About this funder:



The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona and its community partners have established two funds to support nonprofits in our southern Arizona service area during this difficult time. Our pledge as a foundation is that 100% of these funds will go directly to support nonprofits in our community. Grant applications are now open and will be accepted on a rolling basis.

CFSA’s COVID-19 Community Support Fund

The COVID-19 Community Support Fund provides flexible resources to southern Arizona nonprofit organizations 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 those most affected.

The COVID-19 Community Support Fund is designed to complement other available resources and to expand our local capacity to address the needs of 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. Funds may be available for other populations and needs as they emerge.
