Albuquerque, New Mexico (KRQE) – The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on a large number of people throughout the country and throughout New Mexico. One sector of those who have been really hit is nonprofits.
But it didn’t stop them looking for a solution to the problem caused by the pandemic. Tsiporah Nephesh, Founding Director of New Mexico Thrives, discusses what the organization is doing to reach out to hard-working nonprofits.
New Mexico Thrives is a non-profit organization in New Mexico and an affiliate of the National Council of Nonprofits. The organization advocates on behalf of the state’s non-profit sector and provides important information to support their activities.
During the pandemic, nonprofits have served our community and adapted their own practices when faced with their own difficulties. While nonprofits are in increasing demand, they are also facing a decline in revenue as many have had to cancel their annual fundraising events.
Also, the number of volunteers is decreasing. Some nonprofits face the challenge of lack of internet access and that not all work leads to the provision of remote services.
Nephesh explains that when the pandemic began, it was flooded with information and the prosperity of New Mexico helped nonprofits provide important information specific to their work. In addition, New Mexico Thrive worked with the New Mexico Out of School Time Network and Share New Mexico to manage resources to support the activities of nonprofits during a pandemic.
Nonprofits need volunteers because many were classified as high-risk groups during the pandemic. For more information on how to become a nonprofit volunteer, please visit cabq.gov / volunteers. For more information on New Mexico Thrives, please visit nmthrives.org or its Facebook page.
