Nusenda Community Rewards 2024 Grant Applications Now Open

July 1, 2024 - For Immediate Release


Albuquerque, N.M. – The Nusenda Foundation recently opened applications for 2024 Community Rewards grants. This program is designed to create positive change and address important needs in the region.


Nusenda Community Rewards grant-giving is focused on five areas: education, healthcare, environment and wildlife, the arts, and community service.

Grant requests are reviewed and awarded by employee volunteers. Selection committees include a variety of employees from across the organization.


“The partners that receive support through Community Rewards are responsible for transformative work in the communities we serve,” said Sara Keller, Nusenda’s Senior Vice President of Community Engagement and Executive Director of Nusenda Foundation. “We are excited to power positive change to help create a place where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.”
