Thoma Foundation Support for Education and the Arts in Southern NM Starts with $600,000

August 8, 2022

The Carl & Marilynn Thoma Foundation, a private family foundation with offices in Santa Fe and Chicago, has made its first grants to support educational and arts nonprofit organizations in southern New Mexico. Ngage New Mexico and the University Art Museum (UAM) at New Mexico State University (NMSU) have each received a $300,000 grant to be used over three years. These grants will help the two organizations build staff capacity and create greater impact within the communities they serve. These grants also speak to a larger shift within the Foundation towards a growing emphasis on bolstering education and career opportunities in rural and non-metro areas across four target states: New Mexico, Arizona, Oklahoma, and Texas.
