The Atrisco Heritage Foundation was created and is operated exclusively for the purposes of promoting and preserving the ancestral and cultural heritage of the general community of Albuquerque, New Mexico, and the history of the Atrisco Land Grant. In furtherance of our mission the Atrisco Heritage Foundation seeks to educate ourselves and others about the history of Atrisco and its people. Moreover, as a community partner we seek out opportunities to provide support to community members that serve to enhance their lives. We recognize that improving the conditions of a community may take many forms so we focus in areas such as economic development, education and cultural forms of betterment. The Atrisco Heritage Foundation is a 501 (c) (3) private operating foundation.
