Thank you to all our donors!

As we welcome the new year, we want to take a moment to show our appreciation to all our donors who have contributed to the Santa Fe Community College Foundation.
We are so thankful for your 2023 support. Santa Fe Community College Foundation can only help students because of our generous donor community.
Every dollar counts, and each one has been directly utilized to meet student needs. Your donations support students with scholarships, books, and provided much needed food from the campus cupboard food pantry.
We look forward to continuing our combined work in 2024!

Our deepest condolences go out to the family of our dear friend Rick Abeles. Rick passed away on Nov. 15th, leaving a huge mark on the Santa Fe community. He spent his life giving back to the people around him, including the Santa Fe Community College Foundation. Not only did Rick and his wife, Kathy, create an endowment for students, but Rick also served as a board member for SFCCF for seven years and as the board chair for four years. Rick was passionately committed to taking action and being involved in the community. Together, Rick and Kathy were pillars of our community and will be missed.

Thank you for being a part of our community.
