New Mexico has a number of organizations and programs that serve the needs of nonprofits.  New Mexico Thrives is working to identify the gaps to avoid duplication of effort.  New Mexico Thrives is informed by the work of other state nonprofit associations and the National Council of Nonprofits.

Efforts of some other state nonprofit associations and possibilities for a New Mexico association are:

  • Campaigns against state budget cuts
  • Facilitated dialogues between funders and nonprofits about need to fund overhead, and to build nonprofit financial reserves
  • Protecting income tax credits for charitable donations
  • Defending sales tax exemption for nonprofits
