Con Alma Health Foundation award grants each year to support nonprofits’ efforts to improve their community’s health. Our investments focus on ensuring that all people have full and equal access to opportunities that enable them to lead healthy lives.
While Con Alma is New Mexico’s largest foundation dedicated solely to health, our grants reflect a diversity of strategies and issues. We understand that health is more than healthcare and as such Con Alma defines health broadly to include physical, mental, emotional, behavioral, social, oral, environmental, economic and spiritual well-being.
Whether through our grantmaking, partnerships, research or reports, Con Alma serves as a catalyst for positive, systemic change. The emphasis of our grantmaking is on attaining long-term policy solutions and health equity.
We believe that together we can make lasting changes that are community-driven and that lift-up New Mexico’s abiding ingenuity.
