Today I Give


The Community Foundation of Southern New Mexico (CFSNM) has been here since the beginning, supporting local non-profit organizations, creating three unique pandemic-related funds to assist families throughout the region, and distributing grants to those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Don’t wait—when a crisis hits, community-minded people step up and help. No matter how bad things get, you can always look for the helpers. Nurses, grocers, and other essential employees are doing their part. Now, you can do YOUR part.

The effects of COVID continue to hurt the people of our area, both physically and economically. Please make a contribution to help our friends and neighbors that continue to be affected by the massive changes in 2020.

NOW is the time for you to help right here, in your own community.


When COVID-19 shutdowns started in March, this fund was formed to provide grants of $250 to $500. 1,573 individuals and families were helped from 157 donors that gave $462,554. With the ongoing pandemic, many will need help again.

Are you overtipping your servers? If so, thank you for your generosity, but also consider that many are unemployed and can’t receive those tips. To date 16 restaurants have been assisted with $1,000 grants. In turn these restaurants have served more than 1,600 free meals to those in need.
