Since the 1984 deposit of $36,000 that funded the beginning of the NMHU Foundation, more than $12 million has been gifted, distributed or placed in endowments for NMHU. Now, with more than $6 million in assets, the NMHU Foundation continues to award more than $200,000 in scholarships annually and fund special projects and programs of the university.

Leadership by the Foundation Board resulted in the acquisition and building of the Rio Rancho site, renovations to Sininger Hall, Ilfeld Auditorium, and Perkins Stadium. Employee and alumni recognition ceremonies and awards are made possible each year from funding by the Office of Institutional Advancement and the Foundation and Alumni organizations.
