Leadership & Civic Involvement
By cultivating community leadership and inviting civic engagement, New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF) helps create more capable communities statewide.
NMCF helps develop leaders – both traditional and non-traditional – who can guide communities, address inequities and shape policies. For example, our Collaborative Leadership Program builds collaborative skills required to bring people in diverse communities together to effectively address challenges impacting children and youth.
Collaboration and Civic Dialogue
Our leadership efforts focus on training and professional development around strategy-planning, communications and facilitative leadership. We also develop local assets to support this work.
NMCF promotes programs that foster better collaboration between nonprofits, service providers and stakeholders from different sectors. We encourage program partners to learn from and share their respective experiences in community outreach and philanthropy.
Additionally, our civic initiatives focus on promoting community-based solutions, supporting innovative projects, and encouraging advocacy, dialogue and action.
