Private support involves gifts and grants given to the Community College by people (alumni and friends) and institutions (corporations, foundations and organizations) who are committed to helping ENMU-Ruidoso fulfill its mission. Motivations for giving are often varied, and all are important to the ENMU-Ruidoso Foundation and ENMU-Ruidoso. Many individuals view their support as a means of accomplishing personal goals, supporting values and beliefs. Some give simply because they view their support as a good investment. Others value the knowledge and experiences they have received and desire to ensure the same for future generations of students. Perhaps your motivation is to:

  • Remember someone you love or respect by naming a scholarship, professorship, lectureship or even a building
  • Maintain an interest or affinity in a particular program you want to see grow and succeed
  • Demonstrate your leadership and your support for higher education
  • Support your financial or estate planning through philanthropic tax advantages

Whether you want to make a difference for a student, a professor, a department, a program or whether to challenge others to give, you can show your gratitude towards ENMU-Ruidoso through a gift. All gifts are valuable to the ENMU-Ruidoso Foundation because they help us remain among the best community colleges in the region providing the highest quality education.
