PNM Resources Foundation 40th Anniversary Grant
PNM Resources Foundation is proud to announce its 40th anniversary with a commitment to give back to the community it serves. The Foundation awarded $700,000 in grants to forty-four nonprofits that have demonstrated a commitment to important issues around education, inclusion, the environment, and community vitality. Each nonprofit recipient has made a significant impact on the communities they serve and was celebrated in mid-June this year at the African American Performing Arts Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
