Ways to Give

The Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma unites the collective generosity and will of our community to make our area stronger. There are many different ways to give and we’d like to help you determine the way that works best for you.

You can choose to:

  • Give to the ACF of Yuma Community Fund to support of broad community needs as determined by our local Board of Advisors.
  •  Give to an existing field of interest fund that supports a specific local cause.
  • Start your own advised fund supporting your philanthropic goals. To create your named fund at the Yuma Community Foundation, email Veronica Shorr.

When our daughter died, we wanted to create a scholarship in her memory that would live on forever. We quickly discovered how difficult a process that could be. Who would qualify?  How would they qualify? Who would administer the scholarship not only this year and next, but far into the future? How would the funds be handled to meet all IRS requirements? What at times seemed overwhelming almost discouraged us from the process. After conferring with numerous people we finally met and sat down with the staff of the Arizona Community Foundation of Yuma to discuss scholarship program options that made the entire process incredibly simple. We would highly recommend the Community Foundation to everyone. They have the organization, staff and expertise to handle everything.
