Building Opportunity and The American Dream

BUILDING OPPORTUNITY AND THE AMERICAN DREAM El Sol, a publically chartered School, is one of the top schools in California and the nation. It provides a quality education to nearly 1,000 low income, mostly Latino, children, many of whom are immigrants. Its academic achievements are recognized by the state of California, by the White House, by respected “think tanks, “by business and community leaders, and by education reform groups. El Sol has nearly 1000 children on its waiting list, a wonderful testimony to the School’s excellence and reflected in one mother’s recent comment, “El Sol has given my kids a chance at success in life…Without El Sol, they would have few opportunities. For my husband and me, El Sol is a blessing and a dream come true. Our children will live better lives and have more good choices than we had and now have…” EL SOL NEEDS YOUR HELP! Planning and design has been completed to build -out the 2.8 acre El Sol site or Phase Two. Two classroom buildings will be constructed providing 26 - 28 classrooms. They will replace the old, deteriorating, overcrowded modular buildings. In addition, a multipurpose building will be developed, providing now absent space for student clubs, community events, and teacher meetings. The State has allocated up to $25 million to El Sol develop Phase Two; half of the allocation will be a grant and half will be a loan at a low interest rate. The El Sol Foundation’s must raise $3.5 million to access needed state support. Donors have provided nearly $ 1 million dollars to date. But each day that passes brings El Sol closer to the deadline. We hope you will consider a significant gift. “The return on your investment” will be real and measurable. You will provide a window to the American Dream for many generations of low income students at El Sol and, because El Sol is a model for other schools, generations of low income students throughout the nation in public and charter schools. If we meet the November target, every dollar you provide will be matched by over 7 dollars in state funds and will enable El Sol to finish development of the site. Please help. For more information on El Sol capital needs, please go to El Sol Foundation.org and press Brochure Read More

Esperanza Immigration Legal Services

At Esperanza, we are committed to supporting the needs of immigrants. Today, more than ever before, the community we serve is frightened of what the future might hold for them and their families. Our immigration system is broken, our community suffers from tremendous educational inequality and a huge disparity in wealth. This is an opportune time to examine the causes of systemic injustices, and to work together to identify concrete, actionable solutions. It is our responsibility to hold our elected officials accountable to our needs, and we can do so by continuing to raise the issues, engage in civil discourse and direct philanthropic investments towards these goals.In the wake of the presidential election, immigrants across the country—including many of our neighbors—are living in fear of what expected policy changes will mean for them and their families. There is serious talk about revoking the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program, putting more than 725,000 “Dreamers” at risk of deportation. Esperanza Immigration Legal Services (EILS) is ready to meet the urgent needs of North Philadelphia’s immigrant community. On November 16 & 22, our team will offer two emergency legal clinics targeted to participants in the DACA program. In the coming weeks, we will announce additional initiatives to help our clients respond to immigration law changes.Now, more than ever, we need your support to assist some of Philadelphia’s most vulnerable residents. Over the next three weeks, we hope to raise $5,000 in grassroots donations to fund our DACA clinics, educational workshops, and legal services. Your gift will make a real, tangible impact:      $50 provides study aids for two citizenship class students $100 pays for a bilingual workshop, educating up to 100 immigrants on their rights and potential changes to immigration law $300 enables one immigrant to file a naturalization application to become a U.S. citizen $1,000 covers legal representation for an unaccompanied child in deportation proceedings Please partner with EILS to ensure that our immigrant neighbors, colleagues, friends, and family have the information they need to handle the coming policy changes with confidence. Together, we have the power to help the thousands of hardworking people who have come to Philadelphia in search of a brighter future.Thank you for your gift!Our Model:We provide low-cost legal services to low-income immigrants and their families, including self-petitions for victims of domestic violence, special visas for unaccompanied minors, green card applications, family petitions and naturalization applications. We also offer workshops in English and Spanish to help immigrant families thrive in the U.S., on topics such as financial literacy, debunking common immigration myths, and preparation for emergency situations.  We also conduct citizenship classes to prepare eligible candidates for the citizenship exam.We host “Citizenship Day” once a year, convening a group of lawyers to offer their services pro bono to immigrants from the community. What we have achieved:Since its founding, EILS has provided legal services to more than 800 low-income immigrants.  We have also served over 1,500 immigrants in educational workshops. In that time we have helped naturalize 180 new American citizens!Your gift today will help to alleviate the fears of immigrant families struggling in our community.

What Matters

Latinos and Philanthropy - A Community That Works Together Stays Together

There is a saying in the Latino community that “charity starts at home.” Giving and being involved in philanthropic causes is a natural part of the Latinos’ cultural DNA. There are fourteen cultural markers that define Latino culture, including familismo, which describes the way we view and relate to blood relatives, extended family members and friends. This sense of collectivism and spirituality drives our desire to help. READ MORE
