The OneAZ Community Foundation was established in 2016 as a not-for-profit charitable foundation. The foundation supports local causes that improve the communities where Arizonans live and work.

Private nonprofits keep Arizona moving, especially in challenging times. As the COVID-19 pandemic developed, we saw that many organizations were facing lost funding and a lack of volunteers. We knew we had to act. We immediately launched an emergency COVID-19 Community Impact Grant program, offering a total of $200,000 in grants to 100 nonprofits in need.

2020 Community Impact Grants

Since launching in 2016, OneAZ Community Foundation has provided nearly $600,000 in Community Impact Grants to nonprofits that improve our communities and align with the pillars of support.

In 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic hit Arizonans hard. Many private nonprofits found themselves in financial hardship due to unforeseen circumstances including lost funding, forced temporary closure and lack of volunteers.

OneAZ Community Foundation quickly mobilized, and within a matter of days the emergency COVID-19 Community Impact Grant program was rolled out. Due to unprecedented application volume, all grants were awarded within two weeks. 100 Arizona nonprofits in need received grants of $2,000 each, totaling $200,000.
