The Frost Foundation
Grants to New Mexico and Louisiana nonprofit organizations for environmental, educational, and human services programs. The Foundation’s efforts are directed primarily to support exemplary organizations and programs which can generate positive change beyond traditional boundaries, to promote innovation addressing critical issues, and to foster creativity which recognizes emerging needs.
The Foundation wishes to encourage self-reliance, creativity and ingenuity on the part of prospective recipients.
The Foundation provides initial impetus to exemplary organizations and programs, to operating funds, to pioneering organizations and programs which other institutions might similarly use, and to programs which have potential for wider service or educational exposure than an individual community.
The Foundation encourages collaborations, mergers and the formation of alliances among agencies within the community to reduce duplication of effort and to promote a maximum effective use of funds. The Foundation also considers requests for operating.
