NMSU is subject to the anti-donation clause in the New Mexico Constitution which prohibits state governmental entities from donating or providing support to any private entity, including charitable organizations. Charitable activities which are organized and undertaken by chartered student or employee organizations, and which do not require the use of public funds or resources, and do not impose a material cost on NMSU, do not violate the law and are permitted, but not endorsed by NMSU. Supervisors are not permitted to ask their subordinates to support charitable activities.
