Join Us in Supporting Excellence in Education 

Without our donors, volunteers, partners, teachers, scholars, and grantees, the LANL Foundation couldn’t exist. We are profoundly grateful for all of you! Your dedication and contributions are changing the lives of students and their families in Northern New Mexico. Thank you.

Ways to Give:


Students in Northern New Mexico have big dreams for meaningful careers. However, many do not have the money to fund higher learning to make these dreams a reality. We ask for your support in providing financial assistance to these deserving high school and college students seeking undergraduate degrees and adults looking for new opportunities through a two-year degree or certification. Most donations to the Los Alamos Employees’ Scholarship Fund (LAESF) come from the generous Laboratory workforce and Triad National Security, however anyone can contribute to our scholarships for any field of study, not just STEM.

Whether you choose to make a one-time donation or commit to a longer-term pledge, your generosity will help a student from your community build a fulfilling career and a bright future. 

Named & Memorial Scholarships

Individuals or groups can endow a fund that honors a loved one or supports specific students needs and career goals. Read about our current Scholarship Funds.

Contact Mike Ammerman at 505-753-8890 for additional information about scholarship giving or joining the LAESF advisory committee. 

Education Programming

In addition to funding scholarships, you can help build our programming that supports home visiting, inquiry STEM in our schools, teacher professional development, work-based learning, career pathways, and more.

Legacy Giving

A planned gift to the LANL Foundation can make a lasting impact on education, local students, and their families. These gifts have a ripple effect beyond personal fulfillment by contributing to your community’s workforce readiness and the local economy. With a 20-year track record of fostering innovative programs and our trusted management of an endowment that has more than doubled, a partnership with the LANL Foundation is a sound investment.

LANL Foundation can assist you with legacy planning that meets your personal goals and provides financial benefits to you and your family.

Other Ways to Support Our Work:

Real Estate Gifts

Did you know that you can donate real estate to the LANL Foundation? Direct gifts of appreciated assets like real estate are simply a smarter way to give – allowing donors to avoid capital gains taxes, to receive a tax deduction based on current appraisal, to preserve the more liquid assets, and to relieve a portfolio of a complex asset that is no longer needed. The net proceeds from the full gift cycle deliver significant cash to one or more nonprofits and produce legacy relationships that last forever.  The LANL Foundation is proud to partner with the Realty Gift Fund headquartered in Santa Fe.
