Cambio para Cambio

Cambio para Cambio (Change for Change) is a community-led campaign that realizes the philanthropic power of Latino students, local businesses, and professional organizations in support of the Greater Kansas City Latino community. In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, community champions engage in a friendly competition to raise funds for the Hispanic Development Fund Scholarship Program. Every dollar donated from September 15 through October 15 will be matched 100% by generous HDF donors, doubling the giving power and impact of your gift. In 2019 were able to support 96 scholars with the help of this campaign.For additional questions please email
