As we approach the end of 2023, I write to you to thank you for your past and continuing support of the New Mexico Philharmonic Foundation (NMPF).
As many of you know, the NMPF was incorporated 6 years ago to provide sustainable, dedicated funding for the New Mexico Philharmonic (NMPhil). This dedicated funding creates long-term stability, future growth, and permanence through a completely transparent and secure fiduciary instrument for donor support. This funding is directly controlled by the NMPF directors and donors. In those 6 years, the NMPF has created a growing endowment of more than $2 million through the wise giving strategies of our donors in the forms of:
- Real estate
- Qualified charitable distributions from IRAs
And like the careful management of resources learned from the management of the NMPhil, the NMPF steadfastly maintains a very low overhead of only 2 percent!
Your contributions help enormously in providing the NMPhil with a reliable source of stable funding that enables multiyear planning that could not be done without the NMPF. But let me be very clear, your contribution to the NMPF should only come AFTER, and not instead of, your support for the NMPhil. We support the NMPhil!
Please complete the enclosed form and mail it in the pre-addressed envelope. You can also make donations online at by clicking the “DONATE ONLINE” button. Again, thank you! Your past and future support of the NMPhil and the NMPF will ensure that professional live symphonic music continues in New Mexico.
