Endowments

Endowment funds provide a reliable source of annual income for our cultural institutions, supporting exhibitions, acquisitions, education and operations, and other programs and purposes.

Donors may give to an existing fund, or establish a new one (minimum $100,000), designating a specific cultural institution or the Museum of New Mexico Foundation as the beneficiary.

The Museum of New Mexico Foundation managed 32 endowments valued at nearly $20 million as of December 31, 2016.
