NMSBVI Foundation


As a land-grant school, New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (NMSBVI) is fortunate to receive funding through New Mexico’s land trust each year. However, expanding enrollments and statewide programming needs have far outstripped the funding that is generated by the land trust. As a result, NMSBVI must rely on additional funding sources to support its growing programs.

As a charitable organization with 501(c)(3) status, the Foundation for the New Mexico School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (NMSBVIF) is charged with raising the necessary funds to preserve and augment programs and services for New Mexico’s students who are blind and visually impaired. Students throughout New Mexico, from birth through high school graduation, receive training services that prepare them for adulthood.

NMSBVI is committed to all students in New Mexico in need of services related to their blindness. The Foundation is committed to identifying the resources that are necessary to make this mission a reality.

Educational Success: Students with visual impairment or blindness have unique learning needs that require specialized instruction. The Foundation provides technology, Braille materials, specialized equipment as well as training for educators in the field of blindness. Donations give each student access learning and progress towards independence.

Independent Living: Independence has many aspects and the NMSBVI Foundation meets the unique needs of learners whose goals include leaving home for advanced education or job training. Funding is needed to provide job coaches, independent living experiences and specialized technology to help students who are blind work in a sighted world.
