The Latino Alumni Network (LAN) enhances the academic progress and professional development of UC Santa Cruz students, faculty, administrators, and alumni interested in Latino issues or providing service to Latino communities. The LAN Endowment sponsors scholarships, internships, and mentorships; fosters greater communication among alumni, faculty, students, and staff; and participates in discussions of policies affecting Chicanx and Latinx constituents at the university. Over LAN's 20+ year history, one thing remains strong—our commitment to each other, students, and the university.
Please consider joining us during this year's UCSC Day of Giving and make a gift to the LAN Endowment—the fund to support and serve Latino communities at UCSC. Your donation will continue to build this crucial fund and provide lasting support for our students, faculty, administrators, and alumni.
What is the LAN Endowment?
Funded by a collection of UCSC alumni volunteers in 2000, the LAN Endowment supports various projects across campus that aid Chicano/a and Latino/a students, faculty, staff, and alumni. Donations for the endowment help increase the annual payout to support this crucial work.
What is the impact of my gift?
A gift to the LAN Endowment is an investment in the long-term success of the Latinx Alumni Network. Your donation will be used to grow a fund that supports teaching, research, public service, alumni activities, and other initiatives. The LAN Endowment has supported mentorship programs, internships, student stipends, research, alumni activities, and other enrichment programs for Chicano/a and Latino/a students.
Join hundreds of Latinx alumni and make a gift to the Latino Alumni Network—allowing us to continue uplifting Chicanx/Latinx students and alumni at UCSC.
