Ways to Give | UNM Health System | Albuquerque, New Mexico

You Can Make A Difference
Your generosity can help improve the health care experience for all New Mexicans. Gifts of time and resources to UNM Health support nationally recognized health education, research and patient centered care for all who walk through our doors.

Giving Opportunities

The UNM Foundation in coordination with UNM Health allows our community to donate through established funds. 100% of your donation is transferred to UNM Health after processing. Many of our funds are program specific, however, there are funds which support general and urgent needs at the hospital, children’s hospital and our clinics across New Mexico.

Planned Giving

Making a planned gift is a wonderful way to show your support and appreciation for our healthcare workforce while accomplishing your personal, financial, estate-planning and philanthropic goals. The Office of Planned Giving at the University of New Mexico Foundation assists individuals and their advisors as they develop charitable estate gifts to support UNM. The UNM Foundation is a separate nonprofit organization that raises, invests, and manages private gifts for the benefit of UNM.

UNM Children’s Hospital is only able to accept new, unopened and unused items due to allergen and infection concerns. Staff members distribute items as needed to patients and families throughout our hospitals and clinics.
