We join with the rest of our community in mourning the passing of one of our most beloved supporters, LaDonna Hopkins.
LaDonna embodied all the best that community is: she worked tirelessly and creatively to make sure families had opportunity, compassionately offered a listening ear, and was quick to lend a helping hand to those in need.
LaDonna worked deeply in many ways throughout Albuquerque’s philanthropic community and was always a champion and advisor for Saranam. She enriched our work and we are so thankful to have known her.
-Tracy Weaver, Saranam Executive Director
She was involved in several organizations in Albuquerque, but had a special connection to Saranam. Her son, Sean Hopkins, was Saranam's Director of Development before passing in 2013. LaDonna continued her son's legacy, and took special joy in the learning about the activities kids at Saranam could participate in with the help of his memorial fund.
Her kindness and warmth will be dearly missed, but her passionate care will continue to inspire people in the community she loved so deeply.
