Mission Statement

Leverage public/private partnerships to initiate and facilitate improvements in our community’s health and well being.


Rio Grande Valley Partners (RGVP) is a New Mexico 501(c)(3) that is now positioned to bridge the gap between the conception and delivery of effective community development activities and to increase the resources available for those efforts. 

The historical focus of the organization has been on linear fundraising relationships in support of community and charitable efforts.  A number of worthwhile causes including, Lupus Foundation of New Mexico, Special Olympics New Mexico and United Blood Services have benefited significantly over the years.

While past efforts have been satisfyingly productive, over time it has become apparent that by widening the focus of the organization and participating to a greater degree in all aspects of the conception, funding and delivery process, the impact on the community could be greatly enhanced.  The subsequent development and application of the Public Private Partnership (P3) Model, which includes a regimen of recurrent program evaluation, has produced results that justify the increased investment of time and effort to the variety of causes.
