Jazmine Llamas Advisory Fund

Established 2021

In an attempt to create greater awareness of National Association of Latino Fraternal Organizations and community support in the Midwest, 7 members from from three Greek NALFO organizations; Hermandad de Sigma Iota Alpha Inc, Gamma Phi Omega International Sorority Inc, and Phi Iota Alpha Fraternity Inc. have proposed a Back to School Bash for the summer of 2021. This event will take place on Saturday, August 14th. Our goal is to provide 500 school supply kits to youth of the city of Aurora and promote generational excellence.

We have partnered up with the City of Aurora’s 1st Ward Alderman Emmanuel S. Llamas and Youth’s Services Manager Simon Rodriguez in an attempt to allow this event to be available to any student that resides in the City of Aurora. The goal is to make this a yearly event and offer more resources and opportunities for the community in the near future.

Being a part of the Community Foundation scholarship committee is the highlight of my year. For many, a scholarship from the Community Foundation is the reason they are able to continue reaching for their dreams and changing the future of our world. I hope each recipient knows just how inspirational they are to those of us who are lucky enough to read their stories.

Thank you very much for supporting my college education for these four years. I will never be able to repay you for the opportunity that this scholarship has given to me.

[Renewing Scholarship Recipient] Graduate of Hinkley-Big Rock High School

As a first-generation college student from a low-income family, I was worried about how I was going to pay for books and supplies. This scholarship will allow me to focus more on my studies instead of worrying about how to afford college. I am working to not only create opportunities for myself but to motivate future generations. Thank you so much for helping me along this journey!

We chose the Community Foundation because of its reputation. It’s well known, established and we can trust them to do the job for us.

A community foundation is a donor-driven organization that helps donors custom-design funds that reflect their charitable interests. Through the years, grants from these funds have made a significant impact on our local communities.

…you can always start small, even $25 can make a difference. Remember we can’t take our money with us. Even if it’s just your gift of time. Volunteer and get involved.
