Donors Empower Latino Association to Reach Challenge Grant Goal

Generous local donors have pushed the Latino Community Association (LCA) across the finish line in its campaign to meet a $75,000 challenge match from the M.J. Murdock Charitable Trust. Thanks to the support of 31 returning donors and 165 new donors since July 2021, the Trust has granted LCA an additional $75,000 to advance its work to empower Latino families to thrive in Central Oregon.

LCA thanks the MCM (Maybelle Clark McDonald) Fund for a boost of $25,000 that spring-boarded the organization toward its goal. The Murdock grant caps a bountiful year for LCA: the most funds raised in its 22-year history.
