The LULAC National Office has entered one of the most exciting times in our 79-year history: the acquisition of our first national headquarters in Washington, DC. LULACís new national headquarters will be housed on the 10th floor of 1430 K Street, NW, in our nationís capital. This new building, currently under construction, is an office condominium that offers striking architectural features in close proximity to the White House and minutes away from federal agencies and Capitol Hill. Just one block from the metro, the building offers flexible, column-free, floor plans, state-of-the-art security, a fiber optics network, and high ceilings.

The campaign to fund the acquisition and build-out of the 10th floor of 1430 K Street is an ambitious one. Our goal is to raise $3,545,000 to purchase the 6,508 square foot floor and 3 parking spaces, build out the space, and outfit the office with furniture and equipment. The LULAC National Headquarters in Washington, DC, will house up to 32 full-time staff who will manage the operation of LULACís community service programs, advocate for national policies and legislation beneficial to Latinos, and handle the day-to-day administration of LULAC National and the LULAC National Educational Service Centers.

LULACís Future National Headquarters at 1430 K Street, NW, Washington, DCThe Case: LULAC improves the quality of life in over 600 Latino communities throughout the United States by organizing and encouraging Hispanic Americans to volunteer their time, effort and resources to help others less fortunate than themselves. To do this well requires a strong national operation that develops cutting-edge programs and advocates for policies and legislation which respond to the Latino communityís unique needs and challenges. The purchase of a permanent national headquarters in Washington, DC will provide LULAC with enough space to double its national staff, strengthen its ability to deliver model programs throughout the country, and engage Hispanic Americans in the legislative discussions that will affect their future. 

The Need: To raise $3,545,000 to purchase the 10th floor of 1430 K Street, NW, Washington, DC an office condominium currently under construction.
