Fund Raising at the University of New Mexico
In order to develop private financial support for the University of New Mexico, the University's Board of Regents established the UNM Foundation Inc. in 1979 as an incorporated nonprofit corporation. The Foundation began operations in the spring of 1980, conducting all of its operations through a University department. At that time, University units hired development professionals and limited staff to provide direct fund raising and other support to programmatic initiatives for philanthropy.
