Support A Project
As a leader in community philanthropy, New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF) collaborates with donors to build permanent funds to be distributed through a variety of grants, programs and scholarships. These services further NMCF’s mission to strengthen the values of: Equity and Fairness; Inclusivity and Local Leadership; Partnerships; Sustainability and Transparency. Below is a list of our program partners.
The funds go directly to the bills, not the woman. 100% of the donations help women in New Mexico. There is only a 5% administration fee. So, 95% is used for direct breast and cervical cancer services for women; with nominal amounts towards fundraising. www.anitasalas.org
In pursuit of these principles, Arca supports innovative and strategic efforts that work to advance equity, accountability, social justice and participatory democracy in the US and abroad. While the Foundation’s areas of focus evolve over time, we achieve our fundamental purpose by supporting efforts that affect public policy. www.arcafoundation.org

Award winning filmmaker, Isaac Artenstein, will be directing this project. Paula Amar Schwartz, a writer and President of the New Mexico Jewish Historical Society is its producer.
The Chimpanzee Chronicles presents an uncommon perspective that will take you behind the bars for a glimpse into the hidden worlds and real lives of captive chimpanzees.
Twenty-four original stories from around the globe, written by primatologists, sanctuary founders/directors, veterinarians, care givers, filmmakers and lawyers, bear witness to the injustice, exploitation and heartless treatment of captive chimpanzees. But the book is not only about suffering; it’s also about hope, compassion and the possibility of change.
We therefore strive to create an opportunity to bring together decision makers and influencers across public, private and volunteer sectors at the county level to work in partnership with seniors to put in place imaginative changes that will have real impact on the day to day lives of all of us as we age in this frontier community.
