Meet Our Members
Members can visit the Member Resources page for details on upcoming meetings, open opportunities, and other leadership, capacity building and technical resources.
Because our mission is to build and strengthen the capacity of the local infrastructure of Latinx-led and serving organizations, membership in the Latino Community Fund (LCF Georgia) is only open to local Latinx-led, Latinx-governed and Latinx-serving (two out of three) community organizations and 501(c)(3), 501(c)(5) and 501(c)(6) nonprofits in the state of Georgia that provide direct programs and services in the following areas:
- Civic engagement
- Economic empowerment
- Arts and culture
Organizations whose main program and purpose is to develop and operate events are not eligible for membership.
Associate membership is also available to specific programs of nonprofits that are 100% led by, advised by, and serving Latinos. Projects and initiatives led by these programs may also be eligible to receive programmatic grant funding.
Full benefits to member organizations include:
- Participation in grant opportunities
- Technical assistance and capacity building (free or very low cost)
- Leadership coaching and convening
Become a Member
Organizations interested in membership should meet two out of the three following criteria:
- Be Latino-led (Executive Director or CEO)
- Be governed by a majority Latino board of directors
- Serve a majority Latino client population
While there is no membership fee, we ask members to come together to support advocacy efforts and positions that benefit our community, showing strength in numbers and a unified voice; attend at least two membership meetings or convenings in person per year (all free for members) and be intentional about collaborating and working in coalition.
Nonprofits providing programs and services in the focus areas stated above, but complying with only one of the three criteria needed for membership, are still invited to complete the membership survey to be recognized as a partner.
Partner organization benefits include:
- Technical assistance services with the purpose of building and improving their capacity to serve the Latinx/Hispanic community in the state
- Discounted access to events
- Convening opportunities
