Vecino – Neighbor Helping Neighbor Fund

Tens of thousands of people in New Mexico have lost their jobs as a result of the COVID-19 crisis, resulting in greater needs than ever before.

The Foundation will make emergency grants from our Vecino, Neighbor Helping Neighbor Fund to nonprofits that support those impacted by the coronavirus pandemic. Your gift will provide funding for food, water, and other emergency needs to some of the hardest hit areas. To donate, go here.

Please note that the deadline to apply for this round of Vecino funding was June 23, 2020. We will have another grant cycle through the Vecino Fund in the late summer/fall.
