About The Buckaroo Ball Foundations
For 15 years, the Buckaroo Ball Foundation has been dedicated to its mission of raising and distributing funds to non-profit organizations that serve at-risk youth in Santa Fe County. Buckaroo Ball Foundation is now a fund within the Santa Fe Community Foundation. The Ball is run by a group of dedicated volunteers who donate their time and resources to produce what is one of the largest and liveliest fund-raising weekends in the Southwest.

The Buckaroo Ball is produced and managed largely by the volunteer members of the Buckaroo Ball Foundation, and by hundreds of community volunteers. The money that is raised through the Buckaroo Ball is used to produce the event itself and to support our grant recipients.
