IN THE NEWS! June 24, 2015. The Latino Community Foundation (LCF) has provided an unrestricted Gala grant of $5,000 to Santa Cruz Barrios Unidos. The LFC held their 10th Anniversary Gala and a live auction to support the work of Latino-based nonprofit organizations across California. A total of $40,500 will be invested in 12 Latino-based organizations. "These types of partnerships help create opportunities and provide support to historically disenfranchised communities," said Barrios Unidos Director Daniel Alejandrez. "We look forward to much exciting work from this round of awards, including projects that will support Violence Prevention/Intervention Programs in Santa Cruz County. We believe that each of these grants will advance communities and provide Latinos with innovative tools, models, and activities that can be shared broadly."
