The Latino Community Foundation of Colorado is an organization that focuses on supporting Latino communities throughout Colorado. We invest in non-profit organizations and leaders who are helping Latinos to live a healthy and productive life.

One of our initiatives, HIP to College, supports high school graduates transition into college successfully. Unfortunately, between 40-70 percent of Latinos who graduate from high school and are accepted to college never make it to campus in the fall. Cost, anxiety about leaving home, and difficulty understanding all the college forms and requirements are the most common reasons that students drop off the college track over the summer. In other words, preparing our Latino youth for freshman year involves more than academics.

“Only 18 percent of Latinos in Colorado have a college degree and this must change in order to have economic prosperity in our communities,” said Carlos Martinez, executive director of the Foundation. The Foundation has invested more than $200,000 to help Latino students succeed in obtaining a college degree.
