Donaldson said the Hubbards have said many times, the grants made through the Southeast New Mexico Grant Program, to small local non-profit groups such as those announced today, can make such a positive difference in the lives of people. On a personal note, Donaldson said “It was such an honor and pleasure to be able to meet and speak with so many people who provide so many needed services for the people of New Mexico. It is humbling when you meet real people who labor out of the limelight to improve the lives of the citizens in their communities, who don’t just talk about placing others before themselves but live that life every day.”
The Hubbard Foundation awarded nearly $220,500 to 45 different organizations in the seven county region for the Southeast New Mexico Grant Program this year. They received over 82 requests totaling over $847,000. Since 2001, Hubbard Foundation’s Southeast New Mexico Grant Program has provided over $1,812,000 to approximately 350 non-profit organizations in seven counties.
