TRANSFORM Lives. Careers. Communities. Corporate Leadership.

" Philanthropy is commendable, but it must not cause the philanthropist to overlook the circumstances of economic injustice that make philanthropy necessary." - Dr. Martin Luther King

80% OF INROADS' STUDENTS ARE FIRST TO ATTEND COLLEGE IN THEIR FAMILIES.
For many Hispanics, economic factors remain an obstacle to college enrollment. In a 2014 National Journal poll, 66% of Hispanics who got a job or entered the military directly after high school cited the need to help support their family as a reason for not enrolling in college, compared with 39% of whites.
HISPANICS ACCOUNT FOR 60% OF ALL GROWTH IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS BETWEEN 2006 - 2016*

In 2016, *The Pew Research Center cited that the issue of education is an important one for Hispanics. Roughly eight-in-ten, or 83% cited education as very important to their vote in the 2016 election, ranking it alongside the economy, health care and terrorism as a top issue.

HISPANICS ARE NOW, FOR THE FIRST TIME, THE LARGEST MINORITY GROUP AMONG THE NATION'S FOUR-YEAR COLLEGE AND UNIVERSITY STUDENTS *

Of the Fortune 500 CEOs, only 21, or 4% are people of color. Despite the fact that women make up over half the workforce in 2017, only 4.2% of Fortune 500 CEOs are female -- a drop from 2015 — and of those, only 4 are women of color. Until these statistics improve, women and people of color will not experience full economic vitality for themselves or their communities, and business will not benefit from the full range of available talent. Clearly there is still work to do

CELEBRATING SCHOLASTIC EXCELLENCE

" By awarding me with this scholarship, INROADS has lightened my financial burden which will allow me to focus more on my studies and continue to improve in my academic classes. Through your generosity, this has inspired me to give back to my community and help others as well. Hopefully, one day I too will be able to give back to the many deserving Hispanic/Latino students that are undeniably under-served. Again, thank you for the support and generosity."
