Con Alma 2018 Annual Report 07/26/2019

As in previous years, we remain committed to our support of organizations that focus on underserved populations. We work with Border Philanthropy Partnership to advance health equity through leadership, collaboration and philanthropy in the border region, and with the UNM Transdisciplinary Research, Equity and Engagement (UNM TREE Center) to advance behavioral health.

We continued collaborating with nonprofits and other stakeholders through a W.K. Kellogg Foundation two-year grant aimed at strengthening our fragile health-care safety net and bolstering health reform efforts. By bringing diverse groups of people together, we are strengthening relationships with organizations focused on health issues and creating successful networks to guide policy makers and stakeholders in how they can best support our children and families as well as advocate for the health needs of all.

For this year’s report we chose the theme, New Mexico Counts, to highlight the critical importance of every New Mexican being counted in the upcoming 2020 Census. Our work with other funders included urging the federal government to not add a citizenship question, which would have undermined the accuracy of the count here and across the country. Our advocacy reflects our mission to improve the health status of New Mexicans and be aware of and respond to the health rights and needs of our culturally diverse population. Our center spread provides information about our efforts and what you can do to get every New Mexican counted.

As always, we must credit our grantees, funding partners, committed staff and members of our Board of Trustees and Community Advisory Committee. We appreciate your time and dedication in helping us achieve our goal of improving health in New Mexico.

Interactive Maps

New Mexico Children and 
Health Insurance Coverage


The Affordable Care Act includes provisions that focus on improving quality of care for racial and ethnic minorities. In New Mexico about 70 percent of children are of color, and almost a third of children live in poverty. Interactive maps are available that detail seven categories of children’s insurance coverage by county. These maps are a useful tool for anyone interested in learning more about the insurance coverage of New Mexico’s children by such categories as race, place, gender and income.
