Pool your donations with others for collective impact.

Future Fund

Future Fund of the Albuquerque Community Foundation

In 1997, the Future Fund started when 24 people decided to get together and pool their money to start an endowment. Since then, the Future Fund has grown to over 200 memberships, their endowment has over $700,000, and the group has awarded over $310,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations selected by the Future Fund membership. This group of young leaders is committed to making our community a better place to live.

Future Fund’s funding model is to grant unfunded Letters of Intent to the ACF Competitive Grant Program. This model ensures that we are able to make impactful grants to as many interested local nonprofit organizations as possible.

Future Fund Membership starts at $200 per year (that’s just $17 per month). Your money goes directly into the Future Fund Endowment Fund, then you and your fellow members decide where to grant over $20,000 in earnings annually. For more information about the Future Fund, contact us!
