We have compiled this presentation to provide you with information regarding our mission, our history of awarding scholarships and book stipends, and the responsibilities and rewards of serving on the foundation’s Board of Trustees and advisory Council. We hope this background along with the students’ testimonials will inspire you to join our network of individuals and organizations that share your commitment and passion to help college-level Latino students in new Jersey pursue their academic aspirations and professional goals. in addition to getting involved with us in a trustee role or as a corporate sponsor, we urge you to consider participating in one of our committees and/or acting as a mentor to our scholarship recipients or, providing career-enhancing experiences such as internships, career sessions at your place of employment or community service opportunities. as many of you know, scholarship recipients are required to perform 80 hours of community service in order to receive their awards. We are extremely proud of our track record of sustainability as a not-for-profit organization serving the Latino community. Over the past 18 years, the HBCsf has awarded over a quarter of a million dollars in scholarships. Please consider joining us in helping continue this great tradition of “giving back.” Thank you again for your interest and we look forward to hearing from you soon.
