Santa Fe Community Foundation: Native American Advised FundDeadline: February 28, 2019
The Native American Advised Fund seeks to enhance Native lifeways now and for future generations in New Mexico by promoting a spirit of sharing and supporting community initiatives. The Fund supports efforts that emphasize the commitment to Native core values: community, language, culture, and environment. Grants are made from the fund based on the recommendations of an advisory committee. The majority of members of the advisory committee are drawn from the local Native American communities.
Amount: Grants generally range from $1,000-$5,000; typically two to four grants are awarded annually.
Eligibility: Organizations that:
- Are located in or serve the people of Santa Fe, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, or Mora Counties
- Are tax-exempt under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code or are a public or governmental agency or a federally recognized tribe in the state of New Mexico, or that have a fiscal sponsor
- Are at least three years old
Note: The Foundation no longer funds requests from nonprofits serving Taos or Los Alamos counties (both counties have their own community foundations). However, nonprofits from Taos and Los Alamos counties may still be included in the Giving Together Catalogue.
