The Fresno Area Hispanic Foundation was founded in 2001, by a group of local business owners, to meet the needs of an ever-growing Hispanic business community. Since opening its doors, the FAHF has been committed to developing strategies and policies to better serve all Spanish and English-speaking business owners interested in the welfare of the Fresno-area Hispanic community. 

Today, the FAHF continues to support the growth and development of the community by bringing together business opportunities and assisting families from low-income households through specially designed philanthropic events.

We believe all Hispanics can embrace who they are,
can define their future, and can change the world.

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the board, staff, and partners of the Fresno Area Hispanic Foundation, I am honored to be named the recipient of a 2017 James Irvine Foundation Leadership Award.


The Awards recognize six Californians who are advancing innovative solutions to critical issues facing our state and comes with $200,000 in recognition of FAHF's work fostering opportunity through entrepreneurship in the San Joaquin Valley. 

As a partner in our work, I hope you'll help spread the word on social media so we can support more entrepreneurs in creating jobs and expanding economic opportunity here, in the Central Valley.
