Who We Are & What We Do

In 2016 we celebrated moving into our new building located at 2600 El Paseo Road in Las Cruces, NM.

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


Your Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico (CFSNM) serves as a vehicle for people of all means to make a lasting impact on quality of life in our region 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 southern New Mexico. We manage over 200 endowments, including 40 non-profit organizations in southern New Mexico, and are home to over 30 scholarships and three annual grant cycles. As a center for charitable giving we support the arts, feed the hungry, expand literacy, improve health, and support countless other meaningful causes in the seven counties we serve, which include: Doña Ana, Hidalgo, Otero, Sierra, Grant, Lincoln and Luna.

CFSNM entered 2019 celebrating our 30 year anniversary! Thank you to all our donors, volunteers and committed community members who have been apart of our continued success.
