Kudaka Family Hispanic Scholarship Endowment Fund

The fund was established in 2013 at the Community Foundation for the Fox Valley Region and supports Casa Hispana's Scholarship Program (a program that annually has been providing scholarships to Hispanics in the Fox Cities area since 1992).

This is the first endowed scholarship fund for Hispanics in all of North East Wisconsin, and comes from the passion and absolute belief that education is the foundation for a better and stronger future, plus Mito's involvement and leadership in the Hispanic community of the Fox Cities for over 25 years.
