Education is the key that unlocks a successful future for all New Mexicans.
New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF) strives to give every child the opportunity for a bright future by working to enhance all levels of education.
One important focus for NMCF is improving the quality of the early childhood education system for students, their parents, their teachers and their communities. Our New Mexico Spark program, for example, is inspiring Native American communities statewide to commit to innovative early education models to improve educational outcomes for their children.
Encouraging Community Involvement in Education
NMCF education programs and initiatives encourage greater parent, elder and community involvement in education.
We emphasize building partnerships to support the strategies and systems for creating stronger, more effective education programs, schools and educators.
We foster focused civic engagement by students to ensure that they develop the educational, social and leadership skills to become successful adults.
NMCF also partners with individual donors and organizations to fund scholarships for New Mexico students. This critical financial assistance not only provides greater access to education, it encourages students to set goals for achievement in their education and their life.
