UWNCNM has awarded $2,059,687 in grants to 60 health and human service agencies in four counties as a result of its annual Community Investment process to foster stronger communities in 2023. In addition, $250,000 was awarded to 19 nonprofit organizations in Santa Fe County.

UWNCNM collaborates with hundreds of community partners to focus and align our community around a set of shared strategies designed to improve family stability and educational attainment. These two initiatives represent a comprehensive approach to improving outcomes for children, youth, and families at scale. We have three grant categories that support our initiatives:

1) Impact Grants that focus on education/youth development and family stability.
2) Basic Needs Grants support emergent needs, such as food and emergency shelter.
3) Capacity Building Grants improve a nonprofit’s ability to fulfill its mission.


If you have questions, please reach out to the Santa Fe Area Director Abby Bordner.
