Contents "The sun comes up over the Sandias on star time. It is another year, another morning. I watch it return in you and say one last song to return home on." from "Late Summer Leaving" ~Joy Harjo


Albuquerque is the place you and I call home. It’s up to us to create change in the city we love so much.

I am honored to call Albuquerque home. This is the place where I raise my family, grow my company and work to ensure a thriving community for all. I have invested time and energy in my home and am honored to partner with others who hold the same values.

As you’ll read in our Annual Report, the Foundation has made great strides in supporting people and organizations that are working to improve the lives of the people of Albuquerque. In addition to our grant programs, this year the Great Grant Giveaway program awarded over $90,000 to nonprofits in each of our fields-of-interest. The comments we hear from attendees always highlight the direct connection between the Foundation and work of each of the selected nonprofits. We also launched the Mayor's Prize, specifically aimed at job growth, and the Social Giving Club which supports the work of even more nonprofit organizations in our community. In 2015, our annual fundraising gala, Concours du Soleil, was centered on teen entrepreneurship. We believe that teens who enter the workforce with skills, confidence and mentoring are far more likely to fare better than those who do not. Investing in our young people and their goals will ensure a trained workforce so local businesses can flourish, entrepreneurs are encouraged and more of our young people choose to make Albuquerque home. The Foundation also awarded $151,000 in scholarships to 151 local Morestudents.thanever before, we’re collaborating with local thinkers, movers, shakers and doers to support transformation and equity in Albuquerque. The Foundation continues to develop innovative pathways to supporting our community and we’re involved in conversations, collaborations and partnerships that will help us—with your help—do just that.

Jennifer Thomas Bank of Albuquerque Letter from Board Chair Jennifer Thomas

chairboardfromletter 4

During my year as chair of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees, I have enjoyed working with incredible people who, like me, are invested in our community. Our joint commitment to seeing our city thrive and grow will create opportunities for education, economic growth, social justice and a better quality of life.

I’ve seen so much change in my hometown of Albuquerque over the years. It’s my goal, as President and CEO of the Foundation, to help drive positive change in this place four living generations of my family and I call home.

Albuquerque is my home, and yours. It is with your generosity and dedication we are able to take on challenges. Your spirit, heart and intellect inspires us to continue to work toward solving complex issues while collaborating as a community. Thank you for partnering with us to make a better hometown for us Randyall.

PresidentRoyster,andCEO from President & CEO Randy Royster

2015 was a wonderful year for the Foundation. We granted $4.7 million, our biggest year ever. Throughout this report, you will see the power of community, collaboration and creativity embodied in the stories of our donors, grantees and partner organizations. We’re proud to share this city with them. We also spent time this year making some changes to our programs, honing in on what we can do to best serve our community. The Foundation determined a need to review and revamp our competitive grant program. We started with Community Conversations, which drew people together from all over Albuquerque to participate in open conversations about our grantmaking programs. The eight meetings we held convened hundreds of stakeholders involved in improving the place we call home. We learned invaluable information about what our community would like to see and how the Foundation can best work with donors, partners and our community-at-large to achieve it. Our changes were thoughtful, carefully considered and intentional. The changes in our grantmaking programs began in 2016.

2015 ANNUAL REPORT ceo&presidentfromletter 5 Letter

At the Foundation, our commitment to improving Albuquerque for all of its residents is unwavering, as is our dedication to partnership. We know we can’t make an impact without the support of our community, and we honor our vital partnerships with individuals, businesses and local government who share our vision for a stronger Albuquerque.


about what people want: the opportunity to collaborate with each other in getting to the root of systemic change, an emphasis on issues affecting children living in poverty and public-private partnerships focused on making differences in the place we call home. Nonprofit agencies and donors alike want to see collaboration amongst the groups working together to tackle major issues facing the city. Each convening saw various groups ask for more discussion, with other players— including city and county agencies— at the table. Many said they would like the Foundation to become more involved with advocacy at the legislative level. They see the Foundation as an organization with a bank of good will and without an ax to grind—just the kind of voice that can be heard above the din.

We convened eight meetings across the city and hosted hundreds of people. The community had a lot to say; we wrote down nearly 40,000 words spread over 70-plus pages of notes. Some themes arose again and again, including a need for cooperation among agencies, increased educational and employment opportunities, strong support for community-based services and a plea for more conversation and Weconnections.learnedmuch

We believe conversations can change communities. That’s why, in 2015, we invited Foundation donors, community nonprofits and others into open conversations about our fields-of-interest: Arts & Culture, Economic & Workforce Development, Education, Environmental & Historic Preservation, Health and Human Services.

We are entering 2016 enlightened and emboldened. The Foundation has digested the information and planned its next steps. We are excited about the opportunities ahead to engage our donors and nonprofit partners in more innovative ways. It is clear to us that this is the dawn of something wonderful and that we have a chance to be more effective than ever. We look forward to more conversations and to bringing more agencies together. And we are thankful for each person who took the time to talk to us about what matters most and how to achieve more together.

Running Start for Careers was named a Top 25 innovator in government by Harvard University’s Ash Center for Government Innovation in 2015, which garnered national recognition for the program. We’re proud to support Running Start For Careers and to ensure it can continue its extraordinary success to engage Albuquerque’s young people and create a stronger workforce for growing local businesses and new businesses considering an Albuquerque location.

Running Start for Careers is an innovative, educationfocused, public/private partnership program that serves 11th and 12th grade students. It is designed to engage young people in career training, to increase graduation rates and to create an integrated workforce that attracts companies to our region while keeping our young talent here in Albuquerque. Through dual-credit classes and realworld career experience, high school students learn about the vast employment opportunities available to them in Albuquerque. The program is administered jointly by the City of Albuquerque and Albuquerque Public Schools.

Running Start for Careers has served over 750 students in 30 public schools in Albuquerque since the program began in 2012, providing them with coursework in fields from construction and surveying to healthcare, finance and hotel management. Students can earn college credit while still in high school, simultaneously gaining valuable job industry experience along with their core curriculum. Placement in real-world learning environments (like internships and job shadowing) helps students see themselves as capable, successful workers, contributing to their long-term career motivation and engagement.

We invest in the ideas, passion and expertise of many nonprofits, supporting an array of programs as diverse as the people of this city.

They are an excellent way for the Foundation and its many donors and stakeholders to make an impression on Albuquerque, a city marked by creative generosity.

Through the Foundation’s inaugural grant, the SVEDC created a program in partnership with local agencies to develop a coordinated business development campaign for Spanish and English-speaking entrepreneurs and business owners in the South Valley. They have already begun to see the seeds of change take root through this effort. For the first time in five years, the SVEDC’s business incubator is at 100% capacity. Six new clients joined the SVEDC since January, half of which are primarily Spanish-speaking.

The SVEDC’s roadmap to support small businesses has evolved into an entire support system of virtual incubation, designed to provide one-on-one, high-touch business support to South Valley entrepreneurs, with a focus on low-income and immigrant entrepreneurs. Since rolling out a pilot in January, this virtual incubation program has begun to prove itself and now has five entrepreneurs working to grow their startups, formalize their business operations and continue their expansion.

South Valley Economic Development Center - TAZA Program In 2015, the Foundation opened grantmaking in our newly established Economic & Workforce Development field-of-interest. While community foundations have not historically been directly engaged in economic development services, we recognize that permanent, real change in the community requires job growth, along with education and training for the careers of the future. Our approach for Economic & Workforce Development grantmaking is to engage in partnerships with nonprofit organizations, business leaders and the government to promote job growth and workforce development. With that in mind, the Foundation awarded its first Economic & Workforce Development grant to the South Valley Economic Development Center (SVEDC). As an organization, the SVEDC provides facilities, resources and training for new and expanding small businesses, with an eye towards job creation and fostering economic revitalization in the South Valley.


Donor-Advised grants

More than 80% of grants made each year are from funds restricted by donors. Donor-advised fund holders may make recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees throughout the year to award specific grants to nonprofit organizations. Foundation staff members review recommendations to verify that organizations are qualified nonprofit groups. In light of the number of unfunded competitive grants every year, the Foundation encourages those with donor-advised funds to respond to grant proposals submitted for the Competitive Grant Program.

Many organizations meet the basic requirements to apply for a grant, which makes applying for a grant a highly competitive process. The Foundation uses an extensive grant review process to assure donors and grantees that their interests are represented. Requests for funding are reviewed by committees consisting of members of the Foundation’s Board of Trustees and volunteers broadly representative of the community. Committee members use their individual expertise to contribute to a committee’s overall assessment of each proposal, including the degree to which a proposal fits the Foundation’s priorities. Committee recommendations are sent to the Board of Trustees, which is responsible for final grant approval.

Many donors establish field-of-interest endowment funds to respond to our community’s evolving needs. Grants from these funds are made through the Competitive Grant Program, which allows organizations to request funding for current needs in the community through an application has grouped these endowment funds into six general fields-of-interest: Arts & Culture, Economic & Workforce Development, Education, Environmental & Historic Preservation, Health and Human Services. Within these fields, the Foundation also has funds addressing specific issues including art education in the schools, direct services for the elderly, mediation, domestic violence and programs that encourage the discussion and study of ideas.

Foundation grants are made to support, strengthen and sustain an organization and its programs. In order to make the best use of available funds, organizations that address needs of underserved populations and are innovative, collaborative, strongly community oriented and responsive to changing and emerging community needs receive the highest priority.

Donor advisors may rely on the Foundation’s knowledge to identify particular agencies and programs they wish to support with their philanthropic dollars. With our ever-growing donor community, you never know just how or when the right funding connection might be made.

Volunteers assisted in making decisions about the competitive grant and student aid programs in 2015. They contributed time, thought and knowledge to the process of reviewing requests from nonprofit organizations and students. Our volunteers, as in years before, wrestled with the challenge of many more requests for support than could be funded, however, this year was a little different. In 2015, we added the option of live grantee presentations, which helped our volunteers get a better sense of the organization and the heart and intention behind their work. Live pitches from grantees provided the opportunity to ask and answer questions, making the process even more exciting and effective. The Foundation convened many separate volunteer advisory committees to review requests for funding and make recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

These volunteers represent all segments of the community:

Dental Care in Your Home


Dental Care in Your Home served over 600 people in 2015, 59% of whom are over the age of 81. In 2016 the organization hopes to double the number of homebound people they serve.

Dental Care in Your Home is a valuable nonprofit that provides dental care, including cleaning, X-rays and other much-needed procedures, to homebound people. Founded in 2010, the program brings dentists and dental hygienists directly into the homes of elderly, sick and disabled giving them the opportunity to be cared for in the safety and convenience of their own living spaces.

The top-notch care this organization provides really makes a difference in the lives of needy New Mexicans: consider the story of an elderly man with stage 4 cancer who was confined to his bed. A visit from Dental Care in Your Home revealed his damaged, bleeding gums, as well as multiple broken teeth and dentures. The professionals cleaned his teeth and applied silver nitrate, helping soothe his continued pain and discomfort. When they returned for a follow-up visit three weeks later, his gums were completely healed. With help from the Foundation, Dental Care in Your Home was able to increase the availability of dentists in 2015.

After the Woodwards’ cattle died in a severe snowstorm, the couple relocated to Albuquerque where they began investing in commercial real estate. Once in Albuquerque, Hugh continued practicing law and began a relationship with the University of New Mexico (he served as regent of UNM from 1935 to 1937). The Woodwards’ commercial real estate ventures became very successful, leaving them with a large fortune. In 1948, Hugh and Helen established the Sandia Foundation to benefit UNM, Dickinson College (their alma mater) and nonprofits in Albuquerque. It was started with just a few thousand dollars. Twenty years later, following Hugh’s death, the Foundation began to grow, and by the time Helen passed away in 1974, the balance of their estate was transferred to the thriving foundation they’d established.

The Sandia Foundation has long been one of the biggest contributors in the Albuquerque area. The Foundation, which was founded by Hugh and Helen Woodward, New Mexican transplants who wanted to generously give back to the city they called home, continues to provide grants to support nonprofit organizations in Albuquerque. Hugh and Helen moved to New Mexico in 1915, hoping the dry climate would provide relief for Helen’s debilitating tuberculosis. Hugh began practicing law in Clayton, NM, but the two former Pennsylvanians also enjoyed a typical western lifestyle, ranching and raising cattle in the high plains region. They loved life in New Mexico and became invested in supporting a prosperous and healthy future for our state. Hugh Woodward was elected as the lieutenant governor of New Mexico in 1928 and also served as the US Attorney for the state.

Today, the legacy of the Woodwards’ love for Albuquerque lives on, providing UNM and other local causes with funds to strengthen and sustain their important work. The Albuquerque Community Foundation manages this grant program.

Every effort is made to maintain accurate records; however, mistakes may occur. If you feel your name should have been listed, or is misspelled, please accept our apologies & contact us so that we have correct information for future publications.

Each of our endowment funds is customized to meet the donor’s philanthropic goals and the community’s needs. Establishing an endowment fund with the Foundation allows donors to meet their charitable goals, as well as to receive tax benefits without administrative responsibilities. Funds can be established by individuals, families, businesses or organizations. Our donors have different motivations in establishing their funds. Some want to give back to organizations that have helped them—others want to memorialize a loved one or create an income stream for a cause that’s close to their heart. Others want to educate, to create or to help cultivate a passion. The Foundation helps donors meet their goals, whether they seek to support multiple organizations, donate anonymously or simply share in the joy of giving back to the place we call home.

Bob L. Turner Family

35 Bob Turner is remembered here in Albuquerque as a savvy businessman and an innovative auto dealer who combined his trademark off-the-wall humor with industry acumen and smarts. But long before he worked his way up the ladder at Rich Ford and then opened Bob Turner’s Ford Country, Turner was an avid Lobos basketball fan. He made sure of two things: that his friends and family got their Fords from him and that they were loyal Lobos fans, even though Turner was a University of Texas grad whose roots were in Corpus Christi. Turner so loved his Lobos that he helped launch the University of New Mexico’s auto program for coaches. When Turner passed away in June of 2015 at age 83, his family turned to the Albuquerque Community Foundation to establish the Bob L. Turner Family Endowment to support the advancement of collegiate athletics including UNM athletics, to provide university scholarships for business students including the Anderson School of Management and to support organizations that research Alzheimer’s disease or assist people and families affected by the Turnercondition.always gave it his all. His strong work ethic was honed early on in his life, when he would rise long before his school day began to milk the family cow before starting his day. His interests were diverse—Turner loved to dance and write poetry as much as he loved basketball and business—and he applied that same strong work ethic to each of his Throughinterests.the fund that carries his name, Turner’s family hopes to support organizations that will support and guide others in the areas that were important to him throughout his life. With the Foundation’s help, Turner’s legacy as that lovable businessman we knew will live on. And that’s no bull.



Philanthropy Central Funds Established in 2015

Constance Zandstra Fund for MANA de Albuquerque, 1998 Cottonwood Classical Preparatory School, 2008

United Way of Central New Mexico Funds: Joanne W. Finkelstein Fund Carol Hinton Karen & Tad Pound Fund Mr. & Ms. Tad Pound Power of the Purse Fund Karen Lynch

There are two types of Philanthropy Central Funds: Organization Endowment Funds (where an agency establishes a fund with their money) and Donor-Designated Endowment Funds (where a donor establishes fund for the benefit of an agency).

Philanthropy Central

Many of these organizations depend upon the annual distributions from their endowment(s) to help them meet the needs of our community. Others choose to reinvest their annual distribution into their fund for faster growth. Endowment funds are most successful and yield the most investment potential the larger they are. By pooling the funds of your organization with the Foundation’s endowment, you will enjoy the benefits of a diverse investment portfolio, as well as low investment fees that typically come only with very large funds.


The following have entrusted their endowment(s) to us. Fund names are listed in bold type. Donors to the fund are listed in light type.

The Foundation exists to help organizations achieve their goals and meet the myriad needs of our community. Here in Albuquerque, we’re fortunate to be served by so many generous nonprofits and philanthropists who are invested in improving our city. The Foundation considers effective management of organization endowment funds an important contribution to maintaining the strength of our community’s nonprofit organizations. We believe that managing endowment funds through Philanthropy Central is one of the things we do best. It is a privilege to help ensure Albuquerque remains a city of generous visionaries.

The Albuquerque Community Foundation has been supporting Crossroads for Women with grants since 2000. In 2015, the organization was proud to open two new facilities, including one devoted exclusively to supporting women exiting prison. The support from the Foundation continues to bolster Crossroads, ensuring it can provide quality care to the women and children who need it most.

Jennifer’s health issues had become so bad that her heart stopped three times in the ambulance on the way to the hospital. When she recovered, she felt like “everything was different”— she was motivated to transform her life. After participating in Crossroads’ after care program, Jennifer and her four children are happy and healthy and are active participants in the supportive community that Crossroads provides.

The Crossroads program helps to transform lives. Take Jennifer, a mother and former addict who is thriving in the program, as one example. Jennifer grew up in a loving family, but had her first two children at a young age and was in and out of relationships. An abusive relationship sent Jennifer into a spiral of medical problems, reconstructive surgeries, PTSD, addiction to pain pills and then eventually, heroin. She managed to hide her drug use for years, but things came to a head and Jennifer went to jail. While she was incarcerated, her heart stopped—literally.

Crossroads for Women serves women experiencing homelessness and incarceration in the Albuquerque area, while also providing support for their children. The organization offers evidencebased, trauma-informed counseling, housing services, case management and more, and works to empower women and help them overcome difficult histories. The Crossroads model doesn’t just help with the present; the work also addresses the challenges of the past and future, taking into consideration the individual importance of each woman in the program.

This year, we established the “Social Giving Club,” another fun way to give back to the community. The Club welcomes members who contribute $1,000 each year; 50% of which will be pooled with other members to award one large grant annually to an excellent nonprofit chosen by the members. The other 50% is added to the Social Giving Club Endowment Fund to provide additional grant funding in the future. The Social Giving Club harnesses the power of collaborative social giving and creates an indelible community among our givers.

The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is a grassroots organization dedicated to the protection, restoration and enjoyment of New Mexico’s wild lands and wilderness areas. This organization makes sure our incredible desert and mountain lands, like Otero Mesa and Rio Grande Del Norte, will remain beautiful and wild forever. This year, the Wilderness Alliance used funds from the Foundation to help remove graffiti in the Sandias. Utilizing a workforce of college students, the Wilderness Alliance developed literature on how to best remove graffiti, as well as social media programs and presentations about the topic of graffiti in wilderness areas. The messaging created by these passionate students will help educate the people of Albuquerque about keeping our wild lands clean and Thegraffiti-free.NewMexico

New Mexico Wilderness Alliance 45

Wilderness Alliance is interested in building diverse coalitions of people united in their concern for our natural world, including ranchers, sportsmen, scientists, tribal and religious leaders, students, community leaders and more. We’re proud to support this organization, whose demonstrated commitment to community and collaboration for New Mexicans clearly mirrors our own commitment to the place we call home.

The Mayor’s Prize brings a venture philanthropy approach to growing a community of successful entrepreneurs in Albuquerque. Together we are improving the conditions in Albuquerque to start and grow companies that can support our home.

Entrepreneurship in New Mexico goes back centuries, and entrepreneurial activity is among the best barometers to measure the health of a city’s economy. With successful entrepreneurs, we see more jobs, economic security and increased economic mobility. Together we are growing possibilities right here at home.

Fromnonprofits.27applicants, three winners were selected to share the prize. The following three organizations were announced as the 2015 inaugural winners of the Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship:

WESST – Creative PIE, the program that landed WESST the Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship, provides creative entrepreneurs with the wrap around support and tools they need to build sustainable, growthready businesses. Creative PIE will provide low-cost workshops and training to plug creatives into an ecosystem of support that includes financial literacy and business development training as well as marketing support and access to a comprehensive resource network.

Technology Ventures Corporation (TVC) – While TVC’s usual focus is startups, the program that was awarded the Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship is all about supporting second stage companies as they grow into new markets and create jobs here at home.

albuquerquefoundation.org entrepreneurshipforprizemayor’s

TVC is providing participating companies with critical raw resources—like access to behind-the-fence technology from the laboratories and second stage capital—while also engaging in guided practice and high levels of support as businesses confront new challenges like preparing for acquisition or confronting new HR needs.

Global Ties ABQ – Global Ties ABQ, previously known as the Albuquerque Council for International Visitors, is dedicated to building bridges between New Mexicans and emerging leaders from around the world. With the help of the Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship, Global Ties ABQ is implementing a new pilot program—called the Global Innovator Program—focused not on receiving visitors from abroad, but rather on preparing Albuquerque’s own to break through and succeed in the international marketplace.

The Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship is a new partnership between the Foundation, the City of Albuquerque and the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation. The prize, which amounted to $200,000 in 2015, seeks to support bold ideas that create and grow new companies in Albuquerque, but through the lens of mission-driven

All donors hope the fundraising events they attend will accomplish something meaningful with the funds raised. This is always evident with our annual gala event, Concours du Soleil, which ensures prosperous use of the proceeds with every passing year. This year, the Cinco Amigos, organizers of Concours du Soleil decided to focus on teen entrepreneurship, believing that investing in our city’s young people will contribute to a brighter future.

The Ray Zimmer Heritage Society, named in honor of one of the Foundation’s founders and its first board president, is designed to make Albuquerque a better place to call home for future generations. It is our city, both as it is today and as we envision it in the future. The Society recognizes donors whose far-sighted generosity will benefit future generations through deferred gifts and estate plans. These individuals have committed to the future of our community by naming the Albuquerque Community Foundation in their wills, qualified retirement plans, life insurance policies, trusts or other instruments. We appreciate our Society members’ foresight, generosity and thoughtfulness. When Heritage Society donors create a gift of this kind, they do so because they believe in Albuquerque, in its potential and in the great power of its people. Their donations will undoubtedly make a difference in the future of our city. Acknowledging Society members is our simple way of acknowledging future benevolence. We also appreciate the gifts of those who wish to remain anonymous.

Ted and Margaret Jorgensen 51

Ted and Margaret place a great degree of importance on cultivating the spirit of giving with their family and community. The couple’s children helped spur their desire to give back and create greater good in the world we all live in. Their giving eventually grew and expanded to many different local causes and organizations. Most recently, friends and family who have been affected by cancer, inspired them to support the new Ted and Margaret Jorgensen Cancer Center at Presbyterian Rust Medical in Rio Rancho.

Ted and Margaret Jorgensen are longtime Albuquerque residents who are truly invested in the power and the potential of their community. Born to New Mexicans in Arizona, as children they moved to New Mexico, Margaret to Red River and Ted to Albuquerque. Both fathers worked in mining; Ted’s father, Al, eventually became a local plumber. Ted graduated from Albuquerque High School and quickly began a busy life as a husband, father and businessInman.1963, Ted opened Titan Electric. In 1974, he founded Sound and Signal Systems of New Mexico, a specialty systems low-voltage contractor providing life safety systems. Ted and Margaret were focused on raising their family, and as their extremely successful company grew, their desire to share their good fortune grew, too.

Today, Ted and Margaret live in the beautiful North Valley of Albuquerque where they raised their children, grew their businesses and continue to contribute their time and energy to causes they care about. We’re honored to hold the Margaret & Ted Jorgensen Endowment Funds. The support of these strong, committed givers make it possible for us to help support the safe, healthy and exceptional community that Ted and Margaret envision for their family—and for us.

We can help you turn a home, a business or land into a charitable gift.

For 34 years, the Foundation has served as a trusted philanthropic advisor for individuals, families and businesses. We assist you whenever and however you need us, providing solutions and services tailored to you and your objectives. We also work in conjunction with our community partners, grantees and other interested groups to discover how every dollar donated can make the most impact in the community.

These classic charitable gifts are easy and effective. Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

Life Insurance

Getting Started

Place cash or property into a trust that pays a fixed amount to the Foundation. You can select the trust to pay the Foundation for as many or as few years as you select. Once the period ends, the assets held by the trust are transferred to the beneficiaries you name. In some cases, you can receive a substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes.

Our work leads us to many discoveries here in Albuquerque. And one of the things we’ve learned is that giving is personal—visions for the future are often connected with individual values and goals. The Foundation is dedicated to working with you to create a charitable giving experience special to you, addresses your concerns and makes it easy to engage with your community as a philanthropist. We will help you give in a way that’s both deeply meaningful and effective.


Real Estate

Retirement Account

Because retirement plan withdrawals are double-taxed, the value of the plan is decreased for your heirs. Consider providing other assets to your heirs and naming the Albuquerque Community Foundation as the beneficiary of your retirement accounts. This will allow you to both avoid taxes and preserve your assets for the good of your community.

Cash, check or credit card

Naming the Albuquerque Community Foundation as a beneficiary of your insurance policy enables you to create a charitable legacy without using cash and other assets you may want to go to your heirs. The process is simple: purchase a policy, make the Foundation the owner and beneficiary and then make a gift to the Foundation in the amount of the annual premium. Then, you take that amount as an annual tax deduction.

You may name the Albuquerque Community Foundation as sole beneficiary of your policy, transfer ownership and receive a tax deduction for the policy’s cash value.

Charitable Remainder Trust

Life Insurance

Charitable Lead Trust


Gifts of appreciated stocks, bonds and mutual funds result in a charitable deduction for the full market value of the donated asset, even if you bought it for far less, and help you avoid capital gains tax.

Becoming a Philanthropist

The simplest gift is a bequest in your will or trust that directs specific assets or a percentage of your estate to your fund at the Foundation. This can be used to establish a fund or to be added to an existing fund. A bequest will reduce estate taxes and grow your charitable legacy.

A variety of fund types we offer allow your gift to benefit the programs, individuals, focus areas or organizations you care about. Funds can be created in as little as one meeting and grown over a two—to five-year period. Additional tax-deductible gifts can be made at any time.

Place cash or property in a trust that pays annual income to you (or another named beneficiary) for life. After your death, the remainder of the trust transfers to the Foundation and is placed into the charitable fund you’ve selected. You receive income tax benefits for the year in which you establish your trust.

Give Tomorrow

Charitable Bequest

Assist students pursuing education through scholarship or financial aid awards. You suggest eligibility criteria based on high school, college, merit, need, field of study or other interests.

You may contribute to the collective giving effort of the Impact Fund, joining with other donors to achieve the greatest possible impact or you can establish your own Impact Fund. These gifts allow the Foundation to invest in the most effective organizations in a specific impact area selected each year.

Fund Types

A group contributes to a single fund focused on a shared cause, with grants recommended by a member or representative advisory committee.

Half of the annual contributions are available to fund grants now, the other half are added to the Forever fund for annual distributions in line with the Foundation’s current distribution policy.

These generous donors support the Foundation’s operations so that we can devote our attention to our community and our grantees. They invest in us, so that we can invest in others. These donors exemplify and embody the notion of community support, making this place we call home truly remarkable.

The Trolley Tours are a big hit with participants; one of our generous donors said she was “amazed at the knowledge, competence and passion of all the places and people we visited today.” What a gift it is to have the opportunity to connect our contributors with the real and thriving communities they fund. What a great way to celebrate the place we call home.

We spent time at each organization, talking to the leaders, the staff and the people the organization serves.

Jump Aboard a Trolley Tour


In 2015, the creative minds at the Foundation came up with a fun, social way for donors to see and experience the work of our nonprofits: Trolley Tours! We loaded up the “ABQ Trolley” with donors and community leaders and spent time cruising the streets of our city, visiting some of our neighborhood nonprofits. The intention behind the sunny, open-air tours are to help our donors connect with the organizations we support, seeing them and their work in an up close and personal way. Later in the year, Molina Healthcare relocated to downtown Albuquerque. Being a good neighbor, Molina provided transportation in their employee van for one of our tours.

2015 brought our third annual Great Grant Giveaway! 58 Featured organizations: Albuquerque Meals on Wheels • Albuquerque Youth Symphony New Mexico Water Collaborative • Paws and Stripes PB&J Family Services • ABQid

As the only organization providing seven different types of medically tailored meals to seniors and home-bound individuals, Meals on Wheels used Great Grant Giveaway funds to support doubling their food production over the next 2-3 years. By increasing their production, Meals on Wheels can serve more people both by providing nutritious food and offering companionship, which is at times the only interaction their clients have with members of the community and breaks the isolation and loneliness from which so many homebound people suffer.

The New Mexico Water Collaborative is dedicated to the reduction of water footprints for communities in New Mexico. The Great Grant Giveaway supported the Mill Pond Reuse Project, an onsite waste water treatment system currently under construction, that will treat up to 2,000 gallons of waste water from a new multi-family housing building within Sawmill Village in Albuquerque. This collaborative project will result in an urban greenspace with a zero water footprint, meaning no fresh water will be used to sustain this community park.

ABQid $10,200 ABQid understands that a key component to changing New Mexico's economy is to grow our own business and support the highly talented, motivated and visionary entrepreneurs in Albuquerque. The Great Grant Giveaway supported ABQid's accelerator program that cultivates and nurtures the start-up community and helps to develop ideas into full businesses rooted in Albuquerque's expanding economic landscape.

Paws and Stripes $21,650

The Albuquerque Youth Symphony provides opportunities for more than 550 young musicians to grow and learn through advanced music education and musical performances. Understanding that not every student has the means to enroll in the Albuquerque Youth Symphony, the program subsidizes tuition for 115 students. Funds from the Great Grant Giveaway, allow the Albuquerque Youth Symphony to continue off-setting tuition costs for many of the city's most talented and promising young, symphonic musicians.

New Mexico Water Collaborative $12,800

Paws & Stripes provides service dogs for wounded military veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and traumatic brain injury through integrating service dog training and education with mental health support. In this unique model, dogs are rescued from shelters and trained to help veterans live fuller, richer lives. Funding from the Great Grant Giveaway has supported counseling, weekly workshops, dog selections and on-call support for veterans and their families.


PB&J Family Services $15,650

Featured Organizations 2015 brought us our third annual Great Grant Giveaway, the meeting event that makes charitable giving even more fun and exciting.

This year, we are pleased to recognize two very special individuals who are well known and loved throughout the community. Jane and Doug Swift have demonstrated a lifelong commitment to Albuquerque. While raising six children, Jane and Doug, like many parents, volunteered for youth-oriented organizations, such as PTAs and the Boy Scouts. They didn’t stop there. They found time to serve on the boards of Opera Southwest, New Mexico Ballet Company, and Albuquerque Arts Alliance just to name a few. In 1997, they established the Jane and Doug Swift Fund for Art and Education.

Aimee received excellent physical, speech, occupational and individual therapy and made incredible progress both medically and developmentally. Aimee has endured many surgeries and is learning how to walk after two hip replacements. She’s even learning Braille and sign language. Her foster family proudly adopted her earlier this year. Through ARCA’s customized care, Aimee has been able to grow, thrive and amaze her caregivers with her perseverance and resilience. 68

ARCA ARCA helps Albuquerque-area children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities live rich, healthy and fulfilling lives. The organization provides education, recreation, nursing, nutrition, vocational training, foster care and additional services to over 630 individuals each year. ARCA values developmentally-disabled people and the contributions they make to our community.

ARCA’s support even helps create families. Aimee, a little girl who was diagnosed with Shaken Baby Syndrome and PTSD as an infant, came to ARCA at age six. She began at ARCA suffering from seizures and sleep apnea, after undergoing multiple surgeries to alleviate her traumatic brain injury and other health problems. Through ARCA, she was welcomed into a foster family.
