To honor our friend Jennifer Riordan we have renamed the Educate2Elevate Grant (E2E) as the Jennifer Riordan E2E Grant (JRE2E). This is a collaborative funding opportunity that brings together funders from across New Mexico to pool resources and make at least one high impact grant of $50,000. This grant is a collaborative investment from funders in various sectors and we encourage organizations to demonstrate similar collaborative thinking when submitting applications.
