Con Alma Invites Nonprofits Improving Health To Apply For Grants Through April 24

SANTA FE ― Con Alma Health Foundation invites nonprofits that improve health in New Mexico to apply for grants that support their work toward sustainable solutions to their communities’ health challenges.

Con Alma, the state’s largest private foundation dedicated solely to health, opened its annual grant cycle today.

Nonprofits can apply for grants starting March 20 until 5 p.m. April 24. Last year Con Alma awarded $665,000 to nonprofits working toward a healthier New Mexico.

Nonprofits can apply for grants online at www.conalma.org. This year applicants need to select from a list of fixed grant amounts ranging from $7,500 to $20,000. Call 505.438.0776, ext. 6 or e-mail grants@conalma.org if you have questions. Con Alma will consider three types of requests:

  • Project support for a specific set of activities or particular goals within the organization’s mission
  • General operating/core support to fund an organization’s mission and scope of operations in their entirety (Organizations that primarily or exclusively provide direct services are not eligible to apply for general operating/core support.)
  • Technical assistance/capacity building to strengthen the nonprofit sector and expand or improve an organization’s ability to carry out its mission effective.

In a separate grant cycle, Con Alma and the Hospital Auxiliary for Los Alamos Medical Center, working together as the Northern New Mexico Health Grants Group, are accepting grant applications from nonprofits that serve Los Alamos, Rio Arriba and northern Santa Fe counties. Grants up to $20,000 are intended to address health needs in the tri-county area. Nonprofits can apply for funding from both Con Alma and Northern New Mexico Health Grant Group.

Con Alma works with partners in New Mexico to improve health and work toward health equity, when everyone has an equal chance at living a healthy life regardless of zip code, ethnicity or income. The statewide foundation places a special focus on supporting culturally diverse, rural and tribal communities, as well as the uninsured and underserved. Since its inception, Con Alma has invested more than $14 million in nonprofits’ improving health in New Mexico.
