In Your Community
New Mexico Gas Company cares. We believe in giving back to the communities where we live and work. Our staff does that through financial donations and, most importantly, by volunteering their time. New Mexico Gas Company employees have provided thousands of hours of volunteer work across New Mexico to help improve our communities and the services that are offered.
Are you interested in engaging our staff for work with your non-profit? Looking for board members or volunteers for your organization? Please contact Mary Homan, Economic Development and Community Affairs Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our annual United Way and Thrive employee campaign generated more than $170,000 in donations to fund community programs in 2020, while our corporate giving to these organizations and United Way of Central NM’s Mission: Graduate and Mission: Family provided an additional $81,000. New Mexico Gas Company provides over $900,000 in financial support to New Mexico communities and organizations annually in the form of memberships, donations and sponsorships.
