In partnership with our generous donors and supporters, Community Foundation for Southern Arizona has awarded over $1.7 million in COVID-19 relief funding over the last 15 weeks. This includes $300,000 to help minority and women-owned small businesses and nonprofit organizations access PPP loans and $25,000 to provide pivot grants for local artists and arts organizations.
Grant applications are now open and will continue to be awarded on a rolling basis as fundraising continues.
CFSA’s COVID-19 Response Grants directly support those most affected by the crisis with access to basic necessities like food for youth, families, and seniors, childcare for medical workers, legal services and rent assistance for low-income community members, diapers for infants and incontinence supplies for seniors, and protective equipment for first responders.
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.

This page will be updated daily as we receive new information.
