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 is matched 100% by generous HDF donors, doubling the giving power and impact of every gift. This year’s Cambio para Cambio Campaign raised over $237,000 to support the HDF scholarship program.
For over 35 years, the Greater Kansas City Hispanic Development Fund has provided over $7 million in direct scholarship support to over 4,100 of our Latino students. Your gift to this program goes beyond a financial commitment – it provides hope and inspiration that our community of learners are supported as they pursue their dreams.
