2017 Annual Report

Page 1


In our highly divided times, bringing people together is more important than ever to break through the obstacles that prevent our community from thriving. We stand on common ground. We invite you to stand with us.

The Albuquerque Community Foundation brings together people from all areas of our community to stand on common ground: the nonprofits who are the heart of our community and make a measurable difference; generous donors who allow the Foundation to support and strengthen these organizationsʼ services; Foundation staff who monitor and share the communityʼs needs and accomplishments; the Foundationʼs Board of Trustees with their common commitment, despite their different backgrounds, to build a stronger community; and corporate and governmental partners who stand with us on common ground to bring about long-term change.

Our theme this year, common ground, refers both to the place we all stand, Albuquerque, and the mutual goal we all have – a more vibrant, economically prosperous community. Whatever our differences are – race, religion, education, ambition or path – we all want the same thing – To thrive. To live with dignity and empowerment. To help others reach their goals.


Philanthropy is one way businesses, nonprofits, government and individuals in any community find common ground. We all agree –prosperity, education and health are the keys to our communityʼs future well-being

Since our founding in 1981, the goals of the Foundation have remained the same : to coordinate the receipt and investment of charitable contributions , to distribute funds for community needs in a timely and well-researched manner and to serve as a leader and educational resource in encouraging philanthropy in this great city.

As we close 2017, our vision and mission endure. We continue to be a leader in community philanthropy and to build, invest and manage endowment funds to enhance the quality of our community through informed strategic grantmaking.

The Albuquerque Community Foundation would like to acknowledge William P. Lang of the Albuquerque Journal and Starline Printing for the donation of the printing of this report and Kim Jackson Photography for many of the images appearing in this report.

We continue to strive to make sure every philanthropic investment returns the greatest emotional, financial and civic benefit possible. We are committed to conversation, community involvement and investment. We endeavor to protect the spirit of each endowment fund and the grants made from those funds to ensure partnerships are working together Contributions totaled $14,100,000 Earned a 14.5% investment return Assets under management grew to $87,800,000 Awarded $4,800,000 in grants Recognized by Quality New Mexico, New Mexico Excellence Awards, Piñon Award recipient

Why this focus? Because we believe those who have access to opportunity lift themselves. We believe by empowering the makers, the doers and the dreamers in our community, we have the potential to grow and create jobs. We take to heart research that shows 80% of job gains come from small business growth and development.* Our community’s strength is in its passionate small businesses and entrepreneurial spirit. Together, through increased opportunities we are stabilizing families and bringing vitality to our historically struggling neighborhoods.


Common goals require common ground. The Foundation actively partners with many non profit organizations which agree the path to prosperity is individual success and have created programming to meet the challenge. Our public/private cross-sector partnerships continue their endeavors of providing better results, faster. Healthy Neighborhoods ABQ and City Alive are two examples, the first focusing on local sourcing and hiring, the latter supporting homegrown job creation and racial equity through living wage job growth. Partnerships produce outcomes greater than the sum of the parts – they are real and they are measurable.

2017 was the Foundation’s biggest year ever for donations from generous individuals and companies who have collectively supported hundreds of nonprofit organizations and thousands of people from communities throughout the Greater Albuquerque Area. 2017 was also our biggest grantmaking year, with nearly $5 million flowing back to the organiza tions that do the boots-on-the-ground work impacting real people every day. When one prospers, we all prosper. That’s our common ground – strong, secure and leading us all forward. We sincerely thank you for being a part of what we do.

COMMON GROUND Letter from theChair & CEO STEVE KEENE *Center on Budget and Policy Priorities

Steve Keene Randy Royster Chair, Board of Trustees President & CEO

2017 was a pivotal year for the Albuquerque Community Foundation in many ways, but most importantly, it was our first year tracking results from our recent shift into funding “access to economic opportunities.” What does that mean? It means we have a common goal through all our funding fields— Arts & Culture, Economic & Workforce Development, Education, Environmental & Historic Preservation, Health and Human Services of providing access to economic opportunities, and funding long-term systemic change rather than short term solutions, for more residents in our community. We have seen the positive effects of boosting access through community development and workforce enhancement – you’ll read about it throughout this report.

• How can we effectively address the root causes of so many issues our community faces? Creating this overarching grant theme allowed us to address these questions while moving the needle towards prosper ity and self-sufficiency for more Albuquerque residents. The wording of this strategy was critical: we sought to provide access. We understood as a community foundation, we alone could not create economic opportunity nor could we provide economic opportunity, but we could provide access to economic opportunity. We could work with organizations in breaking down the barriers that prevent incarcerated adults from gaining employment. We could support organizations that bolster the creative and environmental economies, increase skills-based learning, promote job training and address mental health needs to reduce homelessness and addiction. Since integrating this strategy, we have seen organizations respond with creative proposals and innovative programs. We have learned nonprofits are eager for new opportunities to tell their stories and are committed to supporting Albu querque’s economic growth in the same way companies, funders and donors are. When we started this process, we asked ourselves: what could providing access to economic opportunities really look like in all of its forms? We had ideas, but we also cautioned ourselves not to be a prescriptive funder. While we offered examples, we also wanted nonprofits to be free enough and creative enough to come to us with their ideas. And they did. Nearly two years into this strategy, we are now starting to see the results of our grantmaking.

• How can we ensure our limited grant dollars are going as far as they can in the community?

Economic Opportunities


In 2016, the Foundation shifted its grant strategy to focus on funding programs and organizations providing access to economic opportunities. This decision was not made lightly – it was the result of a year-long process that began with community convenings and ended with the Foundation’s Grant Committee and Board of Trustees wrestling with answers to the following questions:

• How can we integrate grantmaking in a way that would create systemic change across all sectors in our community?

• What role does philanthropy play in partnering with our local businesses?

When a proposal does not receive funding through the Competitive Grant Program, we take those unfunded pro posals to donor-advised fund holders to offer them more options for their annual grantmaking. We are pleased to report that of the applications received through the 2017 Competitive Grant Program, 80% were funded in some capacity.

The 2017 Competitive Grant Program awarded nearly $410,000 in grants to 38 organizations. Organizations submitted some of the most innovative and competitive proposals the Foundation has reviewed in years. Nonprofits showed how they boost the creative economy through public-private partnership with Albuquerque’s growing brewery scene, build employee pipelines in the healthcare industry, teach homeless youth entrepreneurial skills and train local urban farmers. All of this – and much more –contributes to a vibrant, growing Albuquerque.

In 2015, the Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship Powered by the Albuquerque Community Foundation launched as a partnership between the Albuquerque Community Foundation, the E.W. Kauffman Foundation and the City of Albuquerque. We identified the growth potential in Albuquerque’s entrepreneurial ecosystem, particularly through the diversity of entrepreneurs receiving services through non profits which represented the immigrant community, tech-transfer sector, women entrepreneurs and low-income entrepreneurs. To date, the Mayor’s Prize has granted $600,000 and has contributed to the creation of over 100 businesses and 550 jobs.

Each year, the Foundation fundraises both locally and nationally to create more opportunities for nonprofits to receive funding. Separate from Donor-Advised grants and the Competitive Grant Program, these grants have specific focus areas and result in higher-dollar and higher-impact grants.

In May, My Brother’s Keeper ABQ, in partnership with Innovate + Educate hosted a job ready hire fair to place 500 young men of color in quality jobs in our city.

As a result, the Foun dation engaged in a partnership with the na tional My Brother’s Keeper Alliance and the City of Albuquerque to launch the Próspero! Award, a $100,000 grant program that provides educational advancement and employment opportunities for young men of color. Focus ar eas included: college readiness, GED, ESL, soft skills development, interviewing skills, citizenship, financial literacy, mentorship, internships and apprenticeships.

One of the great privileges of working in the nonprofit community is seeing how organic cross-sector partnerships evolve from a spark of inspiration or a visionary idea for the future. We strive to not only play an important role in these part nerships, but to also invest grant dollars to support the long-term work and sustainability of these partnerships. For the fifth anniversary of the Great Grant Giveaway, we highlighted and raised funds for large-scale partnerships poised to have lasting effects on Albuquerque’s economy and nonprofit community. Each of the featured partnerships was built on several nonprofits working together for a common cause.

GREAT GRANT New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired


Upon Dr. Gerald Rubin’s passing in 1991, the Foundation was entrusted to administer the Eye Associates Gerald and Alice Rubin Memorial Foundation Fund. Since 2005, the fund has grant ed over $500,000 to organizations supporting eye care, eye education and research, and medical, physiological and mental disorders. In 2017, the fund advisors allocated a grant to support the New Mexico School for the Blind’s technology lending library. The library provides blind or visually impaired students (ages 5 to 22) access to technology that might not otherwise be available to them. Because there are many types of blindness or visual impairment, having access to various forms of technology –assistive tablets and computers – allows the student to choose what works best for them. This enhances both their learning capabilities and skills, in addition to their future employability.

As a CEO, Mitch Coven’s job is to grow and care for his employees and company, Vitality Works. For over three decades, Vitality Works has sourced raw materials from around the world and created leading edge herbal and nutraceutical sup plements under its own label and the labels of both health practitioners and large brands.

Vitality Works


Part of Vitality Works’ success, he says, is the support the company has received from the community. In the past, Vitality Works has supported nonprofit organizations important to its industry and others for which Coven personally has an affinity. The Vitality Works Fund at the Albuquerque Community Foundation, established in 2017, sets up a legacy of philanthropy Coven sees as important for the company as a way to do the right thing in the community. “It took a village to create our success. We’ve gotten good support from the State, County and City, and we’ve reinvested heavily into the company. As the company has matured and become financially strong, I’ve reflected on our core values,” he says. “One of them is stewardship. Another is integrity. The responsible thing is to give back to the local community that has helped us expand and succeed. One way is financially. And we’ve chosen the Albuquerque Community Foundation as the vehicle.” In 2017, Vitality Works established a corporate fund to support nonprofit organizations in the community. Vitality Works’ employees will review funding requests the Foundation brings to them and look at organizations with which employ ees have a connection. It is an opportunity to involve employees in the community in a way they couldn’t or wouldn’t necessarily do personally. At first, the company thought about setting up an internal group or a separate foundation, but quickly realized they are too busy and that the learning curve would be too steep. “We looked at reporting requirements and vetting the nonprofits and asked ourselves, why not let the experts do all of that?” he says. “The ser vice the Foundation pro vides is reasonable and they made it easy for us to do something that is also fiscally smart by donating the money.” Coven sets a challenge to other successful businesses. “If you care about the community that has helped you become successful, it’s your responsibility to give back. You can’t be healthy personally without a healthy community. We’re all obligated, once our home base is taken care of, to help make the community healthy.”

Susie’s family and its history were important to her and made up a great part of who she was. Giving back was a part of the legacy she inherited from her parents who immigrated to Chicago and married after fleeing Nazi Austria in 1939. They both grew up with the love of music, opera, arts and their Jewish heritage. They brought that passion to Albuquerque and tried to perpetuate a Vienna lost. They treasured both their U.S. and Albuquerque citizenship and tried to repay their debt of gratitude by giving back to the community.

In her later years, she volunteered for the Assistance League of Albuquerque and was a member of the B’nai Israel Choir. After Susie’s retirement, she worked parttime in bookkeeping for her brother Jim who was then President of Kurt’s Camera Corral.

Susie was a graduate of Highland High School and the University of Colorado. She returned to the University of New Mexico to earn her Master’s degree in guidance and counseling. She had a 35-year career with the Albuquerque Public Schools, the last 25 years of which she worked at Jefferson Middle School as a counselor. She was very dedicated to and compassionate about her job and students.

Success can be defined in many ways, for Priyanka Jain ...

Success can be defined in many ways. For Priyanka Jain, Foundation scholarship alumna, she defines success as improving the lives of others, one day at a time. As a 2016 Woodcock Family Education Scholarship recipient, Priyanka attends the University of Notre Dame pursuing a degree in Chemical Engineering. After graduation, she plans on attending medical school to become an orthopedic surgeon.

Throughout her studies, Priyanka has been working on several projects at the University of Notre Dame, from the design of a new battery to eliminate blackouts in California to researching a new antibiotic to help fight antibodies of those who are sick. Not only is Priyanka proud of her Albuquerque roots, she is also grateful for the support of her community. A graduate of La Cueva High School, Priyanka’s scholarship from the Foundation has supported her life dream to attend a private institution with an amazing engineering program. In 2016, Priyanka was a finalist of the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair hosted by Massachusetts Institute of Technology, which earned her the honor of having a minor planet named after her. Creating common ground is a central focus of Priyanka’s studies – her passion is to give back to society. Priyanka volunteered this past summer at a hospital in Peru. During her ten-week stint, she educated local parents and children about the importance of dental hygiene and eating healthy.

Priyanka believes it can be difficult to move forward without acknowledging those who have supported her – those who have made her who she is today. Her strong desire to support the Albuquerque community after graduation is important to her as are her plans to improve the health of others through science and technology. Not only is the Foundation proud to have Priyanka as part of the sch alumni roster, but her success will bring New Mexico and Albuquerque to the forefront. Keep your eye out for this girl wonder – she is already changing the world.




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 place of stronger partnerships for future generations.

Working together with the Foundation, volunteers assisted in making decisions about the competitive grant and student aid programs in 2017, standing with us on the common ground of philanthropy in Albuquerque. As in years past, they contributed hundreds of hours of their precious time, bringing their unique knowledge and genuine enthusiasm to the often-grueling process of reviewing many more requests from both nonprofit organizations and students than could be funded. For the third year, live pitches from grant applicants afforded volunteers the opportunity to ask and answer questions. As always, everyone’s generous hearts and honest intentions to do good for the community shone through. The Foundation hosted multiple separate volunteer advisory committees to review requests for funding and make recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

Public-Pueblo Partnership: Placitas Wild

The Foundation made its first grant to Placitas WILD in support of a groundbreaking publicpueblo partnership. This unique collaboration between a public nonprofit organization and the San Felipe Pueblo strives to protect wild horses in the Placitas community from danger, while providing economic opportunities for the San Felipe Pueblo as its members work to safely maintain the heath of the horses. In working with the community to protect the horses, the San Felipe Pueblo has also recognized the possibility of growing a sustainable green industry for tribal members. Placitas WILD employs members of the San Felipe Pueblo to care for the animals, with the San Felipe Land Management Department even sending staff to the University of Wyoming to learn methods of humanely and safely managing the herd. As the partnership evolves, Placitas WILD and the Pueblo envision an opportunity where guests and tourists can visit the preserve to learn about the native land and the importance of preserving the animals and culture that exist within Albuquerque’s pueblo communities.



As always, we are better together.

The Social Giving Club creates common ground by solving community challenges and working collaboratively with like-minded, philanthropic individuals. In its first two years, the Social Giving Club has made important grants to two innovative nonprofit organizations. As a result, members have collectively impacted the community.

Social Giving Club


In 2017, the Social Giving Club made its annual grant of $25,000 to St. Martin’s HopeFound, whose goal is to rapidly re-house families with children, paying rent for up to six months and providing intensive case management to help them pay their own rent within six months. Similar programs across the country consistently demonstrate an 85-90% success rate.

Future Fund


Future Fund is a collaborative giving circle comprised of young leaders from various sectors who share the love of philanthropy and community engagement. Every member (or couple) contributes $200 annually to support worthy causes. Future Fund celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2017. In addition to granting $19,000 to local nonprofits, the group hosted several one-of-a-kind social events and volunteer activities. In 2017, Future Fund focused on strengthening community partnerships with other young professional groups, such as Young Professionals of Albuquerque, Albuquerque Involved, Young Nonprofit Professionals Network of NM and UNM Young Alumni. Future Fund, along with these groups, co-hosted a lip sync competition at Marble Brewery and awarded a $1,000 grant check to the winner’s nonprofit of choice. Members also partnered with Albuquerque Involved to serve lunch to those in need at The Rock at NoonDay.

Concours du Soleil, an annual fundraising event organized by the Foundation and five local business men called the “Cinco Amigos” celebrated the 11th annual Concours du Soleil in September. The Cinco Amigos joined other philanthropists to support economic development, job growth and entrepreneurship during this event.

The 2017 Gala theme, Moonlight and Motorcars at the Oasis, showcased pristine automobiles from classic to exotic, nestled in an evening surrounded with intriguing oasis treasures. All while raising funds to support worthy causes. This year’s gala and crowdfunding netted $190,000.

Jan Augenstein was from Hamilton, Ohio. She had dyslexia, and though educational approaches to treat dyslexia in the 1950s were limited, she was determined to succeed. She excelled academically at Miami University, and continued to pursue music as a coloratura soprano. Jan sang in the Miami University Men’s Glee Club, becoming the only female ever to go on tour with them at the time. After college, she moved to San Francisco to teach elementary school, returning to Miami University to complete her own Master’s degree in student counseling. In 1970, Jan met Lee at Miami University, where he was a professor of German, on a blind date arranged by mutual friends. One date turned into a whirlwind romance and marriage just two months after their meeting. On the day of their wedding, Lee and Jan went off in separate directions to continue their educations – Lee to the University of Kansas to defend his doctoral thesis, and Jan to Italy as part of an opera workshop. Months later, they returned to Ohio to begin married life Followingtogether.their retirements in 1994, both from Miami University (she eventually became Development Director), they moved to Albuquer que, enchanted by the blue sky and abundant sunshine. They enjoyed traveling together, visiting 110 countries and all seven continents over the next 25 years. Both were active in Saint Andrews Presbyterian Church and volunteered with several charities, sharing their energy and insights and community spirit. Jan was also a volunteer in the Fine Arts Department at UNM, and Steelbridge and community fund to help single mothers in need. Jan died in 2013. After her death, Lee remained active and involved in the community until he passed last year –ever interested, curious and always with a mischievous twinkle in his eye. The Jan Augenstein-Miller and Marion Lee Miller Fund continues the legacy begun during their lifetimes by supporting grants to nonprofit organizations to provide food and shelter for homeless women and children and programs to assist battered and abused women and children. Miller Fund Continuing a Legacy of Philanthropy


Family stories of Marion Lee Miller tell of a happy, industrious, curious and occasionally mischievous boy. He became interested in German after reading German grammar books in Lebanon, Ohio, despite the social un ease after World War II. His high school English teacher encouraged his study, and eventually he received both undergraduate and Master’s degrees in German Language and Literature from Miami University in Oxford, Ohio. Despite his proficiency in German, when Lee joined the Air Force in 1956, the military put him in flight school. Chronically air sick, he was assigned to the next logical place – Japan as part of the Military Police. Throughout his life, he was interested in people, regardless of origin or opinion, taking pictures wherever he went.


Sue spent her early childhood in Rogers, Arkansas. Her family moved to Albuquerque in 1938. With the exception of a year at Christian College in Missouri, she spent the rest of her life in Albuquerque. She graduated from Albuquerque High in 1943, and after her year away, studied at the University of New Mexico where she was an Alpha Chi Omega. There she met Paul Daulton, whom she married in December of 1946, shortly after he returned from serving in the south Pacific with the U.S. Navy.

Sue passed away in 2017, adding significantly to the Daulton Family Fund in her will. This legacy will ensure that the community organizations and institutions she and Paul supported during their lifetimes will continue.


Paul and Sue’s son, Tom, continues to participate in his family’s charitable giving and vol unteers for many UNM Alumni activities. Tom and his wife Jan have three children of their own, Neal, Mary Cole and Carter. Paul and Sue balanced their work ethic by playing just as hard. They were founding members of the Tennis Club of Albuquerque, loved to golf and visit their cabin in Pendaries. Both were passionate followers of Lobo athletics, holding football and basketball season tickets beginning in the early 1960s. Sue regretfully gave up her basketball season tickets after the 2015 season. In her later years, Sue loved bridge, and routinely beat Tom at gin rummy. And her grandchildren would like to point out that she held the house record on the pinball machine. Sue was also passionate about supporting UNM’s College of Nursing and was recognized at their 60th anniversary as a special friend.

At the time, she said, “I am very fortunate to be able to contribute financial help to the programs that have made a positive difference in our community.” Paul and Sue Daulton shared more than 60 years together nurturing their family, growing their business and building philanthropy in New Mexico. Their story is one of caring and sharing com mon ground with their community. The Daulton family, along with Sue’s brother John C. Marshall and his wife, were partners and owners of the 7Up Bottling Company in Albu querque for many years, building the business significantly before selling it in 1980.

When Paul Daulton passed away in 2007, his wife Sue continued the family’s philanthropic legacy by generously giving to a number of organizations – UNM football and basketball, the UNM College of Nursing, a number of UNM Presidential Scholarships, the Central United Methodist Church and the New Mexico Boys Ranch, among many others. In 2008, she established The Daulton Family Foundation Endowment Fund to honor her husband and benefit the important causes that mattered to them both.




In advance of his 90th birthday this year, Dick reached out with a request. He wanted to know about any new early childhood education programs in Albuquerque. In honor of his birthday, Dick sought to make a meaningful grant to help children start on the right path in their education – acknowledging that early childhood education offers stability and positions children for long-term success in various aspects of life.

Dick wound up making a grant to Partnership for Community Action (PCA), an organization that works primarily with families with young children between 0 and 8 years old. Of the families PCA directly serves, 90% are His pano/Latino, approximately 87% are immigrant families and speak Spanish as their primary language.

Dick follows each organization’s progress by attending update meetings to hear about their results. “The need for early child hood education may have started in private hands, but it has expanded to public organizations like state and national legislatures. That’s one of the benefits of publicizing what a private organization can do to influence a public one. That’s the role of a community foundation as well, they publicize and promote. And the Albuquerque Community Foundation does a good job with that.”

Dick is supporting the Social Enterprise Center, the next phase in PCA’s growth. The Center will benefit vulnerable children and families in the South Valley by providing over 50 living wage jobs with benefits and dual-generation support services on a family-friendly jobs campus. The Center will also include a 3,000 sq. ft. family resource center providing holistic and family-centered approaches to root causes of poverty in the community. Two additional commercial buildings will house employee-owned business enterprises including a dual-language early childhood development center and training space.

Richard “Dick” Kirschner has had a deep interest in early childhood education since the late 1960s, sparked by his company’s national evaluation of a pioneering program in that field: Head Start.

The Kirschner Family Fund established by Richard Kirschner and Mary Oertel-Kirschner, in 2016, continues Dick’s support of early childhood education.

Dick made a second grant to Horizons Albuquerque to support its work with low-income students and their families in summer programs to mitigate learning loss outside the school year.

“That project got me interested in the impact of early childhood education. I saw that the earlier the intervention, the greater the impact,” he says. “Now there is a general recognition of the value of investing in early childhood education. I’ve talked in the past with the State Legislature about it, and they seem to support it, too. That’s wonderful.”

Now in its second year, the Foundation’s Impact Investing Committee continues to pursue local investments that support programs to: • Stimulate entrepreneurial initiatives and economic development • Improve the lives of low income people through the creation and retention of jobs offering living wages and benefits • Provide access to affordable capital • Offer affordable housing • Provide quality education • Enhance the quality of life in the Greater Albuquerque Area The Foundation’s second two impact investments were made this year:


Homewise, a nonprofit organization focused on first time home ownership pur chased the Orpheum Theatre Building on Second Street and Coal in Downtown Albuquerque. A low interest loan from the Foundation supported renovations to revitalize the building to include a community classroom/performance space, artist studios, apartments, gallery space and the Homewise Albuquerque home ownership headquarters. The Foundation’s Impact Investment Committee found this project to be an important piece of Downtown revitalization.

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 less. This option helps you avoid capital gains tax.

Real Estate


Life Insurance

For 36 years, the Foundation has served as a trusted philanthropic advisor for individuals, families and businesses. We can 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 ensure that every dollar donated makes the most impact for all of us.

Becoming a Philanthropist

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


We offer a variety of fund types. This allows your gift to benefit the programs, individuals, focus areas or organi zations 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. Cash, Check or Credit Card

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

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

Our work leads us to many discoveries here in Albuquerque. 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, addressing your concerns, and making it easy to engage with your community as a philanthropist. We will help you give in a way that is both deeply meaningful and effective.


Charitable Remainder Trust


Naming the Albuquerque Community Foundation as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy enables you to create a charitable legacy without using cash and other assets you may want to pass 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.

With a charitable remainder trust, you can 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. Charitable Lead Trust


Retirement Account

Field-of-Interest Fund

Impact Fund

You can select one of the Foundation’s interest areas – Arts & Culture; Economic & Workforce Development; Education; Environmental & Historic Preservation; or Health and Human Services. Through the Competitive Grant Program, the Foundation awards grants to effective organizations and programs in your selected field.

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

Administrative Fund

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.

A charitable lead trust allows you to 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.

Charitable Bequest

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 be added to an existing fund. A bequest will reduce estate taxes and grow your charitable legacy.

Life Insurance

Endow your partnership with the Foundation by creating an administrative fund that will support the work of the Foundation forever.

Now & Forever Fund

This option is ideal for those who wish to play an active role in supporting multiple organizations and programs throughout the year. Our staff can help identify organizations and programs, and provide you with grantmaking and administrative support.

Donor-Advised Fund

For those who want to see their philanthropic dollars make both an immediate and a perpetual impact, this is the perfect vehicle. Half of the annual contributions are available to fund grants now, while the other half are added to the Forever Fund for annual distributions.

A group contributes to a single fund focused on a shared cause, with grants recommended by a member or rep resentative advisory committee. Philanthropy makes everyone happy!

Student Aid Fund


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.

Donor-Designated Fund

Grants from these funds provide a reliable annual income stream to one or more of your favorite organizations, forever. Collaborative Fund


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 process.

How to Apply

Applying for a Grant

Other Grants

74 73

The Competitive Grant Program begins with a brief grant application. A preliminary grant committee reviews proposals and then invites a group of applicants to the second round of the application process. During the second round, organizations give live grant presentations in front of a grant panel, allowing time for panelists to ask informed and in-depth questions. Complete application criteria and guidelines are available on the Foundation’s website at albuquerquefoundation.org. Criteria, guide lines and deadlines are posted on the Foundation’s website in January of each year.

The Foundation has grouped these endowment funds into six general fields-of-interest: Arts & Culture, Economic & Workforce Development, Education, Environmental & Historic Preservation, Health and Human Services.

Throughout the year, the Foundation also makes grants from other types of funds that are not part of the Competitive Grant Program. Funds may be designated for a specific organization or program within a nonprofit. Others are donor-advised funds with donors actively supporting the organizations and charitable projects of their choice. 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.

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 repre sented. Requests for funding are reviewed by diverse 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.

Grant Application Process

Chosen New Mexico's Outstanding Philanthropic Organization by the Association of Fund ProfessionalsRaising

Frederick H. Goff, a brilliant Cleveland businessman, hatched the idea of a "community trust.” His vision was to pool the charitable resources of Cleveland's philanthropists into a single endowment for the betterment of the city. The interest would forever be distributed to improve lives 1980

“Community Foundations have been called the wave of the future, but they really are the wave of the present. Had we established a foundation for our community’s future 50 years ago, would we have foreseen the needs of the present: teenage alcohol and drug abuse treatment or teenage pregnancy programs, immigration, domestic violence shelters, the homeless. Can we predict the grant recipients which will be reported in the ACF’s annual report in 2033? No one knows for certain, but we now have a mechanism for not only peering into the future but preparing for it.” Those words – written nearly 30 years ago – represented the vision ACF had for itself and for its community as a whole. It is a vision of legacy under which the foundation continues to operate: to help people who wish to do good do better, regardless of the environments and challenges of the time 2008
