Year-End Grant Recommendations

Donor advised fundholders may wish to recommend grants as part of year-end campaigns or holiday contributions. We would appreciate recommendations should be made by noon on Friday, December 18, 2020. 

Due to the volume of year-end grants, please contact Gabriela Gómez, Vice President for Advancement, at (505) 988-9715 ext. 7002 and ggomez@santafecf.org or Diane Hamamoto, Grants Officer, at (505) 988-9715 ext. 7008 and dhamamoto@santafe.org, to make any grant recommendations.

*The timing of donor advised grants has no effect on your 2020 charitable income tax donations since your charitable contribution was made when you contributed it to your donor advised fund.
