Grants Funded for 2017-2018
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 on our website: www.nmchildren.org. Watch for 2018-2019 Guidelines in January, 2018!

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.
