ABOUT THE FUNDS
ALL-IN RELIEF FUND
Our members are resilient, but even the most resilient people need a hand up sometimes. SHPE is here to support our members during the toughest times. Because if their basic needs aren't being met then they can't be their best at school, at work, or in their community. Your donation will be used to help our members who are most in need to be their best!
According to the Pew Research Center, lack of financial resources is the number one reason why Hispanics don’t complete their STEM degree. And currently, SHPE is only able to award scholarships to 20 percent of the students who apply. Let’s all work together to help more members. Every dollar donated helps our members succeed.
HELEN CUESTA SCHOLARSHIP
SHPE Board Chair Miguel Alemañy established a fund in 2019 in honor of his mother, Helen Cuesta, to give a scholarship each year to a deserving female student in SHPE who has demonstrated the ability to overcome life’s obstacles and who doesn’t give up.
Established in 2021 as an endowment by Board Members Dr. Emily Allen, Will Davis, and Diana Gomez, the SHPE Pride Scholarship is designed to recognize students who are out and proud, support an inclusive SHPE Familia, and make a difference for the LGBTQ and Hispanic community.

IRA OR RETIREMENT PLANS

- Life Insurance
Make a gift in your lifetime from an asset that would be subject to potentially multiple levels of taxation if it remained in your taxable estate.

to notify us of your gift so we can thank you for your generosity and ensure you receive a proper acknowledgement.

tax return. Please contact us to learn more.
