What We Do

New Mexico Children's Foundation is unique. It is a visionary, grassroots organization that funds small non-profit children's organizations throughout New Mexico. A group can be a start-up with a strong mission or a growing organization with a special needs program.

Organizations served through the foundation's funding come in all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. The foundation's core belief is that most children have a wide range of under-served needs. The foundation's goal is to provide meaningful grants to serve as many of those needs as possible.

2017—2018 Grants Funded for 25th Anniversary

Fifty worthy organizations applied for grants this year. Given that this is our 25th Anniversary, the Board of Directors voted to increase our funding of grants. Even so, the Grants Committee had a difficult time selecting the programs to receive a grant, eventually settling on thirty-nine organizations. These non-profits are all community-based with budgets less than $300,000—many have budgets that are far less. The total awarded is $73,500. Kathy Schulz chaired the Grants Committee, which includes eight other members of our Board. These Trustees read and reviewed every application. Criteria for applying for a grant is available here on our website: http://nmchildren.org/annual-grants
