Cooperative Network Spotlight

We love to highlight members and community stakeholders in our Cooperative Network and showcase their great work across the community!  This month, we highlight Cooperative Network member, Tsiporah Nephesh of New Mexico Thrives!

Tsiporah Nephesh is the Founder and Executive Director of New Mexico Thrives, New Mexico’s state nonprofit association.  Prior to starting New Mexico Thrives, she served nonprofits for ten years as the Program Coordinator with the Center for Nonprofit Excellence, United Way of Central New Mexico.

Tsiporah brings a passionate commitment to working with nonprofits to create positive sustainable change for New Mexico.  She believes that “we’re not all there, until we’re all there.”  Equity and inclusiveness are essential tenets of her work.
