About Us

We are Albuquerque Community Foundation

We are rooted in Albuquerque and have invested in the community for 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 three words: Leadership, Trust and Legacy. They describe who we are, what we do, and will continue to be, forever.

Leadership | We are energized to work with and support leadership in the community.
Albuquerque is home to untold talent, diversity and strength. Those qualities are also found in Albuquerque’s local leaders. Cultivating connections with these leaders to have a stronger impact in Albuquerque is at the core of our work. We believe in the importance of a community-informed approach to grantmaking, and local leadership is a critical element to ensure we’re funding in the right places at the right time. We also work with these community members to develop the next generation of leadership to support personal and community growth in perpetuity and with intention.
Trust | We have trust in the future of philanthropy.
Every day, we work with people who give to make a difference in Albuquerque. They give their time, their money, their heart — and sometimes all three. We’re inspired that we get to work with them to make sure their efforts go toward a cause they care about. They trust us to help them make the right decisions toward giving back. And we trust that, because of them, the future of philanthropy will continue in Albuquerque stronger than ever.
Legacy | We are proud of our legacy of support that will continue to help Albuquerque now and forever.
We care about Albuquerque, and so do our donors. We all want to give back to a place that has given us so much, and give in a way that will have an impact now and forever. It is because of this desire that we’ve been able to cultivate a well-established legacy in Albuquerque of working for long-term impact with people who care to see their investments make a difference.

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:

  • 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.
