Stagecoach Foundation is a proud support center to local vendors, businesses, universities and schools to help reach a shared, common goal: economic development, job training, job creation and job stability within film, education and technology (FET) fields.

Working toward that goal, Stagecoach Foundation presents a dynamic range of free-to-the-public classes, presentations and roundtables that educate, engage and build community around film, technology and a sustainable economic future for northern New Mexico.

Following is a listing of Educational Workshops, Field Trips, Speaking Events and Sponsorships Stagecoach Foundation has developed and launched since it opened its doors in March 2017.
