The Rio Grande Foundation, New Mexico’s free-market think tank and public policy organization, effectively communicates rigorous policy research to local and state governments in New Mexico.

Your donation to the Foundation will advance your principles—free enterprise, limited government, and individual freedom—at a time when our state needs these principles most.

We offer special giving club opportunities:

If you give $1,000 or more, you’ll join our President’s Council. As such, you’ll receive a framed President’s Council certificate, and special updates on hot topics. You’ll also receive priority seating at our events.

A gift of $5,000 or more will make you part of our Becknell Society, named after the Father of the Santa Fe Trail. You’ll receive a framed Becknell Society certificate, and be invited to exclusive legislative policy meetings.

And a gift of $10,000 or more will make you part of our Gadsden Society, named after James Gadsden, who negotiated the purchase of much of southern New Mexico. You’ll receive a specially engraved Gadsden Society plaque. Plus, you’ll receive personal updates from me, and be invited to join us at our events and dinners with VIPs and Board members.

Please choose how you’d like to donate. We invite you to make a one-time contribution that fits your budget. Everything counts, and we can’t do this work without you. If your budget is limited, we encourage you to consider signing up for a recurring monthly contribution. Monthly contributions help sustain us no matter the level, adding up to significant support for New Mexicans.

The Rio Grande Foundation is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization and charitable contributions are tax-deductible for income, gift and estate taxes. Our federal tax identification number is 85-0468446.Your
