Dear friends,

On behalf of the Nacha Mendez Music Scholarship board, staff, advisors, and Executive Director, I heartily thank you, our generous supporters, for your contributions to the Gary Lee Nelson matching fund campaign. We are thrilled to announce that we reached our goal of $5,000 in less than one week! With Gary Nelson’s matching grant, this means we have raised a grand total of $10,000 that will go directly towards scholarship awards for young musicians in New Mexico this year!!!! 

Your donations enable us to support New Mexican girls of color to achieve their musical dreams. 

¡Muchisimas gracias! 

Carla Kountoupes, Board President, NMMS
