Reimagining Great Grant Giveaway

We are excited to share news regarding the future of the Great Grant Giveaway, an event that has been at the heart of our organization for over a decade. Since 2013, the Great Grant Giveaway has awarded over $1.7M to more than 50 nonprofit organizations.

At Albuquerque Community Foundation, we believe in the power of community and the importance of making a lasting impact. We recognize that our world is evolving, and our community's needs are continually changing. With the update of our mission, vision and values after 42 years, we want to ensure that our grants align with these evolving needs. We believe it is time to reevaluate our approach, refine our strategy, and explore innovative ways to make an even greater difference. 

For those reasons, we have decided to pause on the Great Grant Giveaway as we embark on a transformative journey to reimagine and reshape the mission of the event for the next 10 years and beyond. This pause is not a step backward but rather a thoughtful and deliberate step forward.

During this pause, we will engage with our most valued partners: donors, nonprofit partners, past Great Grant Giveaway recipients, corporate partners, and community members, to gather insights and input that will shape the next iteration of the Great Grant Giveaway. We are committed to making the program more impactful, inclusive, and responsive to the ever-changing landscape of Albuquerque and its surrounding communities.

Reimagine with Us

Thank you to everyone who participated in our Great Grant Giveaway Community Conversations held in March and April along with our online survey. Our staff, Trustees, and Advancement Committee members have been carefully reviewing the feedback shared by participants over the past several weeks. We’re grateful to our facilitators at Prospera Partners for their support during this reimagining process. 

After reviewing the feedback collected thus far, we have identified the need to host two additional conversation sessions for individuals who are current or past donors to the Foundation. This group of stakeholders was underrepresented in the community conversations held in March and April. Our purpose in hosting these additional conversations is to provide another opportunity for donors to share their feedback and insights to help reimagine the Great Grant Giveaway. 

To allow time for these two donor conversations to take place in June, we will share our feedback report later this summer rather than in May as previously planned. 

We appreciate your patience as we strive to engage with all of our valued partners to help shape the next iteration of the Great Grant Giveaway. We remain committed to making the program more impactful, inclusive, and responsive to the ever-changing landscape of Albuquerque and its surrounding communities.
