The Manny & Pat Pulido Sanchez Foundation

Register for the 2024 Swing for Scholars Golf Outing!

As the first generation in each of their families to attend and graduate from college, Manny Sanchez and Pat Pulido Sanchez decided it was important to provide young Latino students with a pathway to success via educational opportunities.

Thus in 2019, the Manny & Pat Pulido Sanchez Foundation was founded, which provides charitable grants and scholarships to disadvantaged youth, specifically first-generation Americans of Hispanic descent for college and other higher educational needs. The foundation provides eligible students with a four-year scholarship of $5,000, totaling $20,000.  Since the establishment of the foundation, 11 recipients have been awarded $220,000 in scholarships.

Swing for Scholars is an annual golf tournament that supports first-generation students in collaboration with the Chicago Scholars program.  This year’s event is scheduled for Monday, August 12, 2024, which includes breakfast, lunch, a cocktail hour with live auction and an awards presentation.  Scholarship recipients will attend the reception and briefly share their higher educational journey.
