OUR WORK: LANL Foundation works to nurture our human potential and inspire excellence in education and learning in Northern New Mexico through grant-making, scholarships, programming, advocacy, our facilities, and our partnerships. Rooted in the relationships we foster, the learning sciences and the guiding principles that teaching and leadership matter, these tools help us to collaborate with and convene partners from our region, and beyond. They help us to learn from and with partners as we work to develop the opportunities that will ensure that the children and youth in Northern New Mexico have the skills and confidence they need to become self-sufficient, lifelong learners who are engaged in their communities.

OUR GRANTMAKING: Education Outreach and Community Outreach are awarded once a year through a competitive grant cycle. Schools, districts, non-profit and Pueblo/Tribal partners are eligible to apply for up to $5,000 in support of projects and programs serving our 7-county service area (Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, Sandoval, San Miguel, Santa Fe, and Taos counties). Grantees have one full year to spend the money and submit a final report to the LANL Foundation.

In 2019, 108 outreach grants and sponsorships were awarded totaling more than $245,000.
