ACF of Flagstaff commits $110,000 in response to COVID-19

The Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff has announced that it will match up to $110,000 in gifts to its Flagstaff/Northern AZ COVID-19 Community Response Fund, dollar-for-dollar, to assist nonprofit organizations and community groups in all of northern Arizona who are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

“The community response fund will support the health and well-being of our friends and neighbors most directly affected by the COVID-19,” said Pats Shriver, Regional Director, ACF of Flagstaff. “While we remain hopeful that preventative measures will minimize the spread of the outbreak in northern Arizona, the time to act is now.”  

 Gifts to this fund will be restricted to support Flagstaff and Northern Arizona nonprofits facing an increased demand for services from clients and communities as a result of the COVID-19 outbreak. ACF of Flagstaff is committed to working with other funding partners and community collaborators to move resources quickly and adapt to evolving community needs in order to support gaps not covered by state or federal relief funding. All contributions will be distributed to nonprofit organizations swiftly as needs arise.

Flagstaff grant application workshops cancelled

As a convener of the community, the health and safety of our stakeholders is of utmost importance. The Arizona Community Foundation of Flagstaff 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 cancelling the ACF of Flagstaff grant application workshops to minimize non-essential personal contact. We are doing this as a proactive measure to ensure we remain healthy and responsive to your needs.

Please check back for more information on how to apply for the ACF of Flagstaff 2020 Grant Cycle. Due to the current public health risk, your organization will not be expected to participate in a workshop in order to be eligible.

Thank you for your patience as we implement safety precautions to preserve the health and well-being of our community. If you have questions, please contact Gwen Groth at or 928.526.1956.
