The McCune Foundation is heartbroken by the individual and systemic racism that continues to perpetrate violence and injustice against people of color across our country and in our state. We stand in solidarity with the Black community and with all who are advocating for justice and equitable social transformation. As a funder, we are committed to understanding how we contribute to our inequitable system and, as a result, changing how we fund. We will continue listening to communities affected by social inequity and support collective work to achieve long term, systemic change.
Effective March 16, 2020, the McCune Charitable Foundation staff began working remotely to help lessen the potential impacts of the COVID-19 in our communities. We anticipate maintaining remote operations indefinitely, however we will continue to respond to conditions as they evolve. We expect to have a staff member available at the Santa Fe office from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Thursday for essential functions and to answer questions. The office number is 505.983.8300. We realize this is a challenging situation for all of us in New Mexico and will do what we can to support our families and communities.
