STATEMENT FROM THE CASTELLANO FAMILY FOUNDATION

In light of recent events, the Castellano Family Foundation reaffirms our mission to enable Latino youth and youth of color achieve their education goals; promote Latino arts and culture; invest in the leadership of Latinos and our nonprofit partners; and use our leadership and leverage to promote social equity, inclusion, and diversity for Latinos and other people of color.

As we approach the 15th anniversary of the Castellano Family Foundation, our family renews its commitment to our founding values and principles and, in so doing, we stand with the community. We will continue to advocate on behalf of all Latino residents of Santa Clara County regardless of citizenship or immigration status. We will continue to work with grantees and like-minded organizations to advance the goal of social equity, inclusion, and diversity. And, we encourage organizations and individuals to come together in unity and support for this goal during these uncertain times.
