Giving Back to the Community
We promote the Española Community Matanza as an "event for the people, by the people" because this event is only possible by the monetary and in kind donations by local individuals and businesses. This event is a true representation of the overall spirit of the people of the beautiful Española Valley-that of togetherness. This event brings the community together by sharing a feast of cultures to celebrate it's diversity, while promoting a strong sense of giving back.
Our Mission is to donate a portion (60%) of the proceeds from the Española Community Matanza each year back into the community. This is our way of investing into the community, who continues to invest into us. In 2018, for our first contribution, we decided to donate to three different organizations throughout the community.
Española YMCA Teen Center - $1,400 Recipient.
H.O.P.E - $1,400 Recipient.
Food 4 Kids NM - $1,400 Recipient.
The Española Community Matanza Board is pleased to announce, that a portion of the proceeds from the 2019 Española Community Matanza will be utilized as scholarships via the Northern Foundation. We believe in the importance of education, and recognize the need for more financial assistance for students yearning to achieve a higher education.
Because our core mission of the Española Community Matanza Board is to utilize the Matanza as a platform to give back to the community, we strongly believe this investment is the best way to do so.
We hope to see your participation at the 2019 Española Community Matanza, scheduled for May 4th, 2019 at the NNMC Campus.
