LANL Foundation: Call For Education And Community Grants Applications

unnamed (1)


The LANL Foundation is now accepting applications for $2,500 funding within its small grants program. Deadline to apply is September 15, 2019.

Two types of grants are offered to nonprofit organizations, Pueblos, schools or education programs. Education Outreach Grants directly support public school children in grades K–12. Community Outreach Grants meet the Foundation’s mission and vision of innovative programming, collaboration and advocacy for lifelong learning but need not be tied directly to K–12 public education. Early childhood and adult programs, basic needs, family and community support programs and some community events fall within the category of community funding.

Public school districts, nonprofit New Mexico educational institutions, IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) organizations, government agencies and Pueblo/Tribal communities may be eligible to receive grants and must serve one or more of the seven Northern New Mexico counties of Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe or Taos.

Grantees have one full year to spend the money and submit a final report to the LANL Foundation.

This is the second of two yearly grantmaking cycles offered by the LANL Foundation. In the first half of the year, 51 programs were awarded Small Grants totaling $121,263.31.
