Since 1972 the California Chicano News Media Association has launched and fostered the careers of untold numbers of Latino journalists through job fairs, workshops, more than $800,000 in scholarships and the heartfelt mentoring of its members.
We’re asking you to help CCNMA continue its ambitious mission. Your donation will support the nonprofit group’s operations and provide seed money for an exciting initiative we’re calling the Frank Del Olmo Institute. The initiative, named after the late pioneering Los Angeles Times editor and columnist, will provide a platform for programs to serve and inspire students, professionals and the Latino community.

Carlos Saucedo, ABC 10 Anchor/Reporter"CCNMA's continued commitment to students of color helped launch my career. I was fortunate to receive a CCNMA scholarship in 2010 while obtaining a master's degree in journalism from USC Annenberg. CCNMA's faith in my abilities encouraged me to pursue a career in an industry where not many Latinos are represented. Years later, I can honestly say that CCNMA helped me get to where I am today. As an anchor for ABC10 in Sacramento, I do my best to exemplify the principles CCNMA strives to achieve."
Claudia Buccio, USC Journalism Student"I was blessed with receiving the CCNMA scholarship for 2 years in a row. Without CCNMA and NAHJ I would have had such a hard time affording college."
