The COVID-19 virus has caused many nonprofit organizations in southern Arizona to cancel fundraising events this spring. These events provide essential financial support for nonprofits to deliver their mission.
According to the Alliance for Arizona Nonprofits, nonprofits reporting revenue impact expect to lose an average of 31% or $240,000 in revenue due to COVID-19, reported ranges: 2-100% and $400-10M in lost revenue. The total loss of reported revenue thus far by Arizona nonprofits is over $36 million.
In response, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona has established the COVID-19 Nonprofit Event Relief Fund. The Fund provides a one-time grant award to organizations that, due to COVID-19, have had to cancel critical fundraising events and programming, resulting in a significant hardship on the organization. This general operating support grant can replace lost revenue and non-recoverable expenses.
