"For 50 years, the Chicano Federation has worked tirelessly for our community, especially working women. By providing our community with access to child care, early childhood education and affordable housing, the Chicano Federation has been the helping hand that has lifted thousands out of the cycle of poverty and continues to build a better future for our communities."
— Lorena Gonzalez, Assemblywoman
"The Chicano Federation is an organization that has impacted the lives of thousands in our communities by providing high quality critical services to those in need. Additionally, the Chicano Federation has embraced the entrepreneurial spirit of our communities by helping hundreds of women become small business owners and increasing access to child care."
— Mary Casillas Salas, Chula Vista Mayor
"I was one of the beneficiaries of a Chicano Federation program when my daughter was a baby in the Infant/Toddler Program. Thanks to Chicano Federation’s programs we continue to work every day to give better service to meet the needs of the community and its families."
The success of The Federation is made possible by the ongoing support of individuals and corporations like you. We offer several giving opportunities, designed both to meet your unique needs and to create meaningful partnerships.
