The Arizona Community Foundation of Yavapai County and Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona have partnered with Yavapai College to present their annual Cash for College Scholarship Awareness Nights. Two events will provide opportunities for local students, their families, and educators to learn more about post-secondary scholarships, vocational trainings, and certificates available for both traditional and non-traditional college students.
Through the Arizona Community Foundation’s online scholarship system, students are matched with more than 100 scholarships for which they qualify. Application requirements for scholarships that were established specifically for area students will be explained during the events. The Arizona Community Foundation is the largest private provider of scholarships in the state.
Staff from ACF of Yavapai County and ACF of Sedona as well as scholarship providers will be available to answer questions and share information. Two events will take place, one in Prescott and one in Clarkdale. These events are free and open to the public, and there is no need to register.

The Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona celebrated the 18th Annual Spirit of Sedona honorees and 2018 grant recipients on Thursday, September 20. Community members in attendance learned about the projects funded through the annual competitive grants process and the contributions of this year’s honorees.
Pat Jansen and John Kincaid, Co-Chairs of ACF of Sedona’s Board of Advisors, shared, “This year’s event was truly joyous. Over 200 people gathered to celebrate not only the honorees, but also the many nonprofit grantees who work so tirelessly every day to make Sedona and the Verde Valley a beautiful and caring place to live. The energy, excitement and passion which radiated throughout the entire event was just a small reminder of the tremendous people we have in this community who strive to make a difference.”
With the support of its Board of Advisors and volunteer grant review panelists, ACF of Sedona awarded more than $130,200 in grants this year to 41 nonprofit organizations serving Sedona and the Verde Valley in the areas of animal welfare, arts & culture, education, environment & sustainability, community health, tolerance & diversity, social services, children, senior citizens and individuals with disabilities.
The Spirit of Sedona was made possible through the generosity of local sponsors including presenting sponsor BMO Harris Bank.

In-kind sponsors included Enchantment Resort; Larry Kane Photography; Sedona Media Services; and Red Rock Magic Trolley.
