Grant Awarded to Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of LA by
USHCC Foundation & Wells Fargo
The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Louisiana (HCCL) would like to thank the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Foundation and Wells Fargo for awarding our organization with a Grant to continue our mission of fostering the continued economic growth, development, and promotion of Hispanic businesses and their associations in the State of Louisiana, and to serve as the conduit between the Hispanic business community and the community at large.
The USHCC provides $100,000 dollars annually to chambers in the U.S. to support programs that provide economic development opportunities to small business communities and serve their members. Chamber recipients were recognized at the USHCC 2016 Legislative Summit in Washington D.C.
Due to demographic and cultural shifts taking place in society, financial needs, and impact of climate change, Wells Fargo has committed itself in assisting affected areas such as, products, services, corporate culture, operations, and philanthropy. The HCCL would also like to highlight Wells Fargo’s philanthropic goal donation $665 million by 2020 to address social, economic, and environmental needs, in addition to time and financial resources given to local nonprofit organizations.
We are excited, honored, and proud to have received this important recognition from the USHCC Foundation who believes in the grassroots work of the Chambers of Commerce and their impact on the communities which they serve.
