COVID-19 Community Support Fund

The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona has established the COVID-19 Community Support Fund to provide flexible resources to nonprofit organizations in southern Arizona that are serving individuals and families impacted by this outbreak. The COVID-19 crisis will be felt throughout our community for months to come and this fund offers long-term assistance to vulnerable populations disproportionately stressed by the outbreak

Arizona nonprofits working to provide basic human needs have reported an average of 20% in increased expenses due to COVID-19.

Funds will be distributed to nonprofit organizations serving Arizona’s most vulnerable with a focus on providing basic human needs and access to healthcare to affected populations, including low-income individuals, residents without access to healthcare, older adults, health care workers, first responders, LGBTQ+ individuals, disabled residents, and communities of color.


COVID-19 Community Resource Guide

COVID-19 Community Resource Guide was created to serve as a one-stop resource for nonprofits, businesses, and individuals in the community who have been affected by the Coronavirus outbreak.
