The Latino Legacy Fund made its first round of grants Wednesday, directing $100,000 to five local Latino-focused programs. Created in 2012, the Fund is the only charitable fund in Greater Boston focused solely on supporting Latino-led or Latino-focused nonprofits. The fund was seeded with contributions of $250,000 each from the Boston Foundation and Hispanics in Philanthropy. It has since grown to about $800,000 thanks to individual and corporate donors, including MFS Investment Management, Eastern Bank, and John Hancock.
