Amalia’s Philanthropic and Community Work

Amalia’s community involvement includes philanthropy and board service, in addition to mentoring scores of women entrepreneurs. As a women-owned small business in the Twin Cities, she values supporting other female and Latino-owned organizations locally in Minneapolis and St. Paul and international organizations. Her generosity has had an economic impact of hundreds of thousands of dollars through fundraising and charitable contributions, plus donations of time and talent.
