Nuestro Futuro

Building Latino Philanthropy, Supporting Latinos From their Earliest Years

Leaders of the region’s Latino community united with the Trust in Nuestro Futuro – “Our Future.” This initiative enables the Latino community to pool resources for greater impact in addressing problems of common concern. Nuestro Futuro’s goals are to involve more Latinos in philanthropy, and to support the organizations and programs improving the quality of life of Latinos in metropolitan Chicago. In the last 10 years, Nuestro Futuro has granted more than $2 million to support capacity building and community-based early care and educational programs that help provide the foundation for the academic excellence of Latino children.
