About Us

We are Albuquerque Community Foundation

We are rooted in Albuquerque and have invested in the community for over 40 years. We pursue ways to make donations of all sizes have a larger and longer impact than they would otherwise have on their own.

When you think about Albuquerque Community Foundation, we hope you will think of four words: Trust, Equity, Integrity and Legacy. They describe who we are, what we do, and will continue to be, forever.

Trust
and we work to build relationships based in authenticity, actionable change, adaptability, and cultural humility.
Equity
and we will address ongoing injustice and work to change systems of oppression and harm.
Integrity
and we commit to providing high quality service with humility and respect.
Accountability
and we will be responsible for and transparent in all the ways we learn, strive, and adapt in our journey toward becoming our community’s foundation.

What We Do

At Albuquerque Community Foundation, we administer a permanent community endowment composed of many gifts, both large and small. We use the earnings from that endowment to make grants to other nonprofit organizations and educational institutions in the greater Albuquerque area.

We are concerned with all aspects of community well-being and partner with donors, funders, leadership groups and nonprofits to build a vibrant future for the community. Our grantmaking efforts are focused on the following fields of interest:

  • Animal Welfare
  • Arts & Culture
  • Economic & Workforce Development
  • Education
  • Environmental & Historic Preservation
  • Health
  • Human Services

Since our establishment in 1981, over $74 million has been granted to nonprofits that serve Albuquerque. The community endowment we manage will exist in perpetuity to support Albuquerque’s future forever.
