CELEBRATING LATINO CULTURE IN AMERICA ONE TEAM AT A TIME!

THE DOMINICAN AMERICAN NATIONAL FOUNDATION (DANF) IS A 501(C)3 NONPROFIT ORGANIZATION BASED IN MIAMI, FLORIDA. ESTABLISHED NEARLY 30 YEARS AGO, THE DANF’S MISSION IS TO PERMANENTLY INF– USE LATINO CULTURE INTO THE FABRIC OF AMERICAN SOCIETY THROUGH THE CELEBRATION OF HISPANIC CULTURAL HERITAGE, ACHIEVEMENTS, AND ACCOMPLISHMENTS ON A NATIONAL PLATFORM WITH PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAMS.

STAYING TRUE TO ITS MISSION, DANF HAS SPEARHEADED HIGH-PROFILE INITIATIVES AS THE WHITE HO– USE BRIEFING OF DOMINICAN-AMERICAN LEADERS IN WASHINGTON, DC TO ADDRESS HISPANIC SOCIAL CONCERNS AND ECONOMIC POTENTIAL. HOWEVER, THE CORNERSTONE OF THE FOUNDATION’S EFFORTS IS CENTERED AROUND ITS TRADEMARKED “DOMINICAN HERITAGE NIGHT” CONCEPT THAT IS ACTIVATED WITH PROFESSIONAL SPORTS TEAMS FROM EVERY MAJOR SPORTS LEAGUE IN THE COUNTRY. THESE CULTURAL EXCHANGE EXPERIENCES BRING MUSICALLY DRIVEN CULTURAL DISPLAYS AS A CELEBRATION OF DOMINICAN HERITAGE AND EXCELLENCE. THE FOUNDATION — USES THESE SPORTING EVENTS AS A PLATFORM TO GENERATE AWARENESS OF THE SOCIETAL CONTRIBUTIONS FROM LATINOS IN THE US, WHILE TURNING THEIR SAME COMMUNITIES INTO ACTIVE CONTRIBUTORS TO THEIR OWN SUCCESS.

THE FOUNDATION’S LEADERSHIP TEAM FEATURES MANY TALENTED AND HIGHLY DECORATED HISPANIC AMERICAN PROFESSIONALS THAT HAVE GARNERED RECOGNITION IN VARIOUS FIELDS/INDUSTRIES. THESE COMMUNITY LEADERS — USE THEIR INFLUENCE TO CREATE BETTER OPPORTUNITIES FOR THE COMMUNITIES THAT THE ORGANIZATION SERVES AND REPRESENTS. THROUGHOUT THE DANF’S MANY YEARS OF SERVICE, THE ORGANIZATION HAS DEMONSTRATED A COMMITMENT TO EXCELLENCE, PROGRESSION, AND THE ADVANCEMENT OF LATINOS IN AMERICA.
