Latinos in Philanthropic Leadership Rise | Association of Fundraising Professionals

In recognition of #HispanicHeritageMonth, we’re featuring this piece from AFP member Shirley Anne Smith as she discusses the significance of philanthropy and leadership in Latinx communities.

My name is Shirley Anne Smith, and although my name doesn’t automatically speak to my Latino heritage, I am a proud Latina of Puerto Rican descent. Born and raised in Puerto Rico, the essence of family—including gatherings and taking care of one another—are strong and ever present in my DNA.

Charities See Uptick in Giving in Second Quarter 2020 | Association of Fundraising Professionals

According to the Fundraising Effectiveness Project’s 2020 Second Quarter Report, charitable giving increased nearly 7.5% over the first half of 2020, a shift from the first quarter of the year. While many charities were concerned about the impact of COVID-19, a 19.2% increase of smaller donations in the second quarter played a major role in the turnaround.

In a shift from the first quarter of the year, charitable giving increased by almost 7.5% over the first half of 2020, compared to the first half of 2019, according to the Fundraising Effectiveness Project’s 2020 Second Quarter Report.

Please help the Deroma family! Our patriarch is currently undergoing chemo for stage 4 Mantle Cell Lymphoma Cancer. Our sweet man, Tony is halfway there and needs your help to offset the second half of treatment. You can only imagine the shock we took the day we found out that the strongest man we ever knew was suddenly weak, exhausted and is already stage 4! What to do, what to do? Our family of 4 and marriage of 40 years (09/21/1980) was beginning to disappear right before our eyes. We HAVE to keep him in treatment. Please help, any little tiny donation will help more than you know. Our current outstanding medical is 8K. The Oncologist co-pays 3x a week plus blood chemistry, surgeries, scans and prescriptions. We can do this, I know it in my heart. Tony is a Harley Davidson man and has enjoyed riding since he was 16. His second love (besides me :) is Classic Cars. He built a 1933 Ford Vicky over 15 years, and recently sold his love to install new plumbing in our home after a water main break. After the heartbreak of selling Vicky, he got Lymphedema in both legs, and his diagnosis of stage 4 cancer, then, boom, Covid19 hit. We have to pay the out of pocket of 3,750 to go on with treatment, and have mounting bills behind us. It has been a difficult year for everyone, we know, and bless every single sick person in the world and pray for them to get well. Thank you in advance for a little bit of happiness for a father of 2 and my best friend, my hubby.
hello friends we kindly ask for your support it don't matter how small it is i will go a far way to help these kids in africa during the pandemic its even hard for them to get by. god bless every effort thank you sharing for a friend. gf.me/u/yqryd5
