Historic $1.3 Million Awarded To 61 Local Nonprofits Through CORE Grants Program

The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona (CFSA) is thrilled to announce the sixty-one remarkable nonprofits selected to receive a 2024 CORE Grant. This year, a historic $1.3 million in general operating support was awarded through CFSA’s CORE Grants Program.

CORE Grants offer nonprofits the flexibility to direct grant funds where they are needed most, supporting increased organizational sustainability and impact. Previous grantees have used CORE funding to address emerging issues, boost salaries and benefits, invest in technology and infrastructure, and build communication and fundraising strategies–all leading to a healthier, more innovative, and more robust organization.

Since launching the CORE Grants Program in 2017, CFSA and its donors have awarded over $6 million in unrestricted funding to 142 regional nonprofits working to create a vibrant and equitable Southern Arizona where everyone can thrive.

CORE Grants are made possible through collaboration between our CORE Donor Collaborators, Field of Interest Funds, Unrestricted Funds, and matching funds provided by the Connie Hillman Family Foundation and the Fidelity Charitable® Catalyst Fund.

Congratulations to our 2024 CORE Grantees!

Many thanks to everyone who joined us for our 2024 Community Impact Night to celebrate these remarkable nonprofits AND our inaugural Comunidad Grantees.

Unrestricted funds such as this CORE Grant mean the world to us because it brings with it the freedom to use the funds where needed, or where they can be best leveraged, or where they could impact our capacity in the most significant way. Although the people impacted by our work may not know specifically about these funds, what they do know and appreciate is that they received help, and that means a lot now and for their future.
