OUR WORK: The LANL Foundation’s vision is that all New Mexicans have the skills and confidence they need to be self-sufficient, lifelong learners who are engaged with their community. Through our grants program, we seek to support and invest in change-making, innovative organizations, schools and communities. Through these investments in relationships, we work with our expert and visionary grantees to plant seeds of skills, confidence and opportunity with and for students, teachers, families and thought-leaders.
OUR COMMITMENT: As a learning organization, the Foundation is committed to listening to the communities we serve and to promoting racial and social equity in all our programs and grant making. We know that public education plays a unique and powerful role in shaping the trajectories for all communities, especially communities of color - either positively by expanding opportunities or adversely by perpetuating racial disparities. We will continue to work as an organization to recognize our own biases and privileges, and to see the impact that race, poverty, class, language, historical trauma, oppression, and other differences have on our work and our society. We will also encourage this work in other organizations and in our community. As we move forward with grant making and with current and new programs, we will keep the urgency of addressing these related issues at forefront.
LANL Foundation’s THEORY OF CHANGE:
- Engaged communities, along with outstanding school boards, educators, principals and schools lead to,
- Improved learning opportunities and outcomes, which leads to,
- Whole child development, which leads to,
