Year-End Grant Recommendations

Donor advised fundholders may wish to recommend grants as part of year-end campaigns or holiday contributions. In order for nonprofit recipients to receive grant checks in 2019*, recommendations should be made by noon on Friday, December 27, 2019. Donor advised grant recommendations should be made online through our grant form or by contacting Christa Coggins, Vice President for Community Philanthropy, at (505) 988-9715 ext. 7002.

*The timing of donor advised grants has no effect on your 2019 charitable income tax donations since your charitable contribution was made when you contributed it to your donor advised fund.
