Community Winds to host giving event

The Los Alamos Community Winds is participating in the largest giving event in history, “Give Grande New Mexico.”
The May 6 event brings together with communities across the country, including people from Los Alamos to come together on a single day to designate gifts to organizations already doing important work in the community.
A partnership between the Coalition of Community Foundations in New Mexico and local nonprofits, hundreds (if not thousands) of donors from every neighborhood in the community will come together on a single day to raise significant funds for local needs.
Give Grande New Mexico is part of a national campaign happening that same day called Give Local America. Both the national campaign and New Mexico’s campaign is supported by a pool of matching funds.
