The Wellness Fund is offering grants to assist non-profit organizations in improving maternal and child health and wellness outcomes in southern New Mexico. Maternal/child well-being is defined broadly and may include one or more of the following:

- Education (cognitive, language, social-emotional learning)
- Direct services
- Programs that support maternal/child well-being, including positive relationships between parents/caregivers and children
- Social determinants of health (the conditions that influence the places where we live, work, and play, such as our environment, housing, food, education, jobs, etc.)
The Community Foundation seeks to support both new and existing projects that:
- Demonstrate improvement in maternal, infant, and/or child well-being
- Support healthy environments where mothers, infants, and children live, work, and play
- Demonstrate improved wellness outcomes for mothers, infants, and children as broadly defined above
