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.

Upcoming Philanthropy HUB Events

with Roy Bowen and Yolanda Cruz
Wednesday, October 27, 2021, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
The same pandemic that isolated us individually and as families also isolated volunteer board members of community organizations. Board members faced questions, challenges, and decisions that were new for every board, while the pandemic amplified challenges for vulnerable and marginalized communities. Zoom meetings replaced traditional committee and full board sessions. New digital skills were required to conduct the business of service agencies. Policies concerning vaccinations, masks, and social distancing were made. Client services were impacted by staffing and volunteer adjustments, and clients made their own decisions regarding COVID-19. Objectives:

  • Identify the unique or amplified challenges faced by organizations and communities during the pandemic;
  • Provide a peer learning opportunity to find out what solutions others are implementing; 
  • Gain examples and support as we become thought partners, navigating volunteer leadership during a pandemic.

“When we talk about land, land is part of who we are. It’s a mixture of our blood, our past, our current, and our future. We carry our ancestors in us, and they’re around us. As you all do.” Mary Lyons (Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe). This session will examine the significance of acknowledging Indigenous land and how to write an authentic and meaningful statement.
