How to Apply for a Grant

It’s easy to apply for a grant from the OneAZ Community Foundation. And while there are many worthwhile programs in need of funding, we have established criteria to assist in funding decisions.

  • The program or initiative must be consistent with the mission of the OneAZ Community Foundation.
  • Grants are awarded to programs that support one of our three pillars: Economic Empowerment & Entrepreneurship, Community Vitality, and Developing Future Leaders in our communities.
  • Grant requests must feature specific goals with measurable results. Requests should also show the ability to meet the program’s needs.
  • Tax exempt status under Section 501(c)3 of the Internal Revenue Code and have been in existence for at least two years
  • In compliance with the anti-discrimination laws at the local, state and federal levels
  • Located within the state of Arizona

OneAZ Community Impact Grants

  • Available on an annual basis to nonprofits that align with our areas of support.

  • Grant awards announced on or around July 1, 2024.
  • The 2024 Community Impact Grant cycle runs from April 15 - May 24, 2024
  • Next Community Impact Grant applications will open early Spring 2024.

Please keep in mind that our foundation does not fund endowment campaigns, individuals or individual projects, religious organizations, political causes or candidates, or reduction or liquidation of debt.

All general applications will be subject to approval from the OneAZ Community Foundation Board of Directors. The duration of the review process may vary and is determined by the Board’s schedule. It is the Board’s intent to meet every other month to review grant requests. Please take this into account if your request has a deadline and submit it in advance to allow for ample time.
