The Hispanic Family Equity Fund: Investing in Change with Centene
While the pandemic has been difficult for all Americans, it has been devastating for our nation’s Hispanic community. Hispanics have seen some of the highest job losses, and are still confronting the worst physical tolls of this deadly virus. There is an urgent need to invest in change and address the inequities that are affecting the Hispanic community. It is up to us to ensure a better, brighter future.
As part of an effort to improve outcomes for the 60 million Hispanics living in the United States, the Healthy Americas Foundation has launched the Hispanic Family Equity Fund — a $100 million initiative that aims to improve health and well-being for Hispanics nationwide.
The $100 million fund will address the full spectrum of factors that impact health and well-being in Hispanic communities. It includes:
$20 million in grants to support community family services
$5 million to monitor national, state, and community policy to ensure Hispanic families can recover from the impacts of the COVID pandemic
$75 million will start a fund to support emerging opportunities and foster innovation in the delivery of services to close the well-being gap for Hispanic families.
Centene and the Centene Charitable Foundation are calling on companies and foundations to contribute to the fund and help support Hispanic families nationwide. The company will be matching the first million in donations to the fund — dollar for dollar.
It’s time to invest in change to make America a better place for all.
