In May of 2013, The Oregon Community Foundation Board of Directors approved the LPP statewide plan which contains two major provisions: first, to blend the LPP focus areas into the major OCF funding streams and programs; and, second, to focus LPP efforts on education (early childhood, higher education and scholarships), leadership development and community bridge initiatives.
The LPP’s major goals are to:
Work with Latino leaders and organizations to address education challenges for the Latino community, and to address other issues consistent with OCF priorities
Strengthen Latino engagement in and influence on social and economic issues that affect their lives and communities
Forge ties between Latino and non-Latino communities and individuals
