Latino Legacy Fund Leaders Step Up | City of Ideas

Posted 12/21/2016 by James Burnett, Director of Public Relations & Social Media, The Boston Foundation

So much of The Boston Foundation's civic engagement work relies on unique partnerships with leaders in our diverse community who want to see both their ethnic communities and our region overall succeed together.

The Latino Legacy Fund is such a unique partnership of local Latino philanthropists and leaders, The Boston Foundation and Hispanics in Philanthropy. It is the first Latino-focused fund in the Greater Boston area.  Our mission via LLF is to create and maintain a permanent endowment to strengthen the diverse Latino community of Greater Boston and contribute to the region’s civic vitality by supporting issues and organizations that advance the socio-economic status of Latinos—while enhancing the leadership capacity of the entire Latino community.

And while we're thrilled for Morales, Co-Founder of the Latino Legacy Fund and former Global Chief Financial Officer for TIAA-CREF, he's not the only LLF advisory committee member tapped by the Governor's office to serve!

Morales is joined in service on state governance boards by Aixa Beauchamp, also Co-Founder of LLF and President of Beauchamp & Associates, Rene Jarquin, Sr., Fund Committee Member and Portfolio Manager for BNY Mellon Wealth Management, and Fund Committee Member Carolina Avellaneda, General Counsel and Vice President of Operations for Fisher College.

Beauchamp serves on the Massachusetts Workforce Development Board, Jarquin on the Board of Directors of MassVentures, the Commonwealth’s quasi-public innovation economy-focused venture capital firm, and Avellaneda on the Board of Directors of MassHousing.
