A gift to UWCNM by philanthropist MacKenzie Scott provided the funding in Santa Fe to help the organizations further their ability to provide for community needs and build their capacity to strengthen their programs and services. The grant applications were reviewed by Santa Fe community volunteers, and the grant awards are ratified by UWCNM’s Board.
UWCNM also awarded $2,044,633.33 in grants to 57 health and human service agencies in the counties of Bernalillo, Sandoval, Torrance and Valencia as a result of its annual Community Investment process to foster stronger communities.
