Albuquerque Community Foundation

There is no other country in the world with a tradition of philanthropy as strong as the United States, and Albuquerque Community Foundation (ACF) has a special place in its community's philanthropy. ACF is a partnership of donors, nonprofit organizations, and the community working together to find solutions to pressing community needs.

The foundation administers a permanent endowment comprised of many gifts, large and small, and use the earnings from that endowment to make grants to nonprofit organizations and educational institutions, and scholarships for students to continue their education.
