It may be our story, but it’s all about you.

Mountain America Credit Union first opened its doors in the 1930s with a commitment to guiding our members to define and achieve their financial dreams.

Today, our essence—guidance—remains the focal point of our identity. It’s a purpose-driven identity to ensure that everything we do moves you safely along your journey.

Call it a path, a trail, or simply a way through. Sometimes it’s arrow straight. Other times it has unexpected twists and turns that require knowledge of the road ahead. From wherever you are to where you see yourself going, there is a clear way forward. It’s life’s financial journey, and we’re here to guide you every step of the way.

As your financial partner, we’ll help outfit you with the tools for the journey ahead—like convenient, flexible products and services designed around how you really live, as well as sound, timely advice to help steer you around any obstacles.

This is your journey. Let’s begin together, right here.

Your event is decorated, everyone has arrived, the fundraiser is making money and everyone is happy…. But then someone gets hurt and you realize that you forgot to purchase insurance…now what? What if you discover some of the fundraising money was stolen?

The number one question that most PTAs face today is “Why does my PTA need insurance?” Did you know that you, as an individual member of the PTA or an officer of the PTA could be held personally liable for an accident that occurs at one of your events? Personal Liability means that your personal assets could be at risk if you were sued because of something that happened at one of your PTA events.

Are you willing to put your checking account, your savings account, possibly your 401k or even your assets at risk for your PTA?

Let AIM show you how to protect yourself and your PTA!!

Below are the 4 main types of coverage available to your PTA:

  1. General Liability with Extended Medical Payments Protection against lawsuits for bodily injury or property damage liability resulting from a sponsored event. Endorsements Available: o Extended Medical Payments o Media Liability
  2. Professional Liability (Directors & Officers Liability) Protection for lawsuits against officers of the Organization.
  3. Fidelity Bond (Crime) Protects your Organization’s money.
  4. Inland Marine (Business Personal Property) Protection for business personal property such as fundraising supplies, raffle items or popcorn machines.

Let us help you determine what coverage is right for your PTA!! Contact us today at 1-800-876-4044 or aim@aim-companies.com, or visit our website: www.aim-companies.com.

The Education Plan is New Mexico’s 529 college savings plan. Administered by the Education Trust Board of New Mexico, it offers a tax-advantaged way to save for higher education expenses, including tuition, room and board, books, fees and computer equipment.

The money in a 529 plan can be used at accredited four-year universities, community colleges, professional schools and trade schools across the United States, including traditional and online institutions. Funds in a 529 plan grow tax-free, and withdrawals are also tax-free if used for qualified higher education expenses. For New Mexico residents, 100 percent of contributions to a 529 account with The Education Plan are deductible from New Mexico state taxable income each year.

At The Education Plan, we also work closely with employers to add a 529 plan to employee benefits packages. It’s an easy, no-cost way to support the financial wellbeing of employees. Unlike other benefit programs, The Education Plan requires very little from HR while offering employees the opportunity to save towards education goals for themselves and their loved ones.

At The Education Plan, we help families prepare for and manage future education expenses and help reduce student loan debt. Anyone can open an account for as little as a $1 and make contributions whenever they choose. Visit theeducationplan.com to learn more.

Big Brothers Big Sisters Mountain Region had its beginnings in Santa Fe in 1979. We have since expanded our reach to serve children across much of New Mexico, including programs in the following counties: Doña Ana, Grant, Luna, Los Alamos, McKinley, Mora, Rio Arriba, San Miguel, Santa Fe and Taos. 

Big Brothers Big Sisters operates under the belief that every child has the potential to succeed and thrive. As the nation’s largest donor and volunteer-supported mentoring network, we make meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers and children ages 6-18.  

Our unique one-to-one mentoring helps children achieve success in school, avoid risky behaviors, and improve their self-confidence. Research shows that positive relationships between Littles and their Bigs have a direct and measurable impact on children’s lives. Having a special adult they can turn to gives a Little greater self-confidence, leads to better choices, and generates more hopeful plans for the future.

The New Mexico Public Education Department (PED) believes that strong connections between school, home, and community are paramount to fostering student success. As educators and educational leaders foster strong partnerships with communities, children’s holistic needs are met, and they are increasingly well-prepared for success in school and beyond. Through meaningful two-way communication, stakeholders are able to support and unite in their vision for public education in New Mexico. Just as the PED asks districts and schools to practice equitable and effective family engagement, we believe community engagement is critical to the success of our statewide policies, programs, and initiatives. The PED’s core values include collaboration and responsiveness, both of which are evident in the ongoing work of the Community Engagement team.

At R4Creating, our mission is to provide support for those organizations making valuable contributions to increase the number of STEM opportunities for students. We aim to connect STEM educators with valuable resources in order to prepare students to enter the STEM Workforce Pipeline. Our passion is to support educators and give them the tools to bring STEM into their classrooms by offering Professional Development training in 3D printing for the classroom and offering competitive robotics coaching to help schools build their robotics team programs. We also promote the growth of STEM education and enrichment to students through award-winning robotics teams and a Robotics Leadership Academy, camps and classes with our partner organization, Be Greater Than Average and our new program for girls and by girls, Girls Into Tech.

Learn more about our mission, how you can get involved and how you can support STEM in our community by visiting us at R4creating.org and BeGreaterThanAverage.org
