These approaches strive to transform systemic barriers to economic self-determination for women in New Mexico, and include:

Groups must qualify under the 501(c)3 tax-exempt section of the Internal Revenue Code or have a 501(c)3 fiscal agent.

In addition, NMWF requires that an organization show evidence that it:

  • Responds to the needs of women by helping them become entrepreneurs.
  • Promotes and develops women's leadership abilities.
  • Creates programs that allow women to stay in their communities and produce services or products.
  • Provides an environment conducive to awakening dormant creativity that exists in most women.

NMWF does not support individuals; campaigns to elect public officials; religious organizations for religious purposes; programs or projects inconsistent with federal, state and local discrimination or ordinances regarding equal employment opportunity; and applications submitted after the stated deadline and hour.
