Other Ways to Give
The Arizona Community Foundation houses many funds that provide donors an opportunity to contribute to the community including funds that were established to honor the memory of a loved one who passed away, scholarship funds that support postsecondary education opportunities, and place-based giving options that extend beyond our regional offices.
Some ACF donors choose to create a fund to memorialize a loved one, inviting friends and family to contribute to the fund in lieu of sympathy gifts. Explore some recently established memorial funds below.
Mildred M Isaacs Memorial Fund
Because of Millie’s commitment to the arts, a fund has been created in her memory. Please consider giving to the Mildred M Isaacs Memorial Fund in lieu of flowers.
Morrison Elliott Warren Memorial Fund
The Morrison Elliott Warren Memorial Fund has been established to accept donations to issue scholarships to deserving high school students from Arizona who attend Stanford University.
Thomas K. Hall Memorial Fund
The Thomas K. Hall Memorial Fund supports the arts. In his spare time Tom used his artistic talent to make eccentric pieces of art with metal. In his own words, “All artists start out struggling and starving, maybe I can help them someday.”
Awarding scholarships to students is among the most rewarding kinds of philanthropy. You can create your own fund named after you or your family, or support an existing scholarship fund with your gift.
Bishop Barnwell MLK Scholarship
The Bishop Henry L. Barnwell Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Scholarship Fund was established to realize the dream of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the dream of the late Bishop Henry L. Barnwell, Founder/Chair of the Arizona MLK Celebration Scholarship Committee. That dream is equal access to higher education through scholarships.
