Emergency Action Fund

Share this on:

United Way of Central New Mexico and the Albuquerque Community Foundation have teamed up to deploy an Emergency Action Fund to support nonprofit organizations struggling with lost and non-recoverable revenue expenses due to COVID-19. With the recent news of COVID-19 related cancellations and closings across Albuquerque, we’ve seen many nonprofits cancel programming, events and client services that have not only caused a significant financial hardship on the organizations, but also on the local small businesses and individuals that would have benefited from being part of the canceled activities.

**As of May 1, $585,186 has been contributed to this fund and $334,293 has been granted to date!

Emergency Fund Grant Recipients

You can make a donation to the Emergency Action Fund through the Community Foundation here or on our donation page. or text EAFC19 to 41444. Any donation made directly to United Way of Central New Mexico through June 1st will go to support the Emergency Fund.

The Emergency Action Fund will accept requests for short-term funding to support operations of nonprofit organizations located in the Greater Albuquerque Area beginning now with an accelerated response time within ten days. All grants are unrestricted and will range from $500 -$5000. Additional funding criteria is available on the website.
