A fund intended to help Hispanic students in Ventura County has announced more than $70.000 in grants.
The Destino Legacy Fund is an initiative of the Ventura County Community Foundation. Established in 1996, the effort has awarded more than $900,000 during its history to help schools, and non-profit groups launch, and support education programs for Hispanic students. Among the five organizations receiving funding this year are Big Brothers Big Sisters of Ventura County, and the El Centrito Family Learning Centers.
Destino’s grants in recent years have focused on helping to prepare Hispanic students in the county for college.
