~ MALDEF is a 501(c)3 charitable organization, and all donations to MALDEF are tax-deductible.  MALDEF operates from private foundation, corporate and individual support.  It does not accept government funding.
~ Your support means that MALDEF can continue to protect and advance the civil rights of the Latino community.  This past year proved to be a turning point for the Latino community and the country.  From 1968 to the present, MALDEF attorneys and advocates have taken on the battles that are critically necessary for Latinos to have equal rights and dignity.  Our work is needed now more than ever and we are poised to make progress, but only with your help now.  Together we will make the difference. ¡Adelante!
