Albuquerque Community Foundation

The Foundation is a tax-exempt 501c(3) public charity with a mission to serve people in the greater Albuquerque area.  

The Foundation administers a permanent community endowment comprised of many gifts, large and small, and uses the earnings from that endowment to make grants to other nonprofit organizations and educational institutions.

The Foundation is a New Mexico philanthropic entity concerned with all aspects of community well-being. Since our establishment in 1981, over $58 million has been granted to nonprofit organizations serving the greater Albuquerque area.

Our staff partners with donors, funders, national organizations, statewide community foundations, leadership groups and nonprofit organizations to build a vibrant future for our community.
