Connecting Non-Profits and the Community 

The Chamber works to support our local nonprofits through the Nonprofit Alliance (NPA). This initiative seeks to develop and strengthen partnerships among the nonprofit, private and public sectors in order to help improve quality of life in the area. The NPA strives to raise awareness of the economic impact, needs and values of local non-profit organizations.

Rio Rancho Community Foundation

The Rio Rancho Community Foundation is a primary source for philanthropy within Sandoval County.  We connect people, non-profits and resources to benefit all within the Region. We work with non-profits and philanthropists to raise money so that organizations have the resources to make an impact in our community.


GivingTuesday is an opportunity for people around the world to use their individual power of generosity to remain connected and support their communities. It’s a day when everyone comes together to give back in all forms-acts of kindness, gifts of voice, time, talent or treasure.
