Santa Cruz Community Foundation

Who we are

An affiliate of the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, The Santa Cruz Community Foundation (SCCF) is a permanent charitable resource that was founded in 2001 by area residents to empower their community to invest in itself. SCCF assists Santa Cruz County to prepare for the future by strengthening the community through the awarding of scholarships and grants to nonprofit organizations.

As SCCF’s umbrella organization, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona (CFSA) provides expertise and skilled guidance to help donors give back in ways that are aligned with their charitable and financial goals. The Board of Trustees oversees the Foundation’s growing community endowment – which includes assets earmarked for Santa Cruz County – and ensures that donors’ intentions are honored now and forever. Last fiscal year, the Foundation distributed over $7 million.
