Become a Monthly Donor!
The easiest way to support New Mexico Wild is by a convenient automatic monthly donation from your credit card, debit card or directly from your bank account.
Your gift helps protect New Mexico’s natural treasures from the Gila, one of the last undammed rivers in the country, to the endangered Mexican gray wolf, to threats to historic Chaco Canyonlands.
The Aldo Leopold Circle
Members who donate at least $1,000 each year are automatically added to our Aldo Leopold Circle and can participate in its benefits and events.
Many people use a bequest in their will to make a contribution to a charitable organization that is working on issues that have been important in their life.
