The CIELO Fund's First Round of Grants Announced
The CIELO Fund published a list of inaugural grantees, including KVCR Radio. Each organization will use their award to serve and empower Latinos in and around the Inland Empire. In today's story, KVCR's Rick Dulock speaks to Jesse Melgar, who launched the CIELO Fund last fall, to find out about his hopes for changing lives in our region through the fund and to ask about the future.
NOTE: KVCR's Lillian Vasquez conducted a more in-depth interview of Melgar on an episode of Lifestyles last year. They spoke about the CIELO Fund and his place as a board member with the Inland Empire Community Foundation.
Here's a link to that September 29, 2022 episode of Lifestyles with Lillian Vasquez.
