The competitive grants process for 2017 culminated in the awarding of more than $1.3 million to nonprofit organizations, schools, government agencies and Tribal entities serving Flagstaff communities.
In addition to funds distributed through the competitive grants process, donors that have established funds with ACF of Flagstaff award their own grants and scholarships. Their contributions bring the total philanthropic impact to $3 million distributed to support area nonprofit organizations and provide scholarships for local students.
A total of 112 nonprofit organizations received grants this year. Collectively, they serve Flagstaff’s artistic, cultural and educational institutions, promote environmental stewardship, advance health care and support organizations providing valuable social services.
Collaborating for greater impact
The Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff’s collaborative funding model invites local philanthropic entities to leverage their grantmaking capacity in partnership with ACF of Flagstaff. This unique approach to community philanthropy allows local funders to work together and streamlines the grant application for nonprofit organizations by allowing one application to qualify an organization for financial support from multiple funders.
Collaborating partners for the 2017 competitive grants process include Capstone Health Fund, Delta Dental of Arizona Foundation, Ernest & Evelyn Chilson Fund, Forest Highlands Foundation, Full Circle Charities, Geile Charitable Fund, GeoFund, Molly & Joseph Herman Foundation, McClanahan Family Unrestricted Fund, Northern Arizona Healthcare Foundation, Stone Soup Fund, and W. L. Gore & Associates, Inc.
