Nuestras Raíces (formerly Hispanic Business/Professional Association) serves the Hispanic community of the Inland Northwest by creating connections and building relationships. The organization’s services include providing scholarships and sporting programs for local Hispanic youth, creating opportunities for Hispanic businesses and professionals, conducting financial literacy workshops and career mentorship opportunities, and hosting cultural and arts events.
Nuestras Raíces’ new fund at Innovia, the Hispanic Business Professional Association Endowment, is all about investing in the organization’s future, so that the next generation of Nuestras Raíces leaders can continue supporting and empowering the individuals of their communities.
“It’s for the next generations,” Executive Director Fernanda Mazcot explains. “I’m not always going to be here, and neither will the board, but we want to guarantee that Nuestras Raíces’ work will continue to be an advocate for education and youth.”
