Dolores works as a full time volunteer for the Dolores Huerta Foundation and does not receive a salary. She donates more than 95% of the income she receives for her appearances to the DHF, which relies on these funds to support our community organizing work. Dolores is typically offered $20,000 for engagements within California and $25,000 for speaking engagements outside of California, plus travel, lodging and ground transportation for her and a traveling companion. We suggest that individuals and organizations, that are unable to offer a similar amount, consider having one of her family members, a DHF staff or board member or a local DHF volunteer represent Dolores at their event.
In addition, you could reach out to organizations and supporters in your area that might be interested in sponsoring or collaborating on an event or hosting a fundraiser and/or meet-and-greet to help offset travel costs and maximize financial support for Dolores’s non-partisan community organizing work and the mission of the Dolores Huerta Foundation.
For a smaller donation, it might be possible for Dolores to send an endorsement of your event, a video message and/or participate via Skype or Google Hangout.
