Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

The Museum of New Mexico Foundation's goal is to generate the financial resources to develop exhibitions and public/educational programs for the 12 cultural institutions of the Museum of New Mexico system. We directly support these institutions by providing essential services that include fund development, financial management, retail (we operate five museum shops), and advocacy. We indirectly serve the residents of New Mexico, as well as the tourists that come to our state. Through our efforts, we promote the art, culture and history of New Mexico and international folk art. The expected outcome is to allow cultural institutions to showcase dynamic, frequently changing exhibitions and to support robust public and educational programming. Over the next three to five years, we are looking to double the financial support we provide to advance their missions and increase the impact on visitors – both residents and tourists.

The Museum of New Mexico Foundation's membership and development office for the Museum of New Mexico system generates earned and contributed support through five retail shops, a licensing program, a 7,200-household membership program, and a development operation for annual support and planned gifts. In addition, we provide financial service that allows contribution from donors to provide additional resources that are not commingled with state resources. We also provide advocacy to secure state funding for operational budgets and capital maintenance.

The Museum of New Mexico Foundation is a 40-person office that includes a three-person membership team, a five-person development team (two major gifts directors, two research associates, one grants director), a five-person I.T. and financial service department and a 25-person retail operation that operates five museum shops. We have a 50-person Board of Trustees that supports our fundraising efforts. We generate $7.47 million a year of earned and contributed revenue. We collaborate with the New Mexico State Department of Cultural Affairs, the New Mexico Tourism Department, and the City of Santa Fe Tourism and Marketing Department.

In FY2014 and FY2015, we reached our goals for earned and contributed revenue. We increased the size of our membership and donor base. We added a grants officer to produce more revenue from foundations. We more than doubled the net from our retail operation. We intend to add a Planned Giving Officer to our staff, to continue to identify and cultivate donors, and to add a Major Gifts Officer to the staff to review opportunities to engage in capital campaigns for the four state museums we serve in Santa Fe.
