COVID-19 Nonprofit Emergency Response

The Los Alamos Community Foundation has the health and safety of our community in mind during the public emergency presented by the COVID-19 virus. Clear information about what to do and not to do to mitigate the possible consequences is critical and we suggest you go to the Los Alamos Coronavirus Info Page for the latest information from Federal, State, and County resources. We also encourage you to subscribe to the County Line newsletter so you will receive timely updates as they are published.

We also know that our nonprofits are severely impacted by this crisis. The LACF, in collaboration with Delle Foundation, LANL Foundation, Newport News Nuclear BWXT Los Alamos (N3B), Triad National Security LLC, and United Way of Northern New Mexico, has set up Nonprofit Emergency Response Funds, as a hub for accepting donations from individuals, foundations, and businesses and distributing 100% of those funds rapidly to nonprofits, with priority to those on the front lines of COVID-19 response. Since Los Alamos County is not in the service area of any other community foundation in New Mexico, we have set up two funds:

  • The Nonprofit Emergency Response Fund – Los Alamos will collect funds prioritized toward nonprofits situated in and serving Los Alamos County.
  • The Nonprofit Emergency Response Fund – Greatest Need will collect funds prioritized toward the greatest need of nonprofits situated in Rio Arriba and Los Alamos Counties.
