ABOUT EL CINCO DE MAYO INC.
Supporting Students Through Education
Our organizations mission is to provide cultural community activities, build cultural awareness and most importantly to provide scholarships to under-served/under-represented students in our local community. Our organization thanks all of our supporters, sponsors, volunteers, members and families from the Pikes Peak Region and Southern Colorado for the invaluable support and assistance each and every year. Without the great Team effort, partnerships and collaboration, the largest Cinco de Mayo celebration in Southern Colorado would not be possible.
Over the past 30 years, El Cinco de Mayo Inc. has provided approximately $200,000 to 350 students. This is a remarkable achievement in that all of our members are volunteers. Our members work year-round to make this annual event possible, as well as to successfully meet our goal in providing scholarships.
Our organization is always seeking individuals to commit and serve on the committee. If you are interested in getting involved and volunteering your time, talents and experience, please consider joining our efforts. We welcome anyone who shares the belief that our cultural celebration is an essential piece to our community. It is through the efforts of many, in unified manner, that we may continue to provide Cinco de Mayo celebrations in Colorado Springs and support local education through scholarships.
