Con Alma Health Foundation Grants

Con Alma provides grants for three purposes:

  • Project Support to organizations seeking funding for a specific set of activities, a limited period of time, focused group of beneficiaries, or particular goals that fall within the organization’s mission, but do not include your entire scope of operations.
  • We provide General Operating/Core Support for organizations that need funding for their mission and scope of operations in their entirety, without a particular project focus. Organizations that primarily or exclusively provide direct services are not eligible to apply for general operating/core support.
  • Technical Assistance/Capacity Building funding is available for projects focused on expanding or improving the ability of an organization (and/or non-profit sector) to fulfill its purpose and carry out its mission effectively.

You may apply once, for one type of funding (except if applying to the Northern NM Health Grants Group). You are not guaranteed to receive the type of funding you select. If, upon review of your application, we feel another type of funding is more appropriate, we will revise the type accordingly and may request additional information from you.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
