What We Do

handsTogether, the Community Foundation partners with fellow philanthropists to build a better Southern Arizona through a powerful network of funds.

Because of people like you, we take on the big issues of our region.

In our role as convener, facilitator, collaborator and educator, we work directly with nonprofits, government,  the business community, and our other partners in philanthropy to inspire and enact long-term solutions in areas such as animal welfare, arts and culture, community development, education, environment, health and human services and so much more.

Since our inception in 1980, we have been a leader in change and have nurtured many of the region’s most outstanding nonprofit and educational institutions in search of solving problems and uplifting the region, now and for generations to come. But grantmaking is just one of a variety of giving tools and options that the Community Foundation offers to help people achieve their charitable goals.

Our commitment is helping donors like you make a difference. We’re here to strengthen your philanthropic investments, because we make a greater impact together.
