Why choose to invest with us?

We make it easy. For any contribution you’ll receive an immediate tax deduction, you don’t have to be overwhelmed with paperwork and tax complications because we take care of all the administrative work for you. So invest with us, sit back, and let your investments grow.

We are all about philanthropy. Our organization is a sustainable solution for supporting the non-profit sector and helping them thrive. This is the key difference between our organization and private foundations, we are a non-profit 501(c)3 and the fees we receive go back into the community of Los Alamos County. You can rest easy knowing that your money is going back into the community to create a stronger, more sustainable nonprofit sector.

Work with local experts. Not only are we knowledgeable in the local needs and opportunities unique to Los Alamos County, but we spend a lot of time vetting our team of experts to ensure you get the most qualified people on your side. We vet our financial managers quarterly, interview them annually to ensure we’re reaching our goals, and our organization receives an external audit every year. We do all of this to ensure that our financial practices are not only fully transparent but are in line with our moral and ethical responsibility to the community.
