Our deep thanks go out to the 11 extremely generous New Mexicans who put together a pool of challenge grants totaling $112,500 and to the 405 New Mexicans who helped us more than match that challenge!
By the time the two-week fundraising campaign wrapped up, not only did your contributions meet the challenge, they totaled $117,790! Including both the challenge grants and your matching contributions, during the past two weeks you helped us raise $229,790, which is nearly 40% of Think New Mexico’s annual budget.
Since Think New Mexico was founded in 1999, we have always worked hard to keep our fundraising expenses to an absolute minimum. That’s why we have never employed a professional fundraiser. This strategy has succeeded thanks to all of you who give so generously every year and make it possible for Think New Mexico’s small staff to focus on our policy research and advocacy work.
