NMCF ACTIVATES NM FIRE RELIEF FUND FOR 2013
SANTA FE, NM – New Mexico Community Foundation, in the role of Philanthropic First Responder, has activated the NM Fire Relief Fund for 2013. These funds will be used to assist families who have experienced hardships following the wildfires across the state, beginning with the Tres Lagunas Fire in the Pecos Wilderness that has burned more than 5000 acres and the Thompson Ridge Fire in Jemez that has burned nearly 10,000 acres. With 4th of July festivities barely a month away, NMCF’s goal is to have resources in place and ready to support affected families throughout the fire season.
NMCF is seeking business partners and individual donors to commit to helping those displaced by making a contribution to the Fire Relief Fund. Donate online at NMCF.org or by calling 505-820-6860. 100% of contributions received will go directly to nonprofits serving those affected by fires in our state.
In 2012, more than $200,000 was disbursed by NMCF through our various Emergency Grant programs. For the most up-to-date information on wildfires in New Mexico, visit NMFireInfo.com.
As an endowment-building and grant-making organization, the New Mexico Community Foundation serves and invests in New Mexico’s people, communities, and environment. With partners in every county, we promote philanthropy as a tool for building community assets, relationships, and self-reliance. Working together, we maximize resources to meet the unique needs of New Mexicans today and create lasting change for tomorrow. Join us as we celebrate 30 years of effective philanthropy.
