New Mexico Association of Grantmakers is hosting the New Mexico Broadband Collective, made up of a diverse group of funders and tribal, nonprofit, and government representatives across New Mexico to support a statewide approach to ensuring that broadband services are available to all New Mexicans. Rural communities, Native communities, and other communities most impacted by the lack of broadband connectivity are, especially in need. With the support and partnership of the New Mexico Foundation, the NM Broadband Collective has launched a fund to support issues related to broadband in hard-to-connect communities. You can find and donate to this fund by visiting here and selecting “Broadband Collective Fund.”
