Mission Statement:

Excellent Schools New Mexico is a nonprofit organization devoted to ensuring that all New Mexico children have the opportunity to fulfill their potential and lead healthy, meaningful lives. We make high-impact grants to our state’s best schools and educators so that more New Mexico children can receive a quality public school education.

Primary Programs:

To-date, we have provided funding and support to local educators in the following areas:
1) Schools: We make startup capital grants to incubate and expand transformational New Mexico public schools. We prioritize schools that show strong family demand and serve at-risk students, many of whom have traditionally lacked access to high-performing public schools located close to home.
2) Facilities: We make zero-interest loans to high-performing, growing partner schools. These loans have helped our partner schools access low-interest, private debt financing, which has led to the construction and renovation of permanent, first-rate facilities.
3) High-Impact Professional Development: We make grants to best-in-class organizations that support the development and growth of educators and help meet the social-emotional needs of students and families.
