Ruidoso Education Association NEA-NM Wildfire Relief Fund

Donation protected
We are members, educators, employees and friends of the National Education Association who want to help our colleagues when they most need our support. The South Fork and Salt Wildfires affecting New Mexico have already displaced over 8,000 people, including members of the Ruidoso, New Mexico local affiliate.

All donations we receive are distributed to affected NEA State Affiliates for them to distribute to their members through their respective relief programs. NEA Member Benefits will pay any fees imposed by GoFundMe, so 100% of the money raised will go directly to supporting NEA members and their families. Funds will be withdrawn by the NEA Member Benefits Relief Fund and sent to the impacted State Affiliates.

If you would prefer to donate by check:

Please make checks payable to:
