    Taos Community Foundation General Fund

    The TCF General Fund supports the operations of Taos Community Foundation. Started with a legacy gift from Hal Davis this fund is a reminder of how friends of the Foundation can leave a legacy supporting our long term mission of improving the quality of life in the communities we serve.

    We believe that charitable gifts that are wisely invested will grow to have a remarkable impact long after initially donated. We believe that people working together can make a difference!

    Community Leadership Fund

    Taos Community Foundation takes on challenging issues, pursues cross-sector solutions, engages citizens, and marshals the needed resources to improve our communities, build social capital and provide opportunity for all. In our work throughout community, both in grant-making and convening, we are always listening for emerging threads.

    Community Leadership is the Foundation's way of using discretionary funds to support emergent community needs identified through discussion, incubation and planning with community members. We fund both short term special projects and long term endowed sponsored projects.

    Community Endowment Fund

    The Community Endowment Fund responds to our commitment to building permanent endowment funds, supporting projects and organizations which improve quality-of-life over time.

    Memorial Funds

    When a loved one dies, keeping their memory alive is a way of honoring their life and finding comfort in your own life as a survivor. Some people do this with actual physical memorials, while others prefer to set up funds.

    Setting up a fund at TCF is a wonderful way to remember your loved one. This gift to the community is given in perpetuity, so the name and interests of your loved one can live on through the fund.

    When donating online, include the name of your existing memorial fund in the "Add special instructions for TCF" section. If you have not set up a fund but are interested in discussing this option please call Traci at our offices.
