FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: May 1st, 2019

Contact: David Carl (505) 288-2465

Albuquerque, NM – Today, Attorney General Hector Balderas announced the default judgement
against an out-of-state non-profit organization that was not complying with state law. This
judgement against the “For All Kids” Foundation is the first of its kind in New Mexico, and the
first as part of a statewide charity compliance sweep being conducted by the New Mexico Office
of the Attorney General.
“New Mexican families and consumer trust non-profits in our state to serve the benevolent
purposes that they claim,” said Attorney General Hector Balderas. “My office is committed to
routing out all non-profits that do not play by the rules, and betray that public trust.”
The “For All Kids” Foundation initially registered with the New Mexico Office of the Attorney
General in 2009, but failed to maintain registration, as required by New Mexico state law. As
part of its charity compliance sweep, the New Mexico Office of the Attorney General filed suit
against the foundation in 2018. Today’s judgement means that this foundation may not exist,
operate or solicit in the State of New Mexico.
Charitable organizations that exist, operate or solicit in New Mexico must be registered with the
Office of the New Mexico Attorney General. For more information on registration, contact our
office at charity.registrar@nmag.gov, or by calling (505) 717-3500 or toll-free as 1-844-255-
9210. For registration FAQs, please visit https://nmdoj.flywheelsites.com/charity-registration-faq.aspx

The image is the New Mexico Department of Justice primary seal. This seal is framed with gold gradient rope and a slim gold bar followed by a thicker dark blue circular bar that has white text that reads, "State of New Mexico" at the bottom and "Department of Justice" at the top. At the center of the seal is a gradient circle with a dark blue roman-inspired Pillar in the shape of New Mexico.
