Our community is strengthened by the generosity and selflessness of our residents, businesses, and nonprofit organizations. For 20 years, the Arizona Community Foundation of Sedona has recognized outstanding community service with the Spirit Awards.

Members of the public are invited to nominate individuals, businesses, and nonprofits who have made exceptional contributions to the Sedona and/or Verde Valley community in the past 12 to 24 months.

Nominations are now open for this year’s Spirit Awards and must be submitted by January 31. Award categories include:

Individuals may submit multiple nominations for each category. Awards will be presented at a Spirit Awards Celebration in the late spring of 2023. The date of the event is to be announced. The winner of each category will receive $1,000 to grant to the nonprofit organization of their choice.

Last year’s Spirit Awards went to Christ Lutheran Church, Heather Hermen, Page Springs Cellars, Luke Sefton, Verde Valley Wheel Fun, and Bill and Susan Cammock.
