Hispanic Development Fund

Established as a fund at the Greater Kansas City Community Foundation in 1984 by the Hall Family Foundation, the Hispanic Development Fund has a proud tradition of supporting nonprofit organizations devoted to Kansas City’s rapidly growing Hispanic community. The relationship between the two organizations grew and the Hispanic Development Fund became an affiliate in 2006.

The mission of the Hispanic Development Fund is to provide philanthropic support to programs that foster expression of Hispanic culture and improve the quality of life of Hispanic families in the Greater Kansas City area.

In 2013, the Hispanic Development Fund released a pair of studies examining the impact of immigration in Kansas and Missouri.
