Micaela Ramirez is the Executive Director of the Kansas Hispanic Education & Development Foundation, which eliminates the barriers that keep young people in poverty from pursuing higher education.
Led by a first-generation college student who experienced these challenges firsthand, Kansas Hispanic Education & Development Foundation provides financial scholarships and a supportive network to help Hispanic students thrive in college, successfully build their career, and become leaders in their community.
Stand Together Foundation is committed to breaking the cycle of poverty in America by driving change from within communities. We are building a community of social entrepreneurs who believe in people, work from the bottom up, and unite with anyone to do right. Since 2016, we have committed $150 million and counting to fuel the innovation of nonprofits throughout the country to build stronger, safer communities where all people can learn, contribute, and realize their full potential. Our goal is to help nonprofit leaders maximize their impact to transform more lives out of poverty.
