CFSA Establishes COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to Support Nonprofits

TUCSON, AZ (March 12, 2020) – The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona (CFSA) announced the establishment of the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund to allow our community to support nonprofit organizations in southern Arizona that have had to cancel events as a result of the outbreak. CFSA has seeded the Fund with an initial gift of $10,000.

The COVID-19 virus has caused many nonprofit organizations in southern Arizona to cancel fundraising events this spring. These events provide essential financial support for these nonprofits to deliver their mission.

In response, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona has established the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. The fund will provide grants to nonprofit organizations that have had to cancel these critical fundraising events. An online process will be developed for nonprofits to apply for grants from the fund.

CFSA President and CEO Clint Mabie shared, “CFSA is committed to supporting our nonprofit partners during this time of uncertainty. Our goal is to always be responsive to the needs of the community and help ensure that the mission-critical services provided to our community by our nonprofit partners continue without interruption.”
