The 2023 UNM Gives United Way campaign continues through Nov. 30. As our community and country struggle with the continuing challenges of COVID-19, poverty, and crime, your support and compassion has never been more critical. Every contribution counts and every gift makes a difference.
This year’s UNM Gives United Way campaign runs through Nov. 30 and includes #GivingTuesday, a global movement of generosity designed to unleash the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world. United Way of Central New Mexico (UWCNM) collaborates with hundreds of community partners to focus and align around a set of shared strategies designed to improve family stability and educational attainment. These two initiatives represent a comprehensive approach to improving outcomes for children, youth, and families at scale.
Ways to donate to the UNM Gives Campaign
A number of opportunities exist for interested individuals to donate to the UNM Gives campaign including:
- Donating directly to the United Way of Central New Mexico to benefit charitable programs and organizations in our community. When you donate to a cause, you know your contribution is making the difference you desire.
- Donate to the UNM Foundation, an entity responsible for raising private financial support benefiting UNM and helping donors link their passions with the institution. If you wish to support a UNM program, scholarship or focus area.
- Donating time and talent is just as important as financial support. Interested individuals can log donated time to local nonprofits as part of the campaign. Faculty, staff and students donate thousands of hours yearly, which could also be designated for the UNM Gives Campaign. Volunteering connects our pack with local community service organizations.

“Commitment to community, generosity of spirit, and an endless capacity for kindness are all hallmarks of the Lobo way of life,” said UNM President Garnett S. Stokes. “Our annual UNM Gives Campaign provides our faculty and staff with an opportunity to provide compassionate and effective support for communities across New Mexico, many of which are still struggling to recover from a devastating pandemic. Your contribution to the United Way of Central New Mexico helps our pack give back—and change lives for the better.”
