Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico: The Advancing Social Equity InitiativeDeadline: August 31, 2021
The Advancing Social Equity Initiative invites applications for the support of organizational capacity building resulting in impactful work and engagements that advance racial and social justice in Southern New Mexico.

This initiative aims to seed a pilot demonstration model to ground equity in the fabric of local nonprofits, thereby increasing well-being among staff and constituents with exponential impact in the community. This model may serve as inspiration for other area human service organizations to build collaborative power to ground equitable well-being efforts in the region.

Eligibility: Human Services nonprofits with 501(c)(3) status in Southern New Mexico, with an annual operating revenue under $1 million; those located in Las Cruces and Doña Ana County will be prioritized. Tribal, Native, and indigenous-led 501(c)(3) organizations in the area are strongly encouraged to apply.
