New Mexico Community Foundation
New Mexico Community Foundation was founded in 1983. It is one of over 600 such community foundations that are tax-exempt public charities serving thousands of people who share a common concern - improving the quality of life in their area, especially for the most vulnerable.
Individuals, families, businesses, and organizations create charitable funds that address community needs locally and globally.
The community foundation invests and administers these funds, and works with the fund’s creators to make grants.
Many choose the community foundation as an easy and effective alternative to creating a private foundation.
All community foundations are overseen by a volunteer board of leading residents and run by professionals with expertise in knowing their community’s needs.
