Community Leadership


Community leadership starts with you

Contributions to our Community Leadership Fund (CLF) are among the most critical resources that enable the work we do here at the Foundation each day—from supporting food security to safety net health services, to working on creating housing solutions and elevating our educational system, to the far-reaching technical assistance work we do with nonprofits that has made us the largest nonprofit capacity building provider in New Mexico. None of this would be possible without the generosity of our donors and community partners.
