The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona (CFSA) has established two COVID-19 Response Funds to provide grants to nonprofits in Pima and Santa Cruz Counties affected by COVID-19.
COVID-19 Nonprofit Event Relief Fund
The COVID-19 virus has caused many nonprofit organizations in southern Arizona to cancel their annual fundraising events this spring. These events provide essential financial support for nonprofits to deliver their mission throughout the year. The total loss of revenue reported so far by Arizona nonprofits is nearly $37 million.
The Event Relief 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.
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
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.
