Grant Description
Grants of up to $10,000 to Arizona nonprofit organizations for charitable programs that improve the local quality of life in eligible areas. Funding is intended for programs and activities within the focus areas of health, education, leadership, social well-being, economic participation, and natural resource resilience. Eligible programs benefit communities in Southern Arizona in the Patagonia Mountains in Santa Cruz County. The project is approximately six miles south of the town of Patagonia, 50 miles southeast of Tucson, and 15 miles northeast of Nogales, Arizona.

Priority will be given to organizations that:

  • Are working collaboratively with other agencies in the planning and implementation of the project.
  • Have involved staff, volunteers, and current/potential participants in the planning and implementation of the proposed program.
  • Enable individuals to identify, contribute and enhance their skills, abilities, capacities and assets, focusing on strengths rather than problems or deficiencies.
  • Can clearly articulate the outcomes the program/participants will achieve and be able to collect the data to demonstrate measurable progress toward the accomplishment of those outcomes.
  • Can provide a clear description of plans to sustain the organization and/or program beyond the grant period.

In the case of nationally sponsored organizations, no portion of the grant can be used to support the national, state, or regional entity.
