1. Start a fund: The NMCF is home to more than 250 charitable funds and foundations created by generous individuals, families, business and organizations to support the causes they care about in New Mexico and beyond.
  2. Give to the New Mexico Matters Fund: This fund supports the NMCF’s innovative programs, publications and services that help philanthropists, nonprofits and others learn more about and address community needs.
  3. Plan ahead: If you are not able to make a substantial gift to charity now but want to leave something for New Mexico, consider including NMCF in your will or living trust. You can leave a stated dollar amount, a property, a percentage of your estate, or the remainder after distributions to other beneficiaries.
  4. Give to an existing program or fund at NMCF: Learn more about the issue areas where NMCF and its partners are currently focusing philanthropic resources. You can make a donation to any of these funds right now and make a difference.
