Sky Center/New Mexico Suicide Intervention Project

The Sky Center/New Mexico Suicide Intervention Project was awarded a $15,000 challenge grant for youth suicide prevention activities from the Carl C. Anderson, Sr. and Mary Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation. The Sky Center, located in Southwest Santa Fe, is the only community-based organization in Santa Fe County and the surrounding area specifically aimed at reducing youth suicidal behaviors. Your donations will increase other grant prospects and strengthen the capacity and capability of delivering life-changing services that cultivate hope and resilience for youth and families during this unparalleled time. The award is based on a dollar-for-dollar funding match that must be received before 1/13/23. For any further information about the Anderson challenge grant or The Sky Center, please contact Cynthia Gonzales, Grants and Contracts Director,

Pecos People for Animal Welfare Society

Pecos People for Animal Welfare Society, dba PAWS, is requesting a matching grant for $12,000 to complete the funding for a new spay/neuter mobile unit for the underserved areas of New Mexico. PAWS has been fundraising for 3 years. Just when PAWS was only $35,000 away from the price the base price increased by $50,000. We are writing a grant for the $50,000 increase but still need to raise the $35,000. Matching the $12,500 from a Family Fund will allow us to order the mobile.

 Atalaya Search & Rescue

Atalaya Search and Rescue (ASAR) is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization dedicated to the successful search and rescue of the lost or injured in the backcountry of Northern New Mexico or wherever needed. We received a $5,000 grant and are looking for support from the Santa Fe community to match it and close our annual budget gap!

Many people don't think about what happens when something goes wrong when they hit the trails or get into the backcountry; it's actually volunteer search and rescue teams that answer the call for help. We train bi-weekly and maintain a wide-range of team equipment for rock, avalanche, and backcountry rescues. Grant support is needed to update and upgrade critical gear–ropes and rigging devices, radios, medical kits, and other specialized equipment–and to undertake technical training–wilderness first aid, high-angle rescue techniques, and advanced avalanche safety–so ASAR can maintain best-practices, keeping Santa Feans safe as they enjoy the outdoors.

Many Mothers

Many Mothers provides in-home services and wraparound care to achieve health equity and wellbeing for babies and their caregivers in Northern New Mexico. Many Mothers has received a $20,000 matching grant from the Carl C. Anderson Sr. and Marie Jo Anderson Charitable Foundation to support families in 2022.

Families with babies up to 6 months old are matched with a trained, compassionate volunteer who provides in-home care and hands-on support mirrored after that of extended family. In addition to this free service, income-eligible families can receive safe sleep education and a safe sleep crib for their babies to reduce the incidence of SIDS; food support through local farms; assistance with basic needs supplies such as diapers and wipes; and community navigation support from our staff and volunteers. All services are available in English and Spanish. We are grateful for your donation, which will be matched up to $20,000. To support families and babies in Northern New Mexico, please visit or call Antoinette Villamil at 505.490.6509. Thank you!
