– Participant, Emerging Social Sector Leaders program, 2016
The Santa Fe Community Foundation is committed to supporting nonprofits in achieving their missions with excellence. Through peer connection, community dialogue, and professional development, we hope you find our programs relevant and inspiring. Let us know what's on your mind - we love hearing from you.

It's a given that leadership is critical. In the social sector, where we are so often working with limited resources, vulnerable populations, and fundamental needs, we think this is even more true. Whether you are just beginning your nonprofit career, are a seasoned veteran, or are entering the field from another sector, we design our leadership programs to support you, and your organization's, ongoing evolution.

We look forward to sharing information and future program details with you as this effort is evaluated. If you have questions about this work please contact Annmarie McLaughlin.
