Donors Honored for Helping Exceed Donation Goals
The 3rd Annual LANL MSC Donor Appreciation Dinner was held on Friday, October 7, 2016 at the Inn and Spa at Loretto. The event was to recognize those companies that are part of the LANL Major Subcontractors Consortium that have donated money to the MSC and in particular, the Grant Pool.
These donations help to fund grants awarded through the LANL MSC and the New Mexico Community Foundation to organizations that help create synergy, grow jobs, and strengthen the economy. This year alone we were able to exceed our goal and raised over $40,000 from 19 member companies and due to our partnership with Los Alamos National Security (LANS) who gave us a match of $40,000 we were able to raise over $80,000 which will go directly back into the Northern New Mexico Community.
We had over 80 attendees from the donor companies, executives from Los Alamos National Lab, and regional dignitaries. We were particularly pleased to have Dave Lyons, Executive Director of Los Alamos National Lab speak about our collaboration in the community. There were 6 companies that donated at the Platinum level of $5,000 and above, 6 at the Gold level of $2,500 to $4,999 and 6 at the Silver level of $1,250 to $2,499.
