About the CNM Foundation

CNM Foundation Mission CNM Foundation Staff

The Central New Mexico Community College Foundation was incorporated in 1992 as the not-for-profit 501(c)(3) corporation to accept and administer private gifts on behalf of Central New Mexico Community College. Gifts to the Foundation are tax-deductible and benefit College programs, scholarships and activities that are not funded through state operating and capital budgets.

Our Mission

The CNM Foundation is committed to the principle that no student should be denied the opportunity for an education or vocational training due solely to a lack of financial resources. The CNM Foundation works to help the College meet its mission to create educational opportunities and community partnerships while pursuing a level of community college excellence that is worthy of local and national recognition.

The CNM Foundation is the past recipient of the VIVA Award from the Association of Commerce and Industry of New Mexico and the New Mexico Ethics in Business Awards (Not-for-Profit Category) of the Samaritan Counseling Center.
