SAN ANTONIO, Texas – The General Mills Foundation awarded a $25,000 unrestricted gift to the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) to support HACU’s efforts to promote the college and career success of the nation’s largest ethnic population.
“We are deeply grateful for the generous support of General Mills. They are investing in a better future for our country’s fastest-growing college-age population,” HACU President and CEO Antonio R. Flores said.
HACU, the nation’s leading voice for Hispanic higher education, represents more than 300 colleges and universities serving the largest concentrations of Hispanic higher education students in the United States and abroad.
With headquarters in San Antonio, Texas, and offices in Washington, D.C., HACU each year promotes efforts to target more federal and corporate support to Hispanic higher education students and the campuses that serve them. HACU administers several national scholarship programs. The HACU National Internship Program is the largest Hispanic college internship program in the country.
Since its inception, the General Mills Foundation, the philanthropic arm of worldwide foods marketer General Mills, has awarded more than $290 million to communities and organizations in support of education, arts and culture, and nutrition and fitness.
