Yvonne Gonzalez of Knapp Community Foundation

Honored

with Exponent Philanthropy’s Outsized Impact Award

 
 

Exponent Philanthropy
 recognized 
Yvonne Gonzalez, CEO of the
Knapp Community Foundation 

and 
Carmen Castellano,

with the 
2020 Outsized Impact Award.

The award 
honors Exponent Philanthropy member organizations whose style of philanthropy is achieving greater than expected impact.

The Knapp Community Care Foundation in Weslaco, Texas is a health conversion foundation created in late 2012 that provides grants for services within the Rio Grande Mid Valley. As a legacy foundation, it invests in health-related activities.

In eight years, the Knapp Community Care Foundation has committed over $31MM for prevention and wellness, direct health services, and behavioral health. A significant part of Ms. Gonzalez strategy has focused on creating relationships with partners who strive to make holistic and sustainable change in the community.

"Under Yvonne Gonzalez’s leadership, the Knapp Community Care Foundation moved from being a charitable organization to one that is strategically philanthropic," said Henry Berman, CEO of Exponent Philanthropy. "Her forward thinking brings more funding to better the health of Rio Grande Mid Valley communities in holistic and sustainable ways."

In addition, Exponent Philanthropy awarded the Outsized Impact Award posthumously to Carmen Castellano, co-founder and past president of the San Jose, California-based Castellano Family Foundation. Castellano was a devoted wife and mother, community advocate, philanthropist and the inspiration behind the foundation and its founding mission. The foundation has awarded $6.5 million in grants to support arts and culture, education, leadership development, and diversity in philanthropy, focused on Latinx and other people of color in San Jose and Silicon Valley. 

“Carmen Castellano was a fierce advocate for more diversity in philanthropy, highlighting the lack of funding to Latinx communities, urging donors to fund grassroots efforts, and requiring grantees to have boards that reflected the communities they served,” said Berman. “She helped amplify Latino voices and left a lasting legacy in philanthropy.”

Before she passed away, the Castellano Family Foundation released its Blueprint for Change, a comprehensive report on the lack of funding and other equity issues impacting Latinx communities and nonprofit leaders in Silicon Valley. The call to action in the report represents the culmination of her impact on philanthropy as a staunch advocate for diversity, equity, and inclusion.

The Outsized Impact Awards were announced during Exponent Philanthropy’s 2020 member meeting, held virtually this year. A membership committee reviewed nominations, selected finalists, and a public voting process determined the award recipients.
