Nusenda Community Rewards 2022 Grant Applications Now Open
  • To qualify for a Community Rewards funding, organizations must be a 501C3.

Nusenda Foundation recently opened applications for the 2022 Community Rewards grant program.
The grant-giving focuses on five areas: education, healthcare, environment and wildlife, the arts, and community service. This program is made possible through the financial partnership between Nusenda Credit Union and its members, who contribute with qualifying use of their Visa® debit cards. Members help direct which focus areas and regions receive support. Grants are awarded to local organizations and nonprofits to strengthen and support communities where New Mexicans live, work, and play.

Grant requests are reviewed and awarded by employee volunteers.

“Community Rewards grants support some of the most innovative and change-driving community organizations in our state,” said Sara Keller, Nusenda’s vice president of Community Engagement and executive director of Nusenda Foundation. “The community partners we support through Community Rewards work to help New Mexicans thrive.”

In 2021 Nusenda and its members awarded $580,000 to 131 programs, and plans to expand the grant program in 2022.

“Cooking with Kids is honored to be a part of Nusenda’s Community Rewards program,” said Anna Farrier, executive director of Cooking with Kids. “This kind of generous community support makes it possible for Cooking with Kids to provide hands-on nutrition education to thousands of public school kids in Northern New Mexico.”
