Listed below are the organizations that have either supported the Taos Arts Council through donations or grants or are otherwise in alignment with the TAC mission and goals. These organizations are also listed as a resource for other similar non-profits as considerations to apply to. Also the Taos Arts Council may be able to act (depending on board vote) as a 'Fiscal Agent' for any organizations that need a registered non-profit to act in their behalf if they do not have full non-profit status yet awarded by the IRS. The TAC recently assisted Ballet Taos in this regard while they have worked towards full non-profit status. Please contact the TAC at info@toasartscouncil.org for further information.

Northern Rio Grande National Heritage Area 
The mission of the NRGNHA is to help sustain the communities, languages, cultures, traditions, heritage and environment of Northern New Mexico. Actions to achieve our mission are built around specific strategies.

Some of our work supports individual organizations that are presenting and preserving traditions and elements of the culture. One recent highly successful project provided funding to the Site Steward Foundation for creation of a DVD, A Gift From the Earth, which guides and demonstrates traditional pottery making in North Central New Mexico for distribution to schools. In other projects we have supported creation of student videos in the Española High School, provided funding for the Santa Fe Youth Symphony Mariachi group, and supported a Tribal youth farm project at San Ildefonso Pueblo.

We also provide grants and technical support to community development programs, non-profit groups and organizations, and local and tribal governments engaged in efforts to sustain their communities’ traditions, heritage and culture. Some of these grants funded preservation or restoration, as for the San Miguel Mission, La Sala de Galisteo Community Center, or the Martínez Hacienda in Taos. Others provided for recording of history or inventory of resources, as in projects for the Acequia Agua Fria and the Mesa Prieta Petroglyphs. Read More...
