About the 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.

The foundation assists Santa Cruz County  to prepare for the future by strengthening the community, through local scholarships,  grants and training, nonprofits (NPOs) on both sides of the border. There is a diverse set of NPOs on the border ranging from job training programs, community centers, boys and girls clubs, arts groups, environmental restoration, agriculture, indigenous arts and culture, humane societies, libraries, children’s homes, domestic violence abuse programs, migrant shelters and soup kitchens that exist to alleviate the many inequalities and social and economic problems of the region.
