FuturoFund – Cultivating Philanthropy & Leadership in the Hispanic Community

11 03 2009

The blog title says it all! When I met with John-Michael Cortez, co-founder of FuturoFund I was intrigued & then inspired! John-Michael & I share the same vision for all Hispanics – to cultivate leadership within the Hispanic community.  We do believe there are Hispanic leaders in the greater Austin area but I believe there is a leadership gap & we need more.  I believe the FuturoFund is a great vehicle for developing community & philanthropic leaders in Austin.  I’m on board with their vision and I want more Hispanics and non-Hispanics to engage with them & support them in their efforts.  Their hosting a reception on Thursday.  I’ll be there & hope you will too!RBB Latino Professionals
