Welcome to the Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico


Thank you so much for visiting our new website. We’re glad you’re here! At the Community Foundation, we are committed to the quality of life in southern New Mexico. This commitment is at the heart of all we do. Our organization is supported by a broad base of individuals, families, corporations, and institutions connected by the desire to improve the community.

We are the trusted source for southern New Mexico, managing hundreds of endowments, including 39 nonprofits, 56 special community projects, and 2 initiatives – Unified Prevention! (UP!) Coalition for a Drug Free Doña Ana County and Doña Ana Communities United.

This allows us to serve as a center for charitable giving so we can support the arts, feed the hungry, expand literacy, provide scholarships, improve health, and support countless other meaningful causes in southern New Mexico.

The Community Foundation serves 7 counties: Doña Ana, Hidalgo, Otero, Sierra, Grant, Lincoln and Luna.
