IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Arizona Community Foundation has been closely monitoring the recommendations of public health officials in response to the developing coronavirus outbreak.

To protect your health and that of our staff, we are canceling all external organizations’ meetings and events at the ACF office located at 2201 E. Camelback Road, including those in the Debi Bisgrove Community Philanthropy Center, for the time being to minimize non-essential personal contact.

If you have questions, please contact Michael Ponzio at or 602.682.2068.

The Arizona Community Foundation's Debi Bisgrove Community Philanthropy Center is available for use by qualified nonprofit organizations, free of charge (save for a cleaning fee).

Seating capacity

The facility can be used in full, with a maximum seating capacity of 100 people, although various table and chair configurations may reduce this capacity. When divided into two spaces, each space can hold up to 50 people.
