Excelencia in Education’s Accelerating Latino Student Success (ALASS) Institute is the meeting place for professionals leading effective strategies for Latino student success in higher education. Participants, including Crimsonbridge’s Danielle M. Reyes and Adri Smith, learned about and shared evidence-based practices, strategies and resources that increase Latino degree completion at the community, associate, baccalaureate, and graduate levels. Also celebrated were recipients of the Seal of Excelencia – designed to facilitate institutional change to close equity gaps and increase Latino student completion.
#Community: our commitment to participate, engage, listen and learn with the communities we support.
#Community: our approach to philanthropy and community partnership.
The work of the Crimsonbridge Foundation is built on and informed by relationships with trusted community partners, including individuals and institutions across nonprofit, private, and public sectors. It is also derived from the knowledge that funding alone is not enough to create lasting change and that we must go beyond traditional grantmaking to achieve shared goals of positive social impact.
#Community is the Crimsonbridge Foundation’s commitment to participate, engage, listen and learn with the communities we support. It is a team driven social philanthropy initiative to take relationships beyond grant proposals and engage directly with partners to better understand challenges, identify solutions, leverage new resources, celebrate success, and build community. It’s our approach to philanthropy and community partnership.
