WHAT WE DOCommunity Impact

JCC Passover

Fun at the JCC

As we pursue the Jewish Community Foundation of New Mexico’s goals of building and perpetuating support for a vibrant, caring Jewish community and honoring our Jewish value of Tikkun Olam, the Foundation partners with donors and organizations to distribute grants and scholarships.

These grants help feed families, enhance spiritual and emotional well-being, strengthen Jewish connections, educate children and adults, provide healthcare, create art and music, and assist immigrants and refugees.

In addition, the Foundation awards scholarships to New Mexico youth to attend Jewish sleep-away camps, participate in Israel Experiences, and attend college.
