Hispanics and Grantmakers: A Special Report of Foundation News.
Santiestevan, Henry, Ed.
The culmination of an 18-month effort, this special report is aimed at improving communications and relationships between foundations and Hispanics by fostering skillful and sensitive grantmaking and focusing attention on underserved Hispanic populations. Presented in journalistic form, the report contains an introductory section; 51 articles; an editorial wrapup; and addresses and telephone numbers of organizations, Hispanic research centers, and Hispanic foundation trustees, staff, and consultants. The issue includes several articles that explain the grant application system. Other articles chronicle the nascent development of Hispanic groups in Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia, and Hartford. Still others describe the changing Cuban community, concerns of Hispanic women, health needs, business and economic development, Hispanic youth unemployment, problems of aging Hispanics, and the forgotten migrant worker. Also included are basic demographic, social, and economic data on Hispanics and facts and figures on bilingual education. (NEC)
