“These grants are specifically for those groups in our communities that are addressing the unique and specific needs of Northern New Mexico,” said Sylvan Argo, Grants Manager at LANL Foundation. “We look forward to hearing from applicants about what they see as needed in their communities and schools and we look forward to supporting those initiatives.”
The LANL Foundation prioritizes investing in tribal and rural communities, homegrown and regionally based organizations and programs, culturally and linguistically sustaining and affirming programs, and student and community capacity building in alignment with the science of learning and development. The Foundation also serves Cochiti Pueblo, Jemez Pueblo, Jicarilla Apache Nation, Kewa Pueblo, Laguna Pueblo, Pueblo of Nambe, Navajo Nation, Ohkay Owingeh, Picuris Pueblo, Pueblo of Pojoaque, San Felipe Pueblo, Pueblo de San Ildefonso, Pueblo of Sandia, Santa Ana Pueblo, Pueblo of Santa Clara, Taos Pueblo, Tesuque Pueblo, and Zia Pueblo.
“In our year-end reflections, we find ourselves in deep appreciation for the support granted by the Los Alamos National Laboratory Foundation. Your funds continue to enable us to nurture weekly grief support groups for families with immigrant roots,” said Nicole Maes-Gonzales, Executive Director of Gerard’s House, a current grantee.
The Foundation is hosting a series of virtual information sessions to help guide prospective grantees through the application process. Those sessions are scheduled for January 17th, January 18th, January 31st, and February 13th and they will address general questions, fiscal sponsorships, and our Theory of Change.
