There were two grant cycles in 2019 with awards of up to $2,500 each. LANL Foundation will announce a new grantmaking process in January 2020.
Community Outreach Grants meet our mission and vision of innovative programming, collaboration, and advocacy for lifelong learning. Community Outreach Grants are not required to solely support K-12 public education. Early Childhood, adult learning, basic needs initiatives or community events are a few areas that fall under this category.
The LANL Foundation’s Community Outreach Grants are open to schools, nonprofit New Mexico educational institutions, IRS-qualified 501(c)(3) organizations, government agencies, and Pueblo/Tribal communities serving Los Alamos, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Sandoval, Santa Fe, and Taos counties.
Recipients have one full year to spend the grant money. Each program may receive only one grant per year.
