Jane’s own passion was paleontology. She volunteered for the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science where she learned that funding for fossil preparation was difficult to secure. The Jane P. Sandoval Fund for Fossil Preparation supports fossil preparation of Triassic and Permian vertebrates and Jane’sinvertebrates.originalgift for the two funds was $348,072. Today the balance of her funds is $344,382. And guess what? The two funds have granted $238,000 to the two organizations the Sandoval’s chose to support, the New Mexico Museum of Natural History Foundation and the APS Arts Program. Paleontology research continues and public school students continue to enjoy arts education thanks to Jane and to the enduring power of endowment.

Jane Sandoval established two funds with the Albuquerque Community Foundation. One, in memory of her late husband, David, for music education in public schools. David attended Eugene Field Elementary School where he credited his early introduction to music with keeping him out of trouble as well as giving him a lifelong appreciation of music.

Our key goal for the Foundation is to maintain relevance as a trusted voice of knowledge and influence within the community. With this in mind, the Foundation surveyed the community to better understand the issues Albuquerque faced, across all sectors of the city. The information collected spoke of a dire economic landscape, which signified the root of nearly all subsequent social issues—in cluding poor education, high crime rates, child welfare concerns and limited access to healthcare. Put simply, Albuquerque suffered from entrenched poverty, making it difficult to attract national businesses and challenging local businesses to grow. In tandem with community conversations, we were observing trends in our city that demonstrated these economic challenges: 25% of children and 18% of the general population lived in poverty and 32% of parents lacked secure employment. Nine of Albuquerque’s 17 zip codes had a poverty rate greater than the national average, with some approaching two and a half times that rate. Albuquerque has struggled to recover from the 2008 recession, and in fact, we were recently ranked last in job growth. These statistics showcased a clear, pressing need: to create and ignite economic and workforce development initia tives for the city to sustain itself. The question we asked our team and our partners was: how can we leverage—and increase—philanthropic dollars to help catalyze economic growth in our community? The Foundation developed an overarching theme that will now guide all avenues of grantmaking: mobilizing individual donors and the local business community to stand behind philanthropic investments in powerful new ways.

For years, community foundations have taken a slightly segregated approach to their work; the development staff engage with donors, communications and marketing staff secure press connections and brand foundation identities and grantmakers allocate philanthropic dollars into the community. While this approach is not necessarily a weakness, it doesn’t prioritize partnership and a shared vision of positive change. In recent years, the Foundation decided to merge these functions under a larger umbrella of Philanthropic Services. We acknowledge creative grantmaking can’t be accomplished without coordination and collaboration. We believe fundraising cannot be sustainable without strategic grantmaking that both addresses community challenges and bolsters opportunities for economic growth.



A Collaborative Effort to Strategically Invest in Albuquerque’s Future


While we’ve just started to see the positive effects of these structural shifts, we’re proud of the possibilities they’ll create. Embracing our own entrepreneurial philosophy, we created a vision, cultivated partnerships to achieve that vision and forged ahead to raise and invest funds to contribute to Albuquerque’s overall success. We did this as a team—an engaged Board with an integrated staff with a shared vision—and through community input. We did this with the belief that philanthropy can only exist in an economically stable community, where people have access to education, healthcare, jobs and opportunities for a sustainable future. We did this together and we can’t wait to go even further—in partnership with you.Carl

This year, we introduced the concept of providing access to economic opportunities within all fields-of-interest of our grantmaking. The results have been transformative both for us and the Albuquerque community—not only within our grantmaking programs, but by increasing donor gifts to the Foundation. This has also helped place the Foundation’s voice and vision in prominent platforms throughout the community and on the national stage. For the first time in the history of the Foundation, we have successfully integrated the internal roles of fundraising, communications and grantmaking to achieve a result that has positioned us as an influencer in philanthropic investments and in the revitalization of our community. We are now, truly, partners within our organization and with the community as a whole. We’ve seen the result of these efforts stretch beyond our walls, opening opportunities. We now have a voice and presence in public-private community partnerships like City Alive, Healthy Neighborhoods Albuquerque and in the ongoing efforts to bring the biotech industry to New Mexico. These partnerships demonstrate that philanthropy is not only enhanced but becomes more of a critical component to a community’s overall economic, social and cultural health and well-being.

Why are we embarking on this idea of investing in programs with “social impact?” With over $600 billion in the endowments of U.S. foundations, the next step is considering how these funds can be put to use—beyond generating income for grantmak ing. We’re excited to take part in the spirit of creativity and originality that’s flowing into philanthropy. This new approach allows philanthropic organizations to unlock a larger share of their capital and deploy it in innovative ways at the local level. Impact investing is becoming a permanent part of the philanthropic toolkit of many community foundations and we feel certain that it will be a valuable part of ours, too.

Verge II.5X The Verge II.5X, a high-growth portfolio venture, is committed to building an innovation-led economy in New Mexico. Consisting of a powerhouse team of professionals who have joined forces to build a portfolio of highgrowth companies based in our state, Verge II.5X is a four-year venture fund, designed to yield serious results and incredible impact. Verge II.5X will focus its investment activity in four specific high-technology sectors: cleantech/energy, electronics/instrumentation, human factors and software-as-a-service (SAAS).

This year, the Foundation’s Board of Trustees authorized a social impact investing initiative to reallocate a portion of endowed assets into social impact investments. We committed to a five-year pilot period where up to $2.5 million will be invested in programs that stimulate entrepreneurial initiatives and economic development. These programs will improve the lives of low income people through the creation of living-wage jobs with benefits and access to affordable capital, affordable housing and quality education. We know these social impact programs will enhance the quality of life in our city.




Our first two investments were made in 2016. Those investments supported the work of the following two efforts: ABQid The Accelerator is a partnership formed to make investments in early-stage, high-growth companies. Operated by ABQid, The Accelerator was created with the belief there is substantial untapped entrepreneurial potential in the Albuquerque area and that training, support and seed investments are necessary to realize that potential. Selected companies will receive resources including three months of intensive coaching in a variety of entrepreneurial skills.

Las Huertas Farmer Training

The Trolley Tour is one of the Foundation’s favorite ways to bring donors to visit various nonprofits in the city. As a fun, social way for donors to see and experience the work of our grantees, Trolley Tours cruise the streets of our city, visiting neighborhood nonprofits. The intention behind the sunny, open-air tours is to help donors connect with the organizations we support, seeing them and their work in an up close and personal way.



Las Huertas Farmer Training is a skills develop ment program operated by Rio Grande Communi ty Farm. It is dedicated to training both current and aspiring producers in organic farming techniques, here in the high desert of New Mexico. Las Huertas focuses on minimizing barriers faced by the young and disadvantaged people interested in farming and agriculture.

NMSL&RHS (New Mexico Steam Locomotive & RailRoad Historical Society) is a nonprofit organization formed in the mid 1990s and staffed solely by dedicated volunteers and train-enthusi asts. Their mission is to fully restore the Baldwin 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive (2926) to operational sta tus, while also promoting and educating the pub lic about the relationship between our state’s eco nomic development and rail transportation. In the not-too-distant-future, we’re confident that, with the hard work of this organization, the thunder of 2926 and the wail of her whistle will be heard again in Albuquerque.

Over the coming years, the Rashaps will gather as a family to determine how the fund will help support local causes. “As the children grow and their interests change, we will be able to de cide as a family what the greatest needs in our community are and then do something about it. How cool is that?”

In addition to the positive impact the Rashap Family Fund will have on Albuquerque, their approach to strategic giving will hopefully inspire other families to explore their own unique approach to philanthropy. Rashaps: Four Family Members - One Thoughtful Approach to Giving

After a few meetings with Foundation staff, Brian and Krista decided to form a family fund. “We were so impressed with how easy the entire process was and with how genuinely interested the staff at the Foundation was in helping us figure out an approach to giving that was best for us.”

Philanthropy is a family affair for the Rashaps, and in 2016, it also became a permanent fixture when Brian, his wife Krista and their two children Shelby and Ethan established the Rashap Family Fund. Each of the family members has followed their own path to philanthropy. Brian, who oversees Intel facilities throughout North America, has been a non profit donor, board member and a mentor at var ious organizations. Krista has served as a loaned executive for the United Way Campaign and was very active with Girl Scouts and at Bosque School where both Rashap children have attended. From a young age, Shelby and Ethan received an allowance and put 25% towards savings and 25% towards charity. That foundation of giving carried into their later years. Ethan, a freshman at Bosque School, has raised funds to purchase soccer cleats for athletes across the globe, and Shelby, a freshman at the Pratt Institute in New York City, received the New Mexico Chapter of the Association of Fundraising Professionals first ever Outstanding Youth in Philanthropy award when she was seven years old. A chance introduction to the Albuquerque Community Foundation opened the opportunity to braid their individual efforts into a long-term family approach to philanthropy. According to Bri an, “Krista attended the Great Grant Giveaway in 2016 and was excited by the opportunity to approach our family giving more strategically and in a way that would live on well into the future.”

This theme was the result of 12 months of research, community convenings and open communication with donors and non profit partners. We heard from many different voices, and a common concern was made clear from our community partners: our community lacks economic opportunities. By integrating this idea into our grantmaking, the Foundation is contributing to a community-wide effort to assist Albuquerque residents to become successful and prosperous.

With these changes, the Foundation saw an influx of new organizations applying for funds. In 2016, the Foundation awarded grants to 14 new visionary organizations in the Competitive Grant Program. Of these 14, seven groups are first-time Foundation grantees, meaning it is the first time they have received funding through the Foundation in any capacity.

Economic & Workforce Development: Economic & Workforce Development grants support intentional, inventive efforts to ensure a strong local economy. The new field promotes social, economic and environmental growth by sup porting innovative support systems for entrepreneurs and the state’s workforce.

Environmental & Historic Preservation: Environmental & Historic Preservation grants focus on the “environmen tal economy” and the preservation of historic landmarks, attractions, buildings and venues. The “environmental econo my” can be defined as organizations working within the environmental sector to bolster economic growth.

Arts & Culture: Arts & Culture grants focus on two primary funding areas: organizations and programs that provide access to arts and culture for low-income and/or at-risk populations and organizations supporting the Greater Albu querque Metropolitan Area through visual and performing arts.

Education: Education grants focus on supporting at-risk populations to ensure they receive educational opportunities to better the course of their lives and careers. Specific focus areas in this field are: elementary education literacy pro grams, at-risk youth, students with special needs and skills-based education for youth and adults.

Health: Health grants focus specifically on meeting the mental health needs of individuals in the Greater Albuquerque Metropolitan Area. Populations served through mental health programs may range from early childhood to seniors and can include the many diverse populations in between.

Human Services: Human Services grants serve as “springboard” grants to help individuals transition to more self-sus tainable lifestyles. Special focus will be given to organizations and programs that support one or more of the following: parental or guardian skills training, teen pregnancy, job training, independent living and children aging out of foster care.


2016program GrantGrant

The Foundation’s staff and volunteer advisory review committees conduct thorough reviews of the grant applicants’ proposals. See page 66 for a list of this year’s advisory review committee participants.

In addition to integrating this overarching grant theme, the Foundation also reassessed its focus areas in our six main fields-of-interest. We did this to ensure the Foundation was filling funding gaps and investing its philanthropic dollars in areas that represent both critical needs and opportunities for growth.

In 2016, the Foundation introduced significant changes to its Competitive Grant Program. With our new philosophy of solving community challenges at their root, we identified a common theme throughout all fields-of-interest in the Competitive Grant Program: providing access to economic opportunities.

With this theme of economic opportunity, we then sought to leverage the Competitive Grant Program to do two things: one, we wanted to meet the needs of individuals and support their efforts to achieve independent economic stability. And two, we felt it was important to also support our city’s collective economic growth and development.

In the Competitive Grant Program, our grant review panels made a conscious shift to fully fund organizations with their requested amount whenever possible. This means that while the Foundation may have awarded fewer grants, those that were awarded can have a greater impact on the organization, enabling them to do even more great work without struggling to supplement funding shortfalls. This funding philosophy offered an opportunity to build stronger relationships with grantees throughout the fund ing cycle. In the summer of 2016, the Foundation launched Grant Cohorts for grantees in each of the Foundation’s

2016 Grant Application Process

Many of our donors establish field-of-interest endowment funds to respond to Albuquerque’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. An application process is required.

Throughout the year, the Foundation also gives grants from other types of funds that are not part of the Com petitive 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. Working with our ever-growing donor com munity, we take pride in making sure donors feel passionate about the causes they support.

Application Review Process


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

Who Qualifies

Grants are not made: to individuals, for political or religious purposes, to retire indebtedness, for the payment of interest or taxes, to annual campaigns, as endowments or as emergency funding, to influence legislation or elections, to private foundations and other grantmaking organizations, or to organizations that discriminate on the basis of race, creed, gender or sexual orientation.

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

Community philanthropists Jim and Ellen King have been working to build communities for decades. Jim has been an owner of Bradbury Stamm Construction since 1979 and ran the daily operations for over 30 years. He continues to serve as Chairman of the company today, while his wife Ellen manages the company’s philanthropic efforts to support nonprofit organizations across our community. Together with Bradbury Stamm employees and their two daughters Cynthia and Michelle, Jim and Ellen King have had a significant impact on Albuquerque. And in 2016 Jim and Ellen’s philanthropy took a new and exciting turn as they launched a donor advised fund at the Foun dation to provide support to those seeking education in a skilled trade. “We wanted to help bridge the gap tradespeople face when considering taking their skills as carpenters, plumbers, electricians, and other trades to the master’s level, or though a certificate program,” said Ellen. “When we look at the opportunities for improvements in our community,” added Jim, “educa tion is often a common connection, and this includes education within trade careers.”


Jim and Ellen saw an opportunity. “We wanted make an improvement in our community,” said Jim, “and the Albuquerque Community Foundation was a great way to make it all happen.”

Jim and Ellen King


For donors like Jim and Ellen, supporting education is a very personal approach to philanthro py and the Foundation is honored to be a partner in their efforts.

The majority of grants made each year are from funds restricted by donors. Donor-advised fund holders may make recommenda tions 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 un funded competitive grants every year, the Foundation works closely with donor-advised fund holders to align their grantmaking, supporting unfunded grant proposals and considering letters-of-intent from the Competitive Grant Program.

Patrick Grange Soccer Development Fund

From the time he could walk, it was evident that Patrick Grange would be an athlete. He loved to play several sports, but soccer would be the one he excelled at and the one he would play during school at Albuquerque High, the University of Illinois at Chicago and UNM, and after college for the semi pro team, Albuquerque Assylum and pro soccer in England. Patrick was known for his ability to head the ball, that is, redirecting the ball with one’s head into the net for a goal. At the age of 28, this optimistic, sensitive and humorous young man was diagnosed with ALS-Lou Gehrig’s disease. Patrick passed away on April 10th, 2012 at age 29. It was determined later that he suffered chronic traumatic encephalopathy--a brain disease linked to repeated blows to the head.

At the time of his passing, his parents Michael and Michele, his brothers and grandmother established the Patrick Grange Soccer Development Fund at the Foundation. Since that time, the family sought just the right place to grant the memorial gifts made to this fund. That right place came this year when theVentana Ranch Community Park opened. It’s soccer field would be named in memory of Patrick; a perfectly suitable place where young soccer players can enjoy their sport much like Patrick did during his short life time. It is through this Memorial Fund that Patrick’s memory will last forever.

In late 2002, Allen’s daughter Jamie was diagnosed with stage two Hodgkin lymphoma. She was 24 years old.

During her treatment, Jamie received excellent care from the New Mexico Cancer Center, which included four months of chemotherapy and one month of radiation. Nearly 18 months later, Jaime was given a clean bill of health. In 2008, as part of celebrating five-years cancer free, the family hosted a golf tournament to raise funds that would ease the burden for families with children experiencing medical hardship. The proceeds from that tournament, and four following tournaments, were given to the New Mexico Cancer Center.

Allen Lewis and Carla Aragón

In Frank Capra’s classic film, It’s a Wonderful Life, George Baily is reminded of the positive impact he had on the residents of his hometown of Bedford Falls. Through George’s slow, steady and genuine care for his fellow man, he created ripple effects that had tremendous influences on the lives of people around him.

For Carla Aragón, her husband Allen Lewis and his three daughters, Sarah, Jamie and Katie, It’s a Wonderful Life is an important reminder that actions should always be intentional and inspired by integrity and care. Over their personal and professional lives, Carla and Allen have worked to embody those values by support ing causes they believe in with their time and resources.

“Giving back to the community was a prominent part of my daughters’ upbringing,” said Allen. “We were thrilled when they modeled the behavior, and now we are excited to follow in their footsteps with the creation of our own family fund.” Through creation of the Lasso The Moon Fund, Allen and Carla can ensure that their giving, like the film their fund is named after, will be timeless.

The film It’s a Wonderful Life hasn’t only inspired their family, it also inspired the name of Carla and Allen’s Lasso the Moon Fund, a donor-advised fund created at the Foundation in 2016. The Lasso the Moon Fund supports causes they believe are important, like entrepreneurism, as well as one close to their hearts - supporting the needs of families during cancer treatment.

Foundation donors have different motivations for 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 assists donors in meeting their goals, whether they seek to support multiple organizations, donate anonymously or simply share in the joy of giving back to the terrific places we care

Like the jazz music she loved to listen to, Reba Price’s life was built of intricate layers and themes stacked one upon another, each layer as diverse as it was enriching. One of those layers was a conscious choice to fully experi ence, share and support those parts of life she loved so much. This approach led her to Albuquerque from Cleveland in the mid-2000s, when Albuquerque’s arts and culture scene drew her to the Southwest.

Fiscal Sponsorships

“There was hardly a week that we didn’t go to a music or theatre production,” said her life partner Hal Mackey. Opera Southwest, the Albuquerque Little Theatre and the Outpost Performance Space were a few of her favorites. Reba felt strongly about the need to share these passions with others and she often invited friends to join them on their artistic “Sheoutings.always wanted people to experience live performances the way she did - and those smaller venues were perfect places for her to do it,” said Hal. Her caring and loving spirit extended well beyond her person al life. Her career as a counselor and independent insurance sales agent allowed her to connect with people in meaningful ways and she was known for putting the needs of her clients first, and for going the extra mile. In addition to performing arts, Reba wove a love for children and animals into her life.

Reba passed away unexpectedly on April 11, 2016. Through her estate planning she made arrangements to establish three endowment funds at the Foundation - the Reba Price Fund for Animal Welfare, for Performing Arts and for Children & Fami lies. The first three grants were made this year to support the Albuquerque Little Theatre Capital Campaign and the Sandia Kiwanis Club, where she and Hal were long-time members.

As a result of her generous spirit and careful planning Reba’s melody will continue to grace the ears of Albuquerque residents for years to come.




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. The Heritage Society truly represents our people, working to accomplish shared goals.

The Foundation financially supports the statewide programs and ser vices of the New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired.

Many of these organizations depend upon annual distributions from their endowment(s) for organizational support. Others choose to reinvest the annual distribution for faster growth.

By pooling the funds of an organization with the Foundation’s endowment, an organization can enjoy the benefits of a diverse investment portfolio, as well as low investment fees that typically come only with very large funds. Together in partnership we can accomplish more.

The New Mexico Parent of Multiples (NMPOM) is committed to mutual support and education for parents, guardians and primary care givers of multiples and their families.

Working with others is at the heart of what we do at the Albuquerque Community Foundation. Whether it is partnering with donors, nonprofits, our business community or our public sector, we know that our strength lies in positive collaboration. Here in Albuquerque, we are fortunate to have a generous and engaged nonprofit sector that is invested in improving our city. We know that the effective management of organization endowment funds is an important way to maintain the strength of our community’s nonprofits. We believe that managing endowment funds through Philanthropy Central is one of the things we do best. It is a privilege to work together to ensure Albuquerque remains a city of generous visionaries.

Future FundFuture Fund

Collective impact is one among many ways, to describe the Foundation’s Future Fund, and epitomizes our emphasis on team work and partnership. The Future Fund is a collaborative giving circle comprised of professionals in their 20s and 30s. The beau ty of the Future Fund is that individual members can decide their own level of involvement, but every participant is assured that 100% of their $200 membership will go toward supporting deserving causes. The Future Fund proudly celebrated their 19th anniversary in 2016, and in addition to granting over $20,000 to Albuquerque nonprofits, the group hosted several fun and unique social events and volunteer activities. In 2016, the Future Fund held intimate events at Fusion Theatre and Tablao Flamenco at Hotel Albuquerque, in addition to larger social events that were generously hosted at private homes. Members also partnered with Albuquerque Involved to host a day of service for senior citizens. This group of visionary, thoughtful young leaders is planning for a better tomorrow through active, involved giving.

The Social Giving Club harnesses the power of collaborative social giving and creates an indelible community among our givers and partners.

The Foundation welcomes members who contribute $1,000 each year. 50% of each donation is pooled with other members and then awarded as one large grant annually, always 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. After narrowing the interest areas down to Health and Economic and Workforce Development, the Social Giving Club’s inau gural grant of $25,000 was awarded to Cultivating Coders, an Albuquerque-based coding bootcamp that brings tech skills to rural, tribal and other low-income communities. The eight-week intensive training workshop in coding and web application development curriculum will focus heavily on the most desired sets of skills sought by employers, with the goal of creating a graduating class of “full-stack” developers. Students will also work with local employers on three projects over the course of the program—this gives them the opportunity to graduate with a professional portfolio and a reference contact.

Social Giving ClubSocial Giving Club

In only its second year of existence, the Social Giving Club accomplished two amazing goals. Not only did they grant their first ever $25,000, they also established powerful partnerships among the group of 51 members. This giving circle represents an enduring way to learn more about philanthropy and the enormous power of collective impact.

The Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship funds nonprofits contributing to Albuquerque’s entrepreneurial ecosystem and sup porting the success of our city’s entrepreneurs. In its inaugural year, which closed in 2016, the Prize awarded $200,000 to pro grams supporting bold ideas that create and grow new companies in Albuquerque. From 27 applicants, three nonprofits were selected to share the inaugural prize: Global Ties ABQ, Technology Ventures Corporation and WESST. Each of the Mayor’s Prize winners approach the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Albuquerque differently: TVC focuses on tech nology commercialization, and the Mayor’s Prize for Entrepreneurship has helped to expand its efforts from startups to second stage companies; Global Ties ABQ focuses on international business, and is now not only receiving visitors from the likes of Panama and Indonesia, but as a result of the Prize is training local NM businesses to expand their markets abroad; and WESST has launched their Creative P.I.E. (Practice, Innovation, and Enterprise) program to provide 360 degree support and training for creative businesses in Albuquerque in an effort to expand the creative economy and to financially support founders and job growth. In its first year, we have already seen 52 businesses supported or started, over 300 jobs created or supported and 192 entre preneurs engaged across grantees. Companies and businesses participating in Mayor’s Prize winning programs in 2016 saw a collective revenue increase of over $11 million! This year also brought the announcement of the winners of the second cohort of Prize winners. Announced in November, the four winners sharing $200,000 in prize money are: 2016 Mayor’s Prize Winners

Nusenda Credit Union Foundation Co-Op Capital program $50,000

Entrepreneurship in New Mexico goes back centuries, and entrepreneurial activity is among the best barometers to measure the health of a city’s economy. And, it goes without saying, all of us hope to see jobs growing in our city. However, we are aware that at this stage in our economic development, we also need to patiently build connections and partnerships. That is why we partnered with the City of Albuquerque, the Ewing Marion Kauffman Foundation and generous local donors to create the Mayor’s Prize for Entre preneurship, a Now and Forever Fund at the Foundation.

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.

becoming a Our work leads us to many discoveries here in Albuquerque.

The Foundation is dedicated to working with you to create a charitable giving experience special to you. We are committed to addressing your concerns—our assistance makes 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.

Cash, check or credit card

Stocks, Bonds and Mutual Funds

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.

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).

Life Insurance

Give Tomorrow Give Today - Fund Types xx 57

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

Because retirement plan withdrawals are double-taxed, the value of the plan is decreased for your heirs. Consider provid ing 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.

Collaborative Fund

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

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.

Student Aid Fund

Retirement Account

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.

Charitable Lead Trust

Donor Advised Fund

Charitable Remainder Trust

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

Life Insurance

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.

Donor-Designated 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.

Now & Forever Fund

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 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.

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.

Nutan Patel, AHCH Dental Hygienist for 21 years, works behind the scenes improving the oral hygiene of nearly 1,000 people annually. She gives people a reason to smile where there was none before. Her efforts ensure access, sometimes for the first time in years, to oral health care that is integrated with long unaddressed primary care, behavioral health care and social services. In addition to providing care on the streets, and her diligent work to always find clients through “in-reaches” to AHCH programs, Nutan has been involved in many outreaches at the Barrett House, CLN Kids, Joy Junction, Crossroads for Women, S.A.F.E House and The Rock at NoonDay. Nutan also provides services through Dental Care in Your Home, a nonprofit organization serving special needs and homebound clients by bringing fully mobile, state-of-the-art dental equipment into client’s homes or care facilities.

Nutan is known for her gentle approach to dental hygiene care. Oftentimes, clients require multiple visits and she is always flexible and makes as many appointments as necessary to complete the care required to ensure future dental work is not compromised. As a mentor for hygiene students who complete rotations at the AHCH Dental Clinic, Nutan teaches in-depth perspectives on public health dentistry for people who are experiencing homelessness.

Volunteers are some of our most effective partners in Thephilanthropy.processofreviewing requests from both non profit organizations and students requires a sub stantial amount of time from nearly one hundred community volunteers. Working together with the Foundation, volunteers assisted in making deci sions about the competitive grant and student aid Inprograms.yearsbefore, our volunteers wrestled with the challenge of many more requests for support than could be funded. However, 2016 was a little differ ent. Following our addition of live grant presen tations in 2015, our volunteers were able to get a better sense of each organization, as well as the heart and intention behind their work. Live pitch es from grantees provided volunteers with the opportunity to ask and answer questions, making the process even more exciting and effective. The Foundation was happy to host multiple volunteer advisory committees to review requests and make funding recommendations to the Foundation’s Board of Trustees. We salute our volunteers and their faithful dedica tion and say a heartfelt . . . .

Children’s story book characters introduce each of us at a very young age to the value of partnerships. As we move through life, we establish partnerships in many different ways; marriage, business, volunteering, giving, socializing and collaborating.



Through our 2016 annual report, we express our sincere gratitude to those who partner with us to make our city a great place to live, to work and to play.

Sarah MacLean, bestselling romance author and Washington Post columnist

“The best partnerships aren’t dependent on a mere common goal but on a shared path of equality, desire, and no small amount of passion.”
