About the Albuquerque Community Foundation

Albuquerque Community Foundation is a tax-exempt 501 (c)(3) public charity created by and for 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.

We serve primarily the four-county area of Valencia, Bernalillo, Torrance and Sandoval; however, our vision is to be a leader in community philanthropy. Our leadership spans local, state and national collaborative efforts and our donor-advised fund holders make grants statewide and nationwide.

We enable people with philanthropic interests to easily and effectively support the issues they care about - immediately or through a planned gift. We invest in the long-term well-being of nonprofit groups and bring people and organizations together, convening diverse voices to address local issues and opportunities.
