Let’s get together!

We host several annual and ongoing events in Albuquerque, all with the goal of joining together to give back to the community we all love.

Great Grant Giveaway

Each year several nonprofits are selected to present their good work to a room filled with 700 people. A check for $500 sits on every table ready to be awarded to one of the nonprofits. Generous corporate donors wait in the wings to add even bigger contributions once the Great Grant Giveaway is underway. And, at the end of the process, $100,000 or more is in the hands of the nonprofits to support the causes they represent. The format of the event encourages everyone to participate. The audience is presented a short video by each of the nonprofit organizations. Once finished, guests at each table deliberate until they reach a consensus on which nonprofit to award the check.

The next Great Grant Giveaway will be Friday, May 13 at Hotel Albuquerque. Stay tuned for more information and to register!

Selecting Organizations

Grant proposals are not accepted for Great Grant Giveaway recipients. Recipients are selected by Foundation staff. Through the course of our annual work, we receive nearly 100 Letters of Intent and Grant Proposals. In addition to being screened for potential Competitive and Donor-Advised Grants, all are reviewed through the lens of potential Great Grant Giveaway participants. Additionally, all Foundation staff are extremely active in the community participating almost daily in convening’s, events and other activities sponsored by local nonprofits. We are continually monitoring this work for consideration in our annual event.

Eventually, all organizations are considered as we piece together the puzzle that becomes the Great Grant Giveaway, most importantly reaching all of the fields-of-interest, population segments and priorities of the Foundation and its donors.

Concours du Soleil

Join Albuquerque Community Foundation and the Cinco Amigos to celebrate an amazing collection of New Mexico owned automobiles while raising funds to make a positive impact on the community. The night includes dinner and dancing!

When: September 17-18, 2022

Stay tuned for more details!
