Grants to New Mexico nonprofit organizations, Native American tribes, public schools, and government agencies for general operating support. Funding is intended to support organizations working to benefit local communities in the areas of education, economic development, the arts, health, environment, and social services.
The McCune Charitable Foundation supports community-based work in the State of New Mexico that aligns with the nine Foundation Priorities and their corresponding Leverage Points. The best fit for Foundation funding are organizations that work collaboratively across the priority areas to support community well-being and create long-term impact, and whose leadership and expertise come from those who are closest to and most affected by the organization's work.
The Lead grant category supports established organizations that are proven to play a supporting role to the broader ecosystem of non-profits by providing critical supports to numerous other organizations in alignment with Foundation priorities and values. Lead grantees often operate in the background, providing specific, critical programmatic or operational supports to help make other groups more impactful.
