New Mexico Community Foundation has several emergency funds to respond to immediate emergency needs throughout the state. From the gas outage in Northern New Mexico in early 2011, to the rampant wildfires of the summer to helping individuals that are experiencing drastic financial troubles, NMCF emergency funds were available to grant out over $215,000 in 2011 alone. With the help of our generous donors, NMCF can respond creatively and quickly to emergencies in the state, truly being a philanthropic “first responder” to hundreds of individuals and families.
