The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) exists for one reason: to accelerate the next generation of Parkinson’s disease (PD) treatments. In practice, that means identifying and funding projects most vital to patients; spearheading solutions around seemingly intractable field-wide challenges; coordinating and streamlining the efforts of multiple, often disparate, teams; and doing whatever it takes to drive faster knowledge turns for the benefit of every life touched by PD.
In principle, it means leveraging the core values of urgency, optimism, efficiency, accountability and persistence in problem-solving to work on behalf of the 6 million people worldwide living with Parkinson’s.
The Taos Center for the Arts draws on its history as a dynamic leader for arts collaboration and partnership. Originally established by a group of working artists in 1953 and situated in the heart of Taos, the TCA serves and engages Northern New Mexico communities. With a 275-seat theater and two galleries, the TCA curates culturally relevant films, art exhibitions, and live performances as well as provides local, regional and internationally renowned artists, thinkers and performers the space to inspire creativity and foster a thriving love for the arts.
One of the main goals for Taos Community Foundation is helping citizens meet basic needs in order to ensure that all residents can attain, maintain and sustain self-sufficiency. TCF and our partners also plan initiatives for education and information access, creating a firm foothold and making possible the step-up for individuals and families to think and do differently, and thereby to contribute to positive change in the communities.
Women coming together to collectively focus on the unique needs of women and children in our communities.
Women Give – Taos Initiative asks women with power, in all its forms (financial, philanthropic, social, leadership, voice, influence and access to networks) to take action, step forward, join together in learning, and actively engage in strategic philanthropy. Applying a ‘gender lens’ is to take into account how gender norms (and biological differences) affect women and girls, as well as men and boys, when assessing funding opportunities. Countless studies have shown us, that when women and girls thrive, so do communities, countries and the world as a whole.
