Grounded in Community
October 12 - 14, 2022
The events that have unfolded since 2020 radically influenced the lives of all New Mexicans and now challenges us to re-imagine how we work and serve our communities. The New Mexico Association of Grantmakers, now Groundworks New Mexico, joined with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence in 2020 to bridge the gap between philanthropic and nonprofit organizations. Today, Groundworks New Mexico is a single, neutral entity that serves to connect, strengthen, and advocate for New Mexico’s social impact organizations and unleash the full potential of working together. With this in mind, we are re-imagining how we can strengthen our sector by grounding in community.
After months of isolation and remote working, we want to strengthen our sector based on lessons from community. The pandemic taught us the importance of leveraging our networks, building relationships, and becoming more conscious of our identity, culture, and humanity. We are also exploring how our sector can have a deeper understanding of racial equity and anti-racism. We are developing an engaging conference with robust break-out sessions that include topics from JEDI, Transformational Capacity Building, Community Centric Fundraising, Trust Based Philanthropy, and Collaboration. We hope you will join us in-person from October 12 – 14 at the Embassy Suites in Albuquerque, NM. Scholarships will be available for nonprofits from rural communities and the conference will be recorded and made available virtually.
