Financials & Transparency
This page is designed to provide social investors and members of the public with the information we would want if our roles were reversed. Think New Mexico is committed to providing full and open disclosure of our finances and sources of funding.
In 2002, the Rio Grande Sun published an editorial praising Think New Mexico’s approach to transparency.
Think New Mexico has also been recognized as a Guidestar Exchange Gold level participant because we adhere to high standards of transparency and accountability.
Each year, we publish our financial statements and list of funders in our annual reports. All of these reports can be downloaded here.

In order to ensure our financial stability, Think New Mexico keeps approximately one year’s operating expenses in highly liquid securities. Our remaining assets are invested partially by three community foundations (Albuquerque Community Foundation, Santa Fe Community Foundation, and Taos Community Foundation), and partially in diversified common stock index funds which are managed for the long term and are overseen by Think New Mexico’s board and investment advisor.
Additional information about Think New Mexico, including all of our Forms 990, is available on GuideStar, a national database of nonprofits.
