Responsiveness of U.S. Foundations to Hispanic Needs and Concerns. Results of a Survey on Institutional Policies and Procedures Relevant to Hispanics and an Analysis of Grant Information in the 1977 and 1978 "Foundation Grants Index." Monograph Series 5.
This monograph examines the responsiveness of private foundations in the United States to Hispanic needs and concerns. Presented are the results of a survey on institutional policies and procedures relevant to Hispanics and an analysis of grant information in the 1977 and 1978 "Foundation Grants Index." In the introduction problems associated with research in the area of foundation grants are reviewed. The second chapter provides a description of the study and an overall view of Hispanic control and participation in funded agencies. Chapter three presents data regarding the pattern of foundation giving including: (1) agencies receiving the largest total dollar amount; (2) geographical distribution of grants; and (3) fields of interest in which grants were awarded. The fourth chapter presents additional information on surveyed foundations and their policies and procedures. A summary, conclusions and recommendations are contained in the final chapter. An appendix includes survey materials and tables showing survey results. One of the study's major findings is that only one percent of all foundation grant dollars studied directly benefited Hispanics in the United States. (Author/APM)
