COLLABORATING WITH LATINO LEADERS AND ORGANIZATIONS STATEWIDE TO ENGAGE WITH OREGON’S FASTEST-GROWING COMMUNITY

For the past decade, OCF’s Latino Partnership Program has been collaborating with Latino leaders and organizations around the state to support efforts on education, leadership development and bridge-building.

Supported by a statewide advisory council and local advisory committees, the LPP connects urban and rural communities. From Ontario to Astoria, from Portland to Klamath Falls, from Madras to Newberg and in between, LPP joins Latino-serving and Latino-led organizations with grantmaking programs, scholarship opportunities, and volunteer and philanthropic engagement to foster long-term relationships.

LPP creates space for Latinos and non-Latinos to engage in knowledge-sharing conversations through the Table for 12 project, people of color mixers, Conexiones statewide conferences and the annual ¡Conéctate! Gathering.
