Payroll Deductions

You may give through a payroll deduction if your employer participates in the United Way of Central New Mexico’s Community Fund. Employers match their employees’ contributions and all administrative costs are paid for by corporate partners.

Donor Advised Funds

A donor-advised fund, or DAF, is a giving account established at a public charity. It allows donors to make a charitable contribution, receive an immediate tax deduction and then recommend grants from the fund over time. Conceived by community foundations decades ago, today donor-advised funds (DAFs) are one of the fastest-growing giving vehicles in the U.S. If you have a DAF already, scroll to the bottom of our donate page to set up a one-time or recurring DAF grant to New Mexico Voices for Children.


You can make a very simple and safe donation through PayPal here.

Planned Giving

Including New Mexico Voices for Children in your planned giving provides you the opportunity of creating a legacy of helping New Mexico’s children and families. Generally, planned gifts are made through a bequest in a will, a charitable trust or annuity, or a gift of real estate, personal property (stocks or bonds), or life insurance. A planned gift provides a means for an individual to make a larger gift than originally thought possible. And often, current income and estate taxes can be reduced.

Our Endowment

Planned gifts can be directed by the donor to New Mexico Voices for Children through our Endowment with the Albuquerque Community Foundation (505-883-6240).


If you are 70½ years old or over, a qualified charitable distribution (QCD) from your IRA directly to NM Voices can be an advantageous way to give. It has an immediate impact. Although there is no tax deduction, the amount transferred is excluded from your income for federal tax purposes — no tax is due. Transfers up to $100,000 (annual aggregate limit) qualify for this favorable tax treatment each year. (Contributions to an IRA after age 70½ reduce QCD amounts). Qualified charitable distributions can count toward your required minimum distribution.

To make your gift, instruct your IRA custodian to make a direct transfer from your IRA account to:
New Mexico Voices for Children
625 Silver Ave. SW, Suite 195
Albuquerque, NM 87102

Other Planned Giving Options

  • Life Insurance: When the original purpose of life insurance policy no longer exists, donating it to the New Mexico Voices for Children endowment can be a sound part of a financial plan. By naming NM Voices as the owner/beneficiary of a new or existing life insurance policy, the costs of the premiums for such a gift may be deducted from your taxable income.
  • A Will: Including New Mexico Voices for Children in your will can be a convenient way to leave a legacy.
  • Charitable Gift Annuity: You can avoid capital gains tax, receive a one-time tax deduction, and receive an income from the gift for life. Cash and appreciated assets (like stocks and securities) may be used to fund these trusts.
  • Living Trust: Many individuals establish trusts to provide for the management and final distribution of their assets.
  • Charitable Remainder Trust: A gift through a charitable remainder trust has dual benefits. First, the annual income goes to you or your designee for the remainder of your life or theirs. Second, this type of gift yields an income tax deduction in the year of its completion.
  • Charitable Lead Trust: A charitable lead trust can provide immediate endowment funding. Interest payments are devoted to the endowment for a period of time you choose. When the time has elapsed, the assets return to you or your designee.
