New Mexico Community Foundation (NMCF) introduces its Chispa Awards recognizing non profits across the state that accomplish a lot with very little, helping to improve New Mexico communities. Enlace Comunitario is one of twelve organizations to receive this year’s award and a $7000 unrestricted grant to use for their organization’s general operations.
Chispa, which means “spark”, are awards that are given annually to nonprofits that shine a light in the communities they serve. Nominations were made by community leaders, and final decisions by a volunteer selection committee. None of the Chispa recipients knew their organization had been selected until the day they were presented with the award and grant. There is no process for organizations to apply, or for the general public to make nominations.
