Applications for the 2020 Grants Now Available

The NWA Hispanic Leadership Council and its Giving Circle calls local community organizations to apply for the 2020 Grants, to be awarded later this year.  The goal for this year is to select three programs addressing either education or entrepreneurship goals in the local communities of Benton and Washington Counties.  The gifts will be $1,000 for the third place; $1,500 for the second place and $2,000 for the first place.

The recipients for this year's awards will be selected by the voting Giving Circle, who contributed to the NWA Hispanic Leadership Council.  To be considered for the awards, non-profit organizations must complete the application found on by September 30, 2020.  The top candidates will be interviewed by the Council and awards will be announced in December, 2020.  

Last year, the NWA Hispanic Leadership Council and its Giving Circle awarded $1,500 to support the LIFE program at the Northwest Arkansas Community College and $1,500 to support the Pillars for Success Program at Rogers Heritage High School.  Those gifts were made possible thanks to the contribution of people around the room, who chose to join the Giving Circle and support our local hispanic community.
