Public Charities and Foundations Benefit New Mexico Communities

Preparing youth for global economy
The American Indian Science and Engineering Society seeks
to substantially increase the representation of American
Indians and Alaska Natives in STEM careers. They focus on
engaging youth as early as middle school and provide
training and mentoring for college students and professionals.
They have over 4,800 individual members and have awarded
over $12 million in academic scholarships.

Give voice to the people they serve
The United Way of Central New Mexico has a tremendous
impact on the families and children they serve. Through their
program, Tax Help New Mexico, 17,501 people received free
tax prep and over $22 million in tax refunds in 2018.

Contribute to vibrant communities
The Georgia O’Keefe Museum in Santa Fe houses over 3,000 works
comprised of 140 O’Keeffe oil paintings, nearly 700 drawings, and
hundreds of additional works dating from 1901 to 1984. Educational
programs at the Museum serve more than 7,100 students and adults
per year with a robust slate of workshops, lectures, conversations,
and classroom activities.

Advance solutions for challenges facing society
Based in Albuquerque, Americans for Indian Opportunity (AIO)’s AIO
Ambassadors Program, created a network of 187 Native American
leaders. This model program is now in New Zealand, and working
with leaders in Bolivia, Japan, and other Latin American countries. It
is part of a vision to create an international network of indigenous
leaders working together to address the pressing issues of the day
