Our Funded Programs
Each year, high school counselors in Sonoma County receive scholarship applications for graduating seniors as part of our funded program. We are proud to offer scholarships for Latino students to improve their educational attainment. The Scholarship Fund is made possible by the generosity of individuals and institutions who share our commitment to providing opportunities for these students.
The scholarship committee carefully reviews each application, assigning grades based on the eligibility criteria. Following this, the board of directors approves the list of applicants who will receive a grant for the upcoming academic year.
Over the years Latinos Unidos has offered financial assistance to athletic individuals and groups who lack the necessary resources to cover costs such as insurance, uniforms, and membership dues. If you or your group require assistance, please send a written request to Latinos Unidos del Condado de Sonoma at P.O. Box 5410, Santa Rosa, CA 95403. We will do our best to assist you in your athletic endeavors.
We understand that the passing of a loved one can cause a financial crisis for families in our Latino community. To help alleviate the financial burden during this difficult time, we offer a Funeral Fund to our members in good standing who have paid their annual membership dues of $50 per individual each year.
The revenue for the Funeral Fund comes exclusively from the annual membership dues paid by our members. However, we welcome donations from individuals and institutions who share our commitment to supporting our Latino community in times of need. Together, we can provide a helping hand to those who are facing financial hardship due to the loss of a loved one.
