Our Funding Priorities for 2018



Language & Identity

Support our Beyond Español, Indigenous Languages oral history project, LEERDC, our reviews of books available at the library, as well as interviews, short stories and exclusive videos.

Culinary Arts

Support our crowdsourcing campaign for Tamalfest 2018!

TamalFest DC attracts hundreds of people and showcases the delicious cuisines of local chefs, as well as LatinX artists, musicians and community groups. You donation will also help us continue our new YouTube cooking show and add new professional development events trainings.



DC art & artists

We’ve interviewed hundreds of local artists over the last few years. Or more accurately: our interns and volunteers have!

With your support, we will expand our mentorship efforts that allows us to consistently publish high quality, original work, while supporting the development of our community contributors.


Organizational Support

It isn’t glamorous, but without funding to pay for essentials such as insurance, online service charges, registration fees, and office supplies, Hola Cultura would be unable to do all the great work we do!

A donation to our Organizational Support fund will have a very direct impact on how successful we can be in all of our operations in 2018.
