Esperanza Annual Fund: Empowering Through Education

November 20, 2023

In the heart of Ohio, a beacon of hope shines brightly for the Hispanic/LatinX community. Esperanza Inc., one of the essential charities in Cleveland, a non-profit organization rooted in the power of education, has been transforming lives since its inception in 1983.

With humble beginnings marked by a single community-funded scholarship, Esperanza has grown into a formidable force, standing as the largest Hispanic/Latino education-focused non-profit organization in Ohio.

The driving force behind Esperanza’s remarkable success lies in the unwavering support of individuals like you.

Your generous donations, no matter how small, have made a profound impact on the lives of countless students, parents, and alumni. Last year alone, over 2,000 donors came together to raise over $100,000 to the Annual Fund, empowering Esperanza and its Hispanic Charities, to provide a multitude of life-changing programs:

  • Hope (Recipients on Stage) Scholarship Support: Ensuring that financial barriers do not hinder the pursuit of higher education, Esperanza offers scholarships that empower students to achieve their academic dreams.
  • Student Service Learning Projects: Fostering a sense of civic engagement and social responsibility, Esperanza’s student service learning projects provide hands-on opportunities to make a positive impact on the community.
  • Mentoring: Recognizing the transformative power of guidance and support, Esperanza’s mentoring program pairs experienced mentors with students, creating a network of encouragement and inspiration.
  • Adult Learners & Family Engagement: Expanding educational opportunities beyond traditional classrooms, Esperanza empowers adult learners to continue their education and strengthens families through engagement programs.

These programs, and many more, are the lifeblood of Esperanza’s mission to empower the Hispanic/LatinX community. But their continued success hinges on the generosity of individuals who recognize the transformative power of education.

Even a small donation of $100 or less, when multiplied by the collective impact of thousands of caring individuals, can make a world of difference. Your contribution can provide a scholarship, support a service learning project, or empower an adult learner to pursue their dreams.
