The Planned Giving 200 series facilitated by the ACF Center for Planned Giving helps development staff of nonprofit organizations enhance their understanding of endowment building and engaging donors in legacy giving. To ensure nonprofit organizations serving Yuma and Western Arizona can participate without concerns for travel constraints, ACF of Yuma will host viewings for organizations to attend via webinar at its local office.
Lunch will be provided, and participants will learn about complex gifts like real estate and life insurance, using data and research to inform your planned giving strategy and how to approach the sensitive conversation of legacy giving with potential donors.

MIGUEL SALCEDOWe are pleased to announce that Miguel Salcedo has joined the team of the Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma to serve as our Regional Philanthropic Coordinator. In this role, Miguel manages the annual competitive grants process and scholarship awards, supports nonprofit organizations in their endowment building efforts, and also provides kind, responsive service to our new and existing donors.
Miguel previously worked with the Arizona Western College Foundation and his experience with a local foundation will certainly be an asset as we work to mobilize enduring philanthropy for a better Arizona.
The annual competitive grants process for the Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma and the San Luis Community Fund will provide an opportunity of funding to nonprofit organizations serving the area's residents. To aid nonprofit organizations in preparing an effective application, ACF of Yuma host an informational grants application workshop in mid-July at no cost to participants.
Funds are available to support projects and programs that advance arts and culture, promote community health and animal welfare, serve local veterans, combat hunger and improve the quality of life in rural and borderlands communities. The online application will open Friday, July 29 and close three weeks later on Friday, August 19 at 5:00 p.m. Complete applications must be submitted no later than this time to be considered.
