Grants Funded for 2016-2017
Forty-six organizations applied for grants this year. The Grants Committee had difficulty choosing among all these worthy programs and nonprofits. Twenty-seven have been awarded grants. All these nonprofits are community-based with budgets less than $300,000—most have budgets that are far less. Criteria for applying for a grant are available here.
The total awarded is $50,000. Unfortunately, a major source of funding we hoped to receive has not yet come to fruition. We remain hopeful and committed to raising funds to help community-based organizations that are making a difference in the lives of New Mexico’s children.
Here is a list of our grantees:
Grant Application Guidelines for 2016-2017 have been issued by the New Mexico Children’s Foundation. Applications must be postmarked and a copy emailed no later than March 30, 2016.
