At the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona, 2023 was a time of listening and learning, a time to examine every aspect of our work. It was a time to refine our why and improve our how.

The needs we are seeing and the systemic nature of the challenges we face in climate, housing, and education call for bold solutions and the collective commitment of our community to enact real, lasting change. We are grateful to everyone who shared their time, knowledge, and perspectives throughout the year. Your input was essential to the development of our new strategic plan — BLOOM — and a new mission and vision to guide our work.

Mission: To build a thriving Southern Arizona through philanthropy.
Vision: A vibrant and equitable community for all Southern Arizonans, now and forever.

In the coming year, we will continue learning and cultivating deep community knowledge to support our donors and professional advisor partners and will reimagine how we communicate actionable information to all of our community collaborators.

Thank you for your partnership in creating a Southern Arizona where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. When we work together, the impossible becomes possible.

In Southern Arizona, we BLOOM together.
