Corporate Giving

For decades now, the business community in San Diego County and beyond has embraced the Chicano Federation with open arms. We are very fortunate to have many caring friends who believe that supporting people in need is an investment worth making. We are available to assist corporations of all types, sizes and industries in structuring partnerships with us to meet the strategic goals of everyone involved.

Honor Someone

You can also celebrate a loved one with your gift. If you would like to give in honor of a deceased loved one, or are celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or another special day, we can help. A special letter will be mailed to a recipient of your choice letting him or her know of your gift in honor or memory of someone special. The gift amount will not be mentioned. Each memorial or honor gift requires a $10.00 minimum donation.

Matching Gifts

Some companies match their employees' donations dollar-for-dollar, so ask your employer to match your gift. By matching your contribution, your employer can double or triple the impact of your support, turning $1 into $2, $100 into $200, and so on

Private Foundations

Private Foundation support is an important resource for The Chicano Federation. Grants from these foundations support all of our services, through programs that reach thousands of children and families each year. Grants can be given for general operating support or can be designated for support of a particular program or project.
