This past fiscal year there were more than 11,000 donors in excess of 31,000 gifts, proving that the future of student success, excellent patient care, outstanding faculty and cutting-edge research are highly valued at the University.
Who are we? The UNM Foundation consistently raises more than $80 million annually to support The University of New Mexico. This support helps students, programs, faculty, patients, health care, and research at the University. The Foundation and University are getting ready to close the largest fundraising campaign ($1 billion) in the University’s history, putting us in an elite group of just 59 public universities to achieve such an audacious goal. The Foundation offers a dynamic opportunity with robust benefits and a thriving organizational environment!
