Collaborative Community Initiatives

We are committed to helping our donors make a difference. One way we do that is by building the capacity of the nonprofit sector in Southern Arizona so that our donors’ grants are increasingly effective, year after year.

With the Foundation’s unrestricted funds, we currently invest in a three-year cycle of funding broad-based community collaborations that include the Ajo Regional Food Partnership, ELDER Initiative, and the South Tucson Revitalization Partnership.

On March 20, 2013, the Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits and Arizona Grantmakers Forum are doing something never done statewide in Arizona. Together with partners that include the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, we are taking one day to harness the power of individual contributions statewide, using the power of online giving to connect new and existing investors with thousands of Arizona nonprofits.

The nonprofit sector now has a common set of data that furthers collaboration and program design that meets and anticipates demand. And donors, for the first time, have access to timely and relevant data on the needs in the community, as well as access to research about effective methods to address those needs throughout our region. This project is made possible by a multi-faceted partnership that includes the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona.
