Landscape Study of the New Mexico Nonprofit Sector

A statewide, widely representative steering committee of funders and nonprofits has come together to identify the best ways to strengthen and sustain the nonprofit infrastructure in New Mexico. Nonprofit infrastructure includes things like training and technical assistance, networking, data and research, nonprofit advocacy, and funding.

This steering committee is actively seeking input from nonprofits which will be used to select strategies to better support organizations serving New Mexico’s communities. In an effort to hear from as many nonprofits and funders from across the state as possible, the steering committe has released two surveys. 

Taking the Survey

Apex, a New Mexico-based evaluation firm, is managing the surveys. An organizational leader is the best person to respond and the survey will take 10-20 minutes. Please complete one survey per organization. You do not have to give your name unless you want to receive a copy of the results. The deadline is Friday, September 14 at 5 p.m.  

Survey for Nonprofits 
Survey for Funders

Infrastructure providers: If your organization supports some part of the nonprofit infrastructure, please contact [email protected] to participate in a telephone interview. If you are also a nonprofit, you may complete the nonprofit survey too. 

If you have technical problems, please contact [email protected].   

Thank you for taking time to help inform next steps for the
nonprofit infrastructure in New Mexico!
