The Foundation’s approach to grant making focuses on meeting communities where they are to help them solve the issues they are facing. LOR supports their vision for livability and quality of life by improving their access to nature, recreation, clean water, transportation options, cultural experiences, and economic stability. This strategy is expressed through LOR’s approach to community-driven solutions.


How can I apply for a grant?

The LOR Foundation is steadfast in its commitment and responsibility to meeting communities where they are; first to listen and engage; second to help identify solutions; and third to provide opportunities to support their vision for enhancing livability and quality of life. Based on the collaborative findings, the Foundation’s staff will extend an invitation as part of the next phase of the exploration.

“The interesting and special thing about the LOR Foundation is this idea that great ideas are born within communities.” – Garrett VeneKlasen, Executive Director, New Mexico Wildlife Federation
