HITEC Foundation Mission
Shaping the technology of tomorrow begins with cultivating the leadership potential of today’s youths. In order to increase Hispanic representation in STEM, the HITEC Foundation addresses the issues that impact underserved students in middle school, high school and college campuses across the United States.
Retaining these Hispanic students through the technical leadership pipeline requires continuous support and investment from organizations that not only believe in their potential, but also depend on their talent to innovate advanced solutions. The generous support of like-minded partners enables the HITEC Foundation to deliver programs related to its three pillars.
Pulling up Hispanics is our goal. Making a change in technology is our future.

Let’s change that.

The HITEC Foundation needs your support to develop Hispanic leaders in technology.
As a founding donor, you will make a direct impact on the pipeline that produces the Hispanic IT leaders who will shape the future of technology.
It begins by stimulating STEM interest among Hispanic middle school students in underserved communities. The HITEC Foundation is committed to increasing STEM awareness by improving access to technology. This can range from establishing Wi-Fi connectivity to providing computers and software to schools with high Hispanic enrollment. It also delivers supplemental STEM-curriculum and computer-based activities that give practical application to math and science lessons.
These efforts continue at the high school level. In addition, the HITEC Foundation awards scholarships and grants to graduating seniors who demonstrate a strong interest in pursuing technology-related majors in college.
University students also benefit from the internship and mentorship opportunities coordinated by the HITEC Foundation.
In order to engage the support of like-minded organizations and individuals, the HITEC Foundation offers a tiered Founders Donation Package.
