ABOUT
The Cambio para el Cambio (CpC)/Change for Change Campaign is a grassroots philanthropic campaign providing a fun and creative way to start conversations about philanthropy with your family, friends or co-workers. Its mission is to educate Latinos on philanthropy and to promote philanthropic engagement. The campaign is a three-year initiative with the goal to distribute 5,000 piggy banks into the community in the hope that with each will generate an average of $50. Over three years this would translate to a $250,000 donation to help address community needs. 2015 marks the first year where people were invited to collect change in the provided piggy banks and donate those funds to a non-profit of their choice. Read More
