Heading into this holiday season, the Del Norte LOV Foundation begins another exciting year-end full of giving back and improving lives. The Del Norte LOV Foundation is an independent foundation associated with DNCU and is an employee-driven, nonprofit organization with a mission to improve lives of youth and families in New Mexico through its community support programs, which include scholarships, community grants, financial literacy, sponsorships, and community engagement. The Del Norte LOV Foundation and its partners are hosting events focused on charitable fundraising and giving back to our beloved communities and members during this special time of the year. Mark your calendars for a chance to give back to those you care about this holiday season.
Thrive with LOV Mural Art Project
November 12th kicks off the Thrive with LOV Mural Art Project. The Del Norte LOV Foundation has partnered with Thrive Community School and ARTsmart NM to bring a traveling mural to New Mexico. Students at Thrive Community School are creating a colorful and vibrant 10’ x 10’ mural that will travel to different DNCU branches. Grades K-2 will be focused on paintings embodying “what love means to them” while grades 3-6 will be creating a mural focused on how to “improve lives.” Businesses and members will be given a chance to donate to both classrooms and individual students to support the art mural. This wholesome local mural will be on display at DNCU branches from November 12th through January 23rd, so don’t miss it! See our “Heads Up on Holiday Events” blog for a complete list of dates and locations

Every year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, Giving Tuesday celebrates nonprofits and giving back to our communities. This year’s Giving Tuesday falls on November 29th. What started as nothing more than a benevolent idea, has transformed into a worldwide day/event dedicated to acts of generosity. Giving Tuesday is a global movement focused on charitable donations towards individuals and organizations in need. It is a chance to give back to the communities you love and the nonprofits that keep those communities thriving. Head over to the Del Norte LOV Foundation webpage to donate and give back to our communities this Giving Tuesday.

Grab some popcorn and soda and head on over to the Violet Crown to support your local 501(c)(3) non-profit. Dates and times to be announced.
2023 Del Norte LOV Foundation Calendar Produced by DNCU
Next on the list is the much anticipated 2023 Del Norte LOV Foundation Calendar Produced by DNCU. Previously belonging to DNCU, the Del Norte LOV Foundation is utilizing the calendar as a fundraiser and will offer them with a $5 suggested donation to directly support its 2023 Scholarship Program. The calendar has been a mainstay at DNCU for years, and this one is sure to not disappoint. This year’s theme is “Hometown Pride” featuring local pictures from participating members and stunning views of our beautiful state. The calendar will be distributed from December 1 – 31, 2022 at all eight DNCU branches. The calendar is a must for anyone looking to donate to a good cause while grabbing a long-standing member favorite.
Happy holidays from the Del Norte LOV Foundation to you. Together, let’s improve lives!
