Welcome to The Con Alma Health Foundation
The Heart and Soul of Health in New Mexico
2023 Grant Cycles and New Report
Our 2023 grant cycles will open soon – learn more by visiting the ‘For Grant Seekers’ page. Con Alma Health Foundation provides grants to eligible nonprofits working to improve health and advance health equity for people who live in New Mexico.
We invite you to review our Landscape Study, conducted by Insight Allies, which summarizes a 10-year review of our grantmaking practices. We asked grantees and applicants what it’s like to work with us, while also reviewing our internal practices to better understand how to improve. This study includes: in-depth document and literature reviews, grant data from 2009-2019, 201 grants to 139 organizations in New Mexico, and perspectives from 26 grantee interviews.

Con Alma's COVID-19 Response
In light of the evolving public health emergency due to COVID-19, Con Alma Health Foundation continues to take a number of steps in an attempt to minimize exposure and slow the projected spread of infection. Until further notice, Con Alma has suspended in-person meetings at the Con Alma office. In the interim we have adopted a hybrid schedule and staff can be reached via email or other means as arranged.
We continue to encourage our partners and friends to follow recommendations from the CDC’s website and the New Mexico Department of Health’s website and other health officials regarding social distancing and other public health advisories, including information on managing anxiety and stress.
