Become a Mija for our newest class!!!

We invite you to join Circle de Luz as a Mija, a member of our giving circle that supports higher education for Latina girls through scholarships.

The investment is in the future education of a group of young women who will more than likely be the first in their families to graduate from high school and pursue further education. The Class of 2028 will hail from a Middle School in Charlotte, and our goal is to support the future dreams of 8 young women through that class.

As Circle de Luz members, the girls (hijas) participate in dozens of programs throughout their journey that teach important life skills, appreciation of the arts, wellness and more, while exposing them to a variety of careers and supporting them academically. We assist with their college search and application process and, when they graduate, we award them with a minimum of $5,000 scholarship (that comes directly from our Mija donations) that they can use towards the post-secondary educational opportunity of their choice. Our graduates have said, across the board, that they would not have made it as far as they have without Circle de Luz.

Nelson Mandela said "Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world." You can help us arm our hijas by committing to support the Class of 2028 with a minimum of a donation that will directly fund our scholarship fund. This money is pooled with donations from other individuals across the world to create a vibrant giving circle that funds the $5000 scholarships our hijas receive. Simply go to our website and fill out the Class of 2028 Letter of Commitment under the "Become a Mija" page.

We hope you will help us carry out our mission and become a Mija today!
