During its 25th Anniversary Gala on March 14 the Latino Student Fund (LSF) recognized Crimsonbridge Foundation with the Community Builder Award.
“Over the years, the Crimsonbridge Foundation’s commitment to our mission has enabled the Latino Student Fund to expand its programs, offer professional development to our staff, and showcase our work to the community in new ways,” said Mario Acosta-Velez of Verizon, who presented the award on behalf of the Latino Student Fund.
LSF and Crimsonbridge have partnered since 2016 to expand and build the capacity for LSF’s academic support, college prep services, and independent/parochial school guidance for Hispanic students in grades K through 12 and their families.
Crimsonbridge has also supported translation of key LSF communications materials into Spanish, including the website, and creation of bilingual videos highlighting organizational success stories, and provided a challenge grant to increase individual fundraising.
“What we love about working with the Latino Student Fund is their openness to ideas, to connecting with others, and to growing as an organization in strategic and meaningful ways,” said Crimsonbridge Foundation Executive Director Danielle M. Reyes. “Being honored and recognized during such a special anniversary is truly meaningful for me, for our President and Founder Gabriela Smith, and for our Program Officer Caitlin Furey who works very closely with the program team.”
