When to Give

For nearly 40 years, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona has worked hand-in-hand with individual and family donors like you to create legacies that provide effective solutions to complex issues, fulfilling visions of a stronger Southern Arizona. Whether you are thinking about giving for the first time, or want to revisit your current plan, we are here for you, now and forever.

Give Now or Give Later?

  • Give Now. An outright gift to the Community Foundation or a fund of the Community Foundation is the fastest and simplest way to create impact in the areas closest to your heart.
  • Give Later. Start a fund now to determine the intent of your philanthropy. Depending on your wishes, the gift would not be received or distributed until after your lifetime.

Join the Legacy Society:

  • Become a philanthropist after your lifetime. The Legacy Society recognizes donors whose foresight and generosity will benefit future generations through deferred gifts and estate plans. These individuals have made a commitment to the future of our community by naming the Community Foundation in their wills, qualified retirement plans, life insurance policies, trusts or other instruments.
