WE AREWE ARE
Here at the Albuquerque Community Foundation, the city’s diversity shines in the hundreds of donors, grantees and funds we are privileged to be a part of. We see the power of community, people who come together to build and be a part of something greater than an generations, platforms, areas of interest, politics, ideologies and cultural boundaries and frameworks. With your help, we are able to reach into people’s lives, into the things that matter most to them.
• 2014 Report
Albuquerque Foundation to the
Albuquerque Albuquerque Albuquerque!
Albuquerque has staked its claim in history and in the future as well. We each have a vision for what we want our future to look like. We want clear air, a clean river and space to enjoy nature. We want places where art is celebrated, where we can learn to dance, learn to create. We envision for ourselves a city that has opportunity to grow a business, where jobs are diverse and the workforce is plentiful. We imagine a city with access to health care and where residents are not at risk for hunger or homelessness.
Albuquerque is known as a “melting pot” kind of town. Its early history is full of Spanish explorers, railroad workers, Native American farmers, immigrants and travelers, cowboys, entrepreneurs and city folk with a romanticized view of the Wild West.
All of us – we are Albuquerque. Thank you for your work, your giving and your investment in this community.
“We like it here because we’re on top of the WORLD , in a way; and because we are not stifled and smothered and hemmed in by buildings and trees and traffic and people. We like it because the SKY is so bright and you can see so much of it. And because out here you actually see the CLOUDS and the stars and the storms, instead of just reading about them in the newspapers.” Pyle Albuquerque?”-1942
• Together with the “Cinco Amigos” coordinated the 8th annual Concours du Soleil fundraising event netting a recordbreaking $207,000 providing funding for the “Driving to the Future” computer lab in the Epicenter @ Innovate ABQ

From its inception in 1981, the goals of the Albuquerque Community Foundation were to coordinate the receipt and investment of charitable contributions, to distribute funds for community needs in a timely and well researched manner and serve as a leader and educational resource in encouraging philanthropy. We continue to strive to make sure that every philanthropic investment returns the greatest emotional, financial and civic benefit possible. We are committed to research, conversation, community involvement and investment, and to protecting the spirit of each of our endowment funds and grants.

During my year as chair of the Foundation's Board of Trustees, I had the opportunity to work with great men and women who, like me, are grateful to be a part of this community. We are committed to seeing our city revive its economy and grow jobs. Each of us is invested in educating the next generation to help them reach their own goals for employment and prosperity.
As you will read on pages 35-41, the Foundation continues to fund nonprofit organizations serving our community, including groups that provide early childhood education, food for seniors, animal welfare and clean water in the Rio Grande. This year, we focused our Impact Grant on education specifically leading to employment after graduation and we continue to track the progress of the graduates to ensure the program is effective.
As many have heard me say, citizens who love this city can't sit back and wait for someone else to create change. It is up to everyone to invest in the future, to join together in the powerful momentum that is already on the horizon. After all, WE are Albuquerque.
Albuquerque. I grew up here. I am a third-generation business owner; my family has prospered and so we've invested ourselves in this city to show our appreciation for its support.
Through our annual fundraising event, Concours du Soleil, we partnered with Innovate ABQ, funding a hightech computer lab, "Driving to the Future," opening its doors in 2015 in the Epicenter @ Innovate ABQ. The lab will be available for organizations seeking technology training for those who seek a career in this fast-growing industry. More than ever before, we are collaborating with local government, businesses and individuals who believe in collective impact, the power of working together to make lasting change.

4 2014 ANNUAL REPORT
Letter from President & CEO, Randy Royster
Throughout this year’s report, you’ll see evidence of both diversity and commonality. At the Foundation, the city’s diversity shines in the hundreds of donors, grantees and funds we are privileged to be a part of. We see the power of community, people who come together to build and be a part of something greater than themselves.
For me, “We are Albuquerque” generates a sense of nostalgia and pride that resonates from deep inside. Years ago, I moved away from Albuquerque for a time, always believing I would return to raise my children and grandchildren.
• We will deliver our services through operational excellence and efficiency.
Each of us has a reason to love living here. I promise you that I, along with the Board and Staff of the Foundation, are committed to making this city a better place for all its residents.
There is no denying our community and world-at-large are changing. In our community, the population is aging, inequities in opportunity are widening and public resources available to meet our neighbors’ needs are shrinking. Social, business and political forces are also at play, requiring us to adapt our approaches to meet the needs of our community in new and innovative ways. While demographics and other indicators suggest that these changes will only accelerate, we want to assure you the work of the Foundation will remain relevant in changing times. We believe opportunities can be created from these challenges.
We are committed to using our resources and expertise to strengthen the greater Albuquerque community we serve. We also believe our work is amplified when we work in partnership with others, as we have been proud to do this year, more than ever before. We strive to build on our reputation as an excellent service organization and an action-oriented, engaged partner in the following ways:
Thank you for partnering with the Foundation,
• We will be flexible to monitor the needs of the community and find ways to work toward solutions;
• We will be active listeners and conveners looking to find solutions in the community through donors and other organizations;

Cornerstones Community Partnerships
The Albuquerque Community Foundation is a way that individuals can make a long-term difference for the causes they care about. We work with individuals to support local organizations that are improving our health, education, youth programs, the arts, animal welfare, the environment and economic development. Since 1981, we’ve been helping people establish permanent funds to support our community and making grant investments to organizations that create a stronger more vibrant future for all of us. Today, we manage nearly $70 million of community assets that help support the Greater Albuquerque Area. Alone we can make a difference, but together we can transform this community.

Every fund is different and customized to meet the donor’s philanthropic goals and the community’s needs. A few of the motivating factors donors have for establishing their fund is the intent to give anonymously, to give to multiple organizations, to pay back, to educate, a passion for a single cause, the desire to create an annual income stream for a favorite organization, to memorialize a loved one and sheer gratitude.

Peggy Cavett Walden was an artist, an architect, a volunteer and a teacher. She was also a philanthropist, whose estate was meant to ensure that future generations have access to art. When Peggy passed away, the Foundation became home to her vision for the future.
Peggy’s mind was always working, creating, planning and retooling. She saw art and potential in everything – from old milk jugs to the people she encountered. She believed that all anyone or anything needed was opportunity. Peggy tried her hand at just about every type of art and design: weaving, fabric painting, tie-dye, batik, paper crafts, origami, ceramics, jewelry, interior design, architecture and exhibit and display. She loved it all and wanted to master everything.
Peggy Cavett-Walden & Professor Jerrold Walden Fund for Art & Music
“She loved children and felt that design and art had a transformational effect, because it had this kind of effect on her”, said one friend.
Some of Peggy’s artwork and belongings are on permanent display at the Foundation in a tribute to her incredible life. “She had total tenacity and a tremendous spirit,” said Geraldine Forbes Isais, dean of UNM’s School of Architecture and Planning, who had become friends with Peggy in the last ten years. “I feel like we owe her this. We owe her a little bit of respect for everything she did for all of us.”
Born in 1925, Peggy graduated from the University of Texas at Austin in 1953 with a degree in architecture, and she later became a licensed architect in the states of Texas and New Mexico. She considered herself a modernist and her aesthetic was similar to Frank Lloyd Wright’s. She earned her master’s degree in art from the University of New Mexico in 1967, and she later taught art at the University of Albuquerque, as well as at Mercer University and Wesleyan College in SheGeorgia.was married to Jerrold Walden, who became a beloved law professor at UNM. Theirs was a loving and tender marriage until Jerrold’s death in 1976. He called her Pegsie and she called him Honey. He supported her every artistic endeavor, cheering her on when she had exhibitions at Santa Fe’s Museum of International Folk Art, the Museum of Albuquerque, and across the country, including North Dakota and Texas.
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 designated for your heirs. 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. Take that amount as an annual tax deduction.
The simplest types of charitable gifts may be the easiest to give.
Charitable Lead Trust Place cash or property into a trust that pays a fixed amount to the Foundation for the number of years you select. Once the period ends, the assets held by the trust are transferred to the beneficiaries you name. In some cases, you receive substantial reduction in federal gift and estate taxes.
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.
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.
For 33 years, the Foundation has served as a trusted philanthropic advisor for individuals, families and businesses. We assist you whenever you need us, providing solutions and services tailored to your objectives. Additionally, we work with our community partners, grantees and other interested partners to discover how we can make the most impact with each dollar donated.
Charitable Remainder Trust 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 have selected. You receive income tax benefits for the year in which you establish your trust.
When we delve into the makeup of our city, we see that visions for the future are personal and that giving is often connected with individual values and goals. The Foundation will work with you to establish a charitable giving experience that will address your concerns while making it easy to give so you can enjoy the benefits of your philanthropy. We will help you give in a way that is both deeply meaningful and effective.
A variety of fund types 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, with a short fund agreement and a single gift, or grown over a two - to five-year period. Additional gifts can be made to your fund at any time. Cash, check or credit card
Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds
We can help you turn a home, a business or land into a charitable gift.
The simplest gift is a bequest in your will or trust that directs specific assets or a percentage of your estate to be used to establish a fund or to be added to an existing fund. A bequest will reduce estate taxes while growing your charitable legacy.
Give Today Give Tomorrow
Double taxation on retirement plan withdrawals decreases their value for your heirs. Consider providing other assets to heirs and naming the Albuquerque Community Foundation as the beneficiary of your retirement accounts. You can avoid taxes and preserve your assets for the good of your community.
Becoming a Philanthropist 16 Getting Started
The Dozier Family Fund will benefit the arts, a homage to David’s parents, Vi and Forrest Dozier of Carlsbad, NM, who were both artists and understood the benefits the arts provide to a community. In addition, the couple plans to grow the fund to include programs that are near to their hearts. Their son, who struggles with Asperger’s, inspired them as he broke through barriers with the help of great teachers and organizations that understood the need for different teaching techniques based on an individual child’s needs. In the future, they would like to include funding for programs for children with similar special needs. Today, their son has found his place, his own passion for life and is living and working on his own.
“Do things for your community that have lasting impact,” she would say. And she led by example so that her son grew to value the life-changing effect of small contributions. It is this ripple effect that David and Debbie Dozier have worked toward since their early days with the Foundation, as members of its young donors group, the Future Fund. The Doziers believe that everybody has the opportunity to give, to create change, and to help shape communities. David says his parents taught him how to live modestly while putting money toward something with lasting value. David and Debbie knew that they wanted to establish an endowment fund at some point, and this was their year.
The Doziers and their fund are proof of what investment in community means and can be. They are proof that humble beginnings can build larger-than-life generosity. They have a vision for their city that is bigger than they are, bigger than circumstance. And that’s no small thing. The Dozier Fund
When David Dozier was growing up, his mom gave him advice that had a profound and lasting impact.

June shrugged off those who told her she “couldn’t” do something. A lifelong heart problem prevented her from achieving her goal of joining the U.S. Army – for a time. In the end, June got her wish and served along with America’s bravest during World War II. She later became a teacher and helped scores of people throughout her career, including helping to establish New Mexico’s first gifted program for students.
June Schutzberger Endowment Fund
One of the nonprofits June elected to support, Doctors Without Borders, is pictured here.
June Schutzberger was a teacher, not only by trade but by nature. And her legacy proves that for June, teaching others to give was a way of life – and beyond. June died Jan. 24, 2014, leaving behind waves of generosity that will continue to spread throughout our community, forever.
The Foundation is honored that June chose us to be a part of her legacy. We know that her life of generosity will continue to benefit our community for generations to come.

meets the needs of medically fragile and profoundly disabled children and young adults. Sixteen children live there full-time, receiving occupational therapy, physical therapy, specialized language therapy, as well as spiritual guidance and life skills. Although each have an extreme level of disability and need total daily care, their quality of life is paramount and each is able to communicate in their own way. With “hand on hand” assistance, students participate in “Art from the Heart” as shown here.
The Ray Zimmer Heritage Society, named in honor of one of our founders and first board president, is designed for the future of our city. It is Albuquerque, both present and not yet. The Society recognizes donors whose far-sighted generosity will benefit future generations through deferred gifts and estate plans. These individuals have made a commitment 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’ generosity and thoughtfulness in creatively caring about the future of this city. When Heritage Society donors create a gift of this kind, they are doing so because they believe in Albuquerque and in the power of its people. The Society is our simple way of acknowledging future benevolence. We also appreciate the gifts of those who wish to remain anonymous.

Over the 30 years of Bob’s commitment to the Foundation, he lived up to every word. In memory of a friend, Bob Stamm
In April of 1984, Bob Stamm wrote a letter to the Foundation accepting his election to the Board of Trustees. He wrote, “the Foundation’s concept appealed to me the first time I knew of it and I am most pleased to become a Trustee.

I am most pleased to be a part of it”.

Perhaps no one exemplifies our city’s potential and present achievements more than do Albuquerque students. Scholarship and financial aid donors give because they believe in the power of education to transform lives. They see a city and its students, both brimming with possibility. They give to honor the memory of a loved one or to promote a particular field of study, a career or an attribute that has a special meaning to them. When you create a scholarship or financial aid fund at the Foundation, you create an opportunity to improve a student’s life and also the lives of their family members for generations to come.

This is Albuquerque: a city of potential. Nowhere do we see that as clearly as when we work with the donors of our Future Fund, a group of generous young people who are committed to making a lasting impact on their city through philanthropy.
Sixteen years ago, the Foundation established the Future Fund, composed of young people and their peers who have a desire to improve their community through philanthropy. At its inception, the fund consisted of 12 couples. Today, it includes more than 200 members with an endowment of almost a half million dollars. These individuals are examples of the future of philanthropy in New Mexico, as well as of the spirit of generosity that is alive among today’s young people. They each have their own reasons for participating. For some, it is because they want to end hunger in their community, while others are motivated by economic development and creating new opportunities for other young people. This is their Albuquerque as much as it is any of ours.

& Donor-Designated Grants
2014 Grant Program
See page 42 for a list of this year’s advisory review committee participants. 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. Donors with donor-designated funds may choose a specific cause or organization. Some donordesignated funds have separate guidelines and committees.
Program grants are distributed through a competitive process across six specific fields-of-interest: Arts & Culture, Economic & Workforce Development, Education, Environmental & Historic Preservation, Health and Human Services.

Grants are driven by results that will bring lasting benefits to our community. 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 grants to nonprofit organizations from endowment funds established specifically to accommodate the community’s changing needs, the Foundation supports projects that are innovative, meet the needs of underserved segments of the community, encourage matching funds, promote cooperation among agencies, empower the disadvantaged and disabled and improve the effectiveness of local charitable organizations. The Foundation is privileged to support nonprofits in their efforts to imagine great things for their

For Grant Programs, Student Aid and Individual Achievement Award Programs 2014 Advisory Review Committee Members
Volunteers assisted in the competitive grant and student aid programs in 2014. They contributed time, thought and knowledge to the process of reviewing requests from nonprofit organizations and from students. These volunteers, listed below, represent all segments of the community and wrestled with the challenge of many more requests for support than could be funded and excellent nominations for our Award Programs. The Foundation convened many separate volunteer advisory committees to review requests for funding and make recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees for final approval.
Application Review Process Who Qualifies How to Apply Other Grants
Applying for a Grant
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 decisions.
Many donors establish endowment funds to respond to the community’s ever-changing 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.
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. Within these fields, the Foundation also has funds addressing specific issues including art education in public 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 communityoriented and responsive to changing and emerging community needs receive the highest priority.
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 large 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.
To be eligible for the Competitive Grant Program, an organization must serve the greater Albuquerque community and be a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt nonprofit organization in good standing or a public educational institution. Grants are not made: to individuals for political or religious purposes; to retire indebtedness; for the payment of interest or taxes; to annual campaigns, endowments, or as emergency funding; to influence legislation or elections; to private foundations and other grant-making organizations; or to organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, creed, gender or sexual orientation.
In 2013, the Competitive Grant Program changed the application process to include an initial submission of a Letter of Intent. Complete application criteria and guidelines are available on the Foundation’s website: albuquerquefoundation.org. Letters of Intent are reviewed and organizations are notified if they are invited to submit a full grant proposal. Criteria, guidelines and deadlines are posted on the Foundation’s website in January of each year.
Many organizations meet the basic requirements to apply for a grant, which makes applying for a grant a highly competitive process.

From the time that Connor Mantsch was a toddler, his family knew he’d change the world. He just saw things in a way that mesmerized adults. He saw the way buildings fit together to make a community. Throughout his childhood, music marked his soul, and his mind was full of compositions and historical facts and deep questions about life. He was joyful and loving, curious and hopeful. And his vision for his future was as meaningful to him as his love for antiquity and history. When Connor died in a plane crash in 2012, his legacy of hope continued. His parents and sisters say that they continue to experience Connor’s peace and love and see him in gifts of butterflies, rainbows and feathers. He was 14 and already had lived more fully than most adults. His interests were many –gardening, soccer, basketball, sledding, learning, the Green Bay Packers and coin collecting, to name a few – but his devotion to each was unwavering and complete. It is this legacy that Connor’s parents, Bryan Mantsch and Shari O'Loughlin hope to pass on to others through the Connor O'Loughlin Mantsch Memorial Fund. Connor lives on in something even more powerful than memory; he lives on in hope, love and generosity. This remarkable young man has already touched so many lives and hearts. His parents hope that the depth of his kindness and character will continue to inspire many more in the community to make the world a better, more beautiful place, just as Connor did.

Friends and family of Nicholas Constantine Nellos established a memorial fund when Nick's young life was tragically ended in July, 2002 due to the random act of violence of two itinerant gang members. The mission of the fund is to foster positive change in the lives of children and adolescents at risk for violent behavior. Grants support educational and direct services for at-risk youth, their families and the community to prevent the tragedy and loss of life caused by violent acts. The Nellos family hopes "that no child at risk for committing violent acts fails to understand the alternatives to this behavior and the impact of the loss of life."

51 Change Award
In 2008, the Foundation introduced the “Change Award” to recognize a nonprofit employee who is always willing to jump in and do whatever needs to be done for the organization at which he or she is employed. This award was created to reward “background” workers, those hidden gems of nonprofits who don’t typically make the news and yet provide extraordinary service to the community. This year, the Change Award is given to Randi Malach of Abrazos Family Support Services.
