Thank you for your support of the New Mexico Allied Council on Tobacco (NM ACT)! Strengthening partnerships and collaborations to save lives by reducing commercial tobacco abuse.
Your Gift Really Makes a Difference!
Your gift, no matter the size, contributes to the New Mexico Allied Council on Tobacco’s (NM ACT) mission: to advocate for proven tobacco use prevention policies through statewide partnerships to improve and save lives by reducing commercial tobacco abuse. We accomplish our mission by working to strengthen partnerships and collaborations, including educating partners about effective, research-based practices; educating partners about risks posed by emerging tobacco products, non-FDA approved nicotine delivery systems or devices, and current tobacco industry tactics; and educating partners about emerging science and the changing knowledge base of commercial tobacco control. Through these activities, we develop advocacy priorities and strategies that lead to positive tobacco legislative processes.
There are so many ways that you can personally make a difference. To those of you who already support us, we want you to know how much we appreciate you.
Whether it is through support of the Operations or Programs Fund, a planned gift, a gift of In-Kind, or an individual cash gift, your involvement shows a powerful commitment to working together to reduce the burden of chronic disease on individuals, organizations, communities, and systems in New Mexico.
