Patagonia Regional Community Fund Grants Celebration
The Patagonia Museum
The Arizona Community Foundation’s Patagonia Regional Community Fund invites you and a guest to join us as we honor the generous donors who enable the PRCF to support nonprofit organizations in eastern Santa Cruz County through annually awarded grants. We will also celebrate the 2023 grantees, local nonprofits serving our community, and the individuals who started and/or now run those nonprofits. The event will also recognize the Burton Family Foundation, a supporting organization of ACF, that has, in recent years, also made generous grants to local nonprofits in conjunction with PRCF’s grantmaking process. Enjoy light appetizers, refreshments, and the company of friends and neighbors while we recognize the individuals and organizations that make our community extraordinary.
