(Austin, TX) Con Mi MADRE is proud to announce that it has been awarded a grant of $50,000 from the Hispanic Impact Fund, a program of the Austin Community Foundation. The grant was awarded on Friday, April 6 to the nonprofit and five other finalists whose work supports Hispanic Central Texans.
The funds will be used to grow Con Mi MADRE’s parent leadership and engagement program, which provides more opportunities for parents to develop marketable job skills and the confidence they need to take the next step in their education and career.
“We are incredibly honored and grateful to be the inaugural recipients of the Hispanic Impact Fund,” Executive Director Dr. Teresa Granillo said. “We want to thank the members of the Hispanic Impact Fund for believing in our mission and selecting Con Mi MADRE for this award.”
