For Donors

SMALL ACTION, BIG IMPACT Your statewide partner in philanthropy for 36 years

“The reason I am so interested in supporting the NMCF agenda is because they are the one and only champion of all the small, up-against-the-wall communities in New Mexico. The people in these communities need assistance more than anyone in the state. They are hard working and appreciative of what the NMCF provides them in terms of resources, expertise and funds. Also, what I find equally important is the competent, dedicated and forward-looking management of the Foundation. I am delighted to have been involved with them since 1994.”

– Terry Brewer, NMCF Donor
