Experience the Joy of Giving
As Program Director of the Albuquerque Community Foundation, Nancy Johnson manages the Foundation’s grant and scholarship programs including the competitive, donor-advised and corporate grant programs, and 12 scholarship/financial aid programs.
Johnson will transform how you think about your philanthropic potential and explore how to unleash your resources to change the world!
She will also discuss:
- How to establish and maintain a successful relationship with a nonprofit organization whose mission aligns with your passion.
- The key criteria that foundations use to evaluate applications from potential grantees.
Nancy has been with the Foundation since 1991. During this time assets have grown from $5 million to $50 million. She works with donors to define their philanthropic goals now and through planned giving options. The Foundation has awarded more than $16 million since 1984. Annually, total grant awards are more than $2 million.
Nancy reviews more than 500 applications for funding from nonprofit organizations annually, oversees the Foundation’s ever growing web site, and provides technical assistance to the staff, boards, and volunteers of nonprofit organizations.
The Community Outreach Committee will hold its second quarterly Silent Auction at the May 9 meeting to benefit NAWBO-NNM’s Foundation, a 501-c-3 nonprofit organization. Click here for details on how you can promote your business and support our philanthropic efforts.
