Join us in recognizing National Hispanic Heritage Month from September 15 to October 15 by celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of Americans whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean and Central and South America. 

The heritage month starts on the 15th to acknowledge the independence day anniversaries of  Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and Nicaragua, all of which are on the 15th. In addition, Mexico and Chile celebrate their independence days on September 16 and September 18, respectively.

Meet the nonprofits

Adelante Mujeres (Women Rise Up)

This nonprofit provides holistic education and empowerment opportunities to marginalized Latine women and families to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community. Adelante Mujeres offers holistic programs and the tools to achieve self-determination in the areas of education, leadership training and enterprise through programs like the Agriculture and Food Sovereignty Program, Chicas Youth Program, Empresas Small Business Development Program and more. 

Adelante Mujeres’ 2022 Fiesta of Hope raised almost $140,000 with a Give Lively-powered Campaign Page in combination with the text code “FOH.” 


This organization fosters a community where people collectively learn, teach, reflect, share resources and organize for justice in the borderlands. Through popular education rooted in place and lived experience, BorderLinks and community partners inspire and ignite action to transform unjust border and (im)migration laws and conditions. Since 1987, BorderLinks has been facilitating educational immersion trips for delegations in the Arizona-Sonora region and beyond the border to Chiapas.

Borderlands has used Give Lively-powered Campaign Pages to great success with their LINKS fall fundraiser for the last two years (2021 and 2022).

Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement

Since 1982, the Hispanic Alliance for Career Enhancement (HACE) has been dedicated to the employment, development and advancement of current and aspiring Latino professionals. It serves as a resource for Latinos in the workplace, is a subject matter expert for corporations seeking to access diverse talent and, through professional development, resources and networks, and by facilitating access to meaningful career opportunities, helps Latinos succeed in every phase of their careers. HACE works with employers to remain competitive in an increasingly dynamic economy by helping them attract, develop and retain Latino and diverse professionals. 

HACE designed its 40th Anniversary Fundraiser to work with the text code “HACEGIVES”.
