Give Big Kern Participating Nonprofits Featured B-i-i-i-g En Español in El Popular News

Spanish-language weekly El Popular News, a steady Give Big Kern sponsor over the years, has kicked off a three-part series today (April 17) featuring three agencies that are fundraising through Give Big Kern: Valley Center for the Blind, Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County and Youth 2 Leaders Education Foundation.

El Popular has proven itself once again as a generous sponsor by devoting a full page to highlighting these stories, thereby helping Kern Community Foundation and our partners to “Grow Philanthropy” among Kern’s Spanish-speaking community.

Frank Ramirez, Executive Director of Youth 2 Leaders Education Foundation expressed his gratitude for this opportunity in an e-mail to both El Popular and the Foundation:

“Many of our scholarship winners and applicants come from a household where Spanish is their primary language. I’m sure they will be pleased to see this article in Spanish. We are also trying to connect with more donors from the Spanish speaking community since one of our largest donors for our 2020-21 scholarship program is the Consulate of Mexico (Fresno Office). They will be pleased to see this article.

“In addition,” he continued, “I would also like to thank you for working with Kern Community Foundation on informing the Spanish-speaking community about Give Big Kern. Kern Community Foundation is helping so many nonprofits like us expand their fundraising efforts. They are a great organization that is helping nonprofits in Kern County grow.”
