With a long history and statewide presence, the Arizona Community Foundation has a keen understanding of the diverse people, needs and assets of our state. Our local knowledge and connections, combined with our professional expertise in charitable giving, provide donors with information and personal guidance that is unmatched.
Our statewide network of Regional Affiliates brings together the best thinking of local leadership to address regional needs with the cost-effectiveness of professional, centralized services. In addition to ACF's central office in Phoenix, the six Regional Affiliates are served by staff in five regional offices. Boards of Advisors comprised of local leaders oversee the business of each Affiliate, including local grantmaking. An Affiliate Council with designated representatives from each Affiliate helps guide the statewide network.
The Arizona Community Foundation is confirmed in compliance with the National Standards for U.S. Community Foundations, voluntarily adopting policies and procedures to guarantee that we conduct business not only legally, but ethically.
