Who We Are: Our Mission

The Santa Fe Community Foundation is devoted to building healthy and vital communities in the region where:

  • Racial, cultural or economic differences do not limit access to health, education or employment
  • Diverse audiences enjoy the many arts and cultural heritages of our region
  • All sectors of our community take responsibility for ensuring a healthy environment

To this end, we commit our resources to building:

Philanthropy that is robust, effective, and focused on critical issues facing communities.

  • We educate and engage philanthropists in strategic giving.
  • We invest discretionary resources in the best possible solutions to targeted problems.
  • We create opportunities for foundations and other philanthropic partners to leverage each other’s knowledge and resources to achieve lasting change.

Nonprofits that achieve their missions with excellence.

  • We build a sustainable infrastructure that provides nonprofits with the technical and financial assistance needed to be highly effective and achieve their potential.
  • We make it possible for organizations to collaborate in tackling complex community problems, developing promising approaches, and executing shared strategies.
