Donna Vogel 1947 – 2018

We are greatly saddened that Donna Vogel passed away on February 7, 2018. Donna was a tireless champion for Native American philanthropy as Executive Director of the Chamiza Foundation. Donna served as a NMAG board member for the past six years and was our board chair for the past year. We will all miss her very much. Her kind heart and optimistic spirit will continue to be with us. She will be forever remembered by her husband and soulmate, John, they celebrate 50 years together, and by their daughter Michelle and her husband, Clifton Tanabe and their children, who were the light of Donna’s life, Siera, Ben and Justina.

Donna joined the Chamiza Foundation as its Executive Director in April, 2006. The Chamiza Foundation is a New Mexico private, family foundation that provides grant support for grassroots initiatives in New Mexico’s 19 Pueblo tribal communities.
