About this funder:




Phoenix Suns Charities announced a new grant application process that affords local nonprofit organizations the opportunity to tell their story with a dynamic video submission to demonstrate the scope and impact of their organization’s work.

Local nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply for funding by submitting an engaging 90-second video to demonstrate how they are improving the lives of Arizonans. The revamped grant application process allows Phoenix Suns Charities to make a greater impact throughout the state by offering unrestricted funding for the first time ever, as philanthropic organizations are able to apply for grants that support their mission and programs to make a positive impact throughout Arizona.

Since its inception in 1988, Phoenix Suns Charities has been focused on making our community a better place through its mission of supporting children and family services throughout Arizona and has distributed more than $33 million to local non-profits and organizations in need. The entire Suns organization has embedded itself locally by supporting community efforts through hundreds of player appearances and thousands of volunteer hours by Suns players and staff.

Phoenix Suns Charities will accept one proposal per 501c3 that benefits and supports children and families in Arizona from the following areas:

  • Health/Human Services
  • Education
  • Sports/Recreation

In addition, organizations that have received funding from PSC in the past will be permitted to submit one additional proposal for a $50,000 or $100,000 Playmaker Grant

Grants are unrestricted and will range from $2,500 to $15,000. Employees and Board of Directors will view and vote on submissions. Highest rated applicants will receive most funds.
