Awakening Our Social Sector: Courageous Organizations, Powerful Communities

In 2020, the New Mexico Association of Grantmakers (NMAG) and United Way’s Center for Nonprofit Excellence (CNPE) joined forces to become Groundworks New Mexico. This will be Groundworks’ inaugural convening and we are thrilled to bring you three days of thoughtful, substantive, and timely educational offerings to help empower and re-energize you and your organization.

Local and national speakers will cover topics such as organizational racial equity, the social and economic contributions of New Mexico’s nonprofit sector, how nonprofits can increase funding from national organizations, improving board governance, and trust-based philanthropy. Throughout the conference we have built in health and wellness activities, as well as meaningful networking opportunities.
