“For 38 years, New Mexico Foundation (NMF) has worked to improve the quality of life for all residents of New Mexico. The only statewide foundation, NMF was started in 1983 by a small group of dedicated and visionary volunteers who believed in the power of Philanthropy as a tool for inspiring creative, community-based change and prosperity.

For thirty-eight years, NMF has distinguished itself as a leader in philanthropy. Our progressive, grassroots approach to building stronger communities empowers community members to collaborate on critical issues by tapping into local resources and discovering the strength in themselves.”

Our goal is to support local organizations in these communities so they can meet the cultural, educational, and social needs of people throughout the areas.

The organization was founded in 1980 by Elliott W. and Virginia Phillips to help raise funds to support the arts, education, and social services in New Mexico and the High Plains of West Texas. Since forming, The Waite and Genevieve Phillips Foundation has helped many organizations thrive, making it possible for them to provide the necessary support to families and individuals in their communities.”

Lineberry Foundation: $12,500 for Meals That Heal Program.

Preference is given to organizations that demonstrate their ability to create positive, lasting change through creative, innovative programs.”

We’d like to send a heartfelt thank you to all four organizations for their generous support and helping us fulfill our mission to help save lives in Northern New Mexico.
