Basic Grant Guidelines:

Nonprofit organizations serving Pima County are invited to submit grant applications that focus on collaborative, innovative programs designed to improve educational outcomes. The definition of education is very broad; examples include, but are not limited to, projects that focus on early childhood, retention strategies to keep children in school, enrichment and other non-traditional opportunities, leadership development, the acquisition of specific skills, or preparation for higher education. Grant requests up to $10,000 will be considered.

Workshop A: September 13 from 9 – 11 a.m. OR

Both workshops will be held at the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, 2250 E. Broadway Blvd., Tucson.
