Who We Are & What We Do

Mission:  The Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico serves as a community resource, connects donors to needs, and supports charitable organizations in their work.

The CFSNM serves as a vehicle for people of all means to make a lasting impact on quality of life in our community now and in the future. Our organization is supported by a broad base of individuals, families, corporations, and institutions connected by the desire to improve the community. We manage hundreds of funds that allow us to act as a center for charitable giving to the community. This means 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 CFSNM manages many endowments, including 38 nonprofit organizations in southern New Mexico and is home to 32 special community projects.

We serve 7 counties, including: Doña Ana, Hidalgo, Otero, Sierra, Grant, Lincoln and Luna.
