The New Mexico Children’s Foundation provides funding to small, community-based non-profit programs designed to foster the physical, emotional, educational, and social development of New Mexico children and their families.
What We Do
The Children’s Foundation is unique. It is a visionary, grassroots organization that funds small non-profit children’s organizations throughout New Mexico that may be a start-up with a strong mission or a growing organization that seeks funding to help expand its programs into other communities.
NMCF understands that most children in New Mexico have a wide range of needs and . The Foundation’s goal is to provide meaningful grant dollars to serve as many of those needs as possible.
