You can be part of Fundación Banco Popular’s efforts for a better Puerto Rico through your financial contribution or by giving of your time to do volunteer work.
As a foundation dedicated to improve the quality of life in Puerto Rico, particularly the educational opportunities for children and youth in disadvantaged areas, we are at a crucial point in history that requires a more strategic collaboration with other funding sources. In 2010 Fundación Banco Popular created along with other local foundations and Hispanics in Philanthropy, the Puerto Rico Donor’s Education Collaborative.
The main purpose for establishing this fund is to maximize the collaborative potential of various foundations to provide donations that increase the administrative capacity of non-profit organizations that work innovative, effective and diverse projects to improve public education in Puerto Rico.
The participating organizations in the Collaborative Fund are Hispanics in Philanthropy, Ángel Ramos Foundation, Flamboyán Foundation, Segarra Boerman Foundation, and Fundación Banco Popular.
The recipient organizations in 2010 are:
- Alianza para la Educación Alternativa
- Jóvenes de Puerto Rico en Riesgo
- Nuestra Escuela
- Centro Esperanza
- Instituto Nueva Escuela
- SER de Puerto Rico
