cultural humility and community care. The nonprofit does this through a community-building app called Supervive and a worshop program called The Rojo Way.
“There were many worthy organizations, and we researched and selected these knowing that they are making a positive impact in the communities that they serve,” said Lucinda Rocha, H100 Latina Giving Circle co-chair.
The H100 Latina Giving Circle at Texas Women’s Foundation was established in 2019 by the Hispanic 100 Network to further engage Latinas in philanthropy, and to expand resources for local organizations whose mission is to empower, educate and support Latinas across North Texas. Since its inception, H100 has given an astounding $672,500 across 136 grants.
