Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with a donation to a Top-Rated Hispanic & Latin American charity!

   Sep 15, 2023

Hispanic Heritage Month is a yearly celebration of the history and culture of U.S Latino and Hispanic communities. This year Hispanic Heritage Month is from Friday, September 15th through Sunday, October 15th. Hispanic Heritage Month highlights how Latino and Hispanic communities have influenced and contributed to American society.

Hispanic Heritage Month began in June 1968 as a commemorative week that was introduced by California Congressman George E. Brown. Later that year Congress passed an official law authorizing and requesting the president to issue an annual proclamation declaring September 15th and 16th as the beginning of National Hispanic Heritage Week. From 1968 until 1988 every U.S. president issued the yearly proclamation setting aside a week to honor Hispanic Americans. In 1989, George W. Bush became the first president to declare the 31-day period from September 15th to October 15th as National Hispanic Heritage Month.
