The Foundation exclusively funds nonprofit organizations with offices in Arizona, Nevada, or California, that provide services to their local communities. We focus primarily on medical, child and youth initiatives in three categories:

Del E. Webb Foundation Seed Grants - start-up funds for established nonprofits with promising new program or project ideas. These are one-time only grants intended to kick-start a fledgling concept with high-impact potential. $5,000 - $50,000

Del E. Webb Foundation Community Support Grants - funds for projects that provide measurable, long-term benefits to both the clients and their community. $10,000 - $75,000

Del E. Webb Foundation BIG Innovation Grants - funds for high-payback, game-changing programs or projects that display a likelihood of momentous impact on a focus area. BIG grants need to demonstrably enhance methodologies, improve productivity, reduce costs, extend outreach, expedite program delivery, increase capacity, or strengthen program results in a meaningful way. Priority is given to projects that lead the way for others to replicate the program elsewhere with similar benefits. $100,000 - $2,000,000
