Local groups win leadership award

Two Bay Area organizations — Asian Women Immigrant Advocates (AWIA) and San Francisco-based Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP) — are among five 2007 recipients of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation's National Leadership in Action Award. The award recognizes excellent philanthropic work being done in communities of color.

AWIA was selected for its work empowering low-income, limited English-speaking Asian and Latina immigrant women and youth to bring about positive changes in their workplaces. The organization focuses on English classes, workplace literacy and leadership programming, and justice campaigns.

Hispanics in Philanthropy, a network of more than 500 grant makers, donors, nonprofits and community leaders, was chosen for its work to increase philanthropic investment in Latino communities. HIP provides opportunities through professional development at all levels, member events that highlight Latino contributions to society, job opportunities, and a wide variety of funder-driven programs to encourage awareness, knowledge and leadership.
