Patty Arvielo, Cofounder & President
New American Funding
In the last 12 months, I’m most proud of:
1). I have long believed in giving back and supporting the next generation and thanks to New American Funding’s success, I am now in a position to do that in ways that I never have before. My focus now is on uplifting women, both in the mortgage industry and outside of it, helping to shape the next generation of public leaders, and continuing to expand the empowerment of women and minorities.
2). I have recently taken a much more active role in supporting Hispanic-owned companies. Earlier this year, I acquired a 50% majority stake in #WeAllGrow Latina, a community of thriving Latina creators, makers, and entrepreneurs, to boost the group’s mission of supporting and uplifting Latinas. Now is the right time to step up and support their mission and help other Latinas find success like I have.
3). That’s also why I invested in Encantos, a Hispanic-owned company that helps children learn the skills they need to thrive in the 21st century. Being a part of Encantos allows me to support the development of the leaders of tomorrow.
I am proud of the role I am playing with each of these organizations, but I view these actions as the first steps in a larger philanthropic mission that will only grow in the next several years. I’ve been very fortunate in my career and I’m ready to use my position to help others find the same kind of success.
