The Brindle Foundation has two funding streams: one for direct services in six counties and tribal lands in NM, and one for systems-strengthening statewide:
Services for Babies and their Families
Grants for providers of direct services that benefit babies and toddlers prenatal to age three and their families/caregivers or local collaborations around the delivery of early childhood services. We seek programs to advance the well-being of infants and toddlers (and of underserved populations in particular). We recognize the broad range of approaches this may include such as prenatal support, maternal/infant healthcare, home visiting, parent/caregiver education, early childhood development, etc.
Geography: Services must be in one of the following counties: Santa Fe, Sandoval, San Miguel, Mora, Rio Arriba, Taos or tribal lands in New Mexico
Strengthening Early Childhood Systems in New Mexico
By one or more of the following means:
(A) Through advocacy or policy: Grants that support organizations engaged in local or statewide early childhood advocacy, policy development, and awareness campaigns that will benefit our youngest and most vulnerable.
(B) Through innovation: Grants that will attempt to meet critical prenatal and/or early childhood needs in new or catalytic ways. Brindle seeks innovative strategies for systems-strengthening that have potential for impact statewide.
(C) Through coordination and collaboration: Grants that foster partnerships, coalitions, or networks (or other mechanisms) to increase efficiency and effectiveness. The emphasis of these grants is to improve systems and collaborations that address the needs of the youngest New Mexicans and their families/caregivers by working together and/or using shared resources.
(D) Through higher education programs: Grants that promote higher education to impact system-level changes in the state’s early childhood sector. Opportunities include expanding the quality of New Mexico’s infant and toddler care workforce, excellence in teaching, lab schools, model programs, research, building leadership and capacity.
Geography for A-D: New Mexico statewide
Amount: Grants have ranged from $12,500-$40,000.
Eligibility: Nonprofit organizations with a comprehensive policy of nondiscrimination. New applicants must email their policy to the foundation prior to applying.
