The New York League of Puerto Rican Women, Inc. (The League) is a non-partisan, not-for-profit organization whose mission is the advancement of Puerto Rican and Hispanic women through higher education. The League assists Puerto Rican and Hispanic women by providing them with the financial support necessary to obtain their college degrees.
Launching in December of 2008, The League had its first Scholarship Gala Dinner Dance in August of 2009 and has presented 99 scholarships to date, at $1,000.00 each, to Puerto Rican/Hispanic undergraduate women selected for their academic excellence and service to the community. Our motto is, “Educate a woman and you educate a family.” The proceeds from The League’s events fund The League’s Scholarship Program.
In order to finance these scholarships, the League depends solely on the support of the community, since we do not receive any government grants. We must look, therefore, to the generosity of our friends, members, supporters, contributors and sponsors, to accomplish our goals.
We encourage you to download our Sponsorship Form, and welcome you as one of our loyal supporters.
Please accept our heartfelt thanks for your gracious generosity, and we look forward to seeing you at our Galas.
