The Philanthropy HUB

The Santa Fe Community Foundation's building has been designed as a learning and gathering place for the philanthropic sector. Nonprofit board and staff members, philanthropists, and the general community have attended hundreds of learning opportunities with us. We welcome your input, ideas, and feedback as we partner with local facilitators to support your skill-building journey through workshops and technical assistance. We are committed to providing learning opportunities that encourage leadership development, diversity, equity, and inclusion. Join us!

Please note that all programming is via Zoom until further notice. Please contact Yolanda Cruz, Philanthropy HUB Coordinator, at with any questions.

How Supporting Local News Can Support Democracy, Health, Environment and Key Interests of Communities
with Rashad Mahmood, Melissa Davis, Marian Kaanon, and Max Yeh
Tuesday, July 27, 2021, from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM
There are two stories of local news in New Mexico. One is about the struggles of legacy media outlets such as local newspapers that have been disrupted by technology and social media. The other story is about the resilience and resurgence of local news during the pandemic, providing crucial information about COVID-19 testing, case numbers and vaccination sites – with new online and nonprofit players making a difference. The time is now to support local news and access to information as a public good that’s essential to communities. Hear from local foundations and donors who have been at the forefront of support for local news and brainstorm ideas on how to help support our New Mexico local news ecosystem.

LEARNING LAB: Navigating the Foundation Directory Online
with Jennifer Kilbourn
Wednesday, July 28, 2021, from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
The Santa Fe Community Foundation offers nonprofit organizations in northern NM access as our guest to the Foundation Directory Online (FDO). Foundation Directory Online offers a wealth of timely, comprehensive information on grantmakers and their grants. Jennifer will walk us through the various functions to help you find grants and potential funding. Jennifer will also help us learn about the Search 990s function. This can be used to search for IRS Forms 990 and 990-PF recently filed by private foundations and public charities in our database.
