Arizona Philanthropic Organizations
St. Luke's Health Initiatives Community Grants
The purpose of the SLHI Community Grants program is to provide funding that strengthens the capacity of organizations and communities to improve access to care and better health for Arizona's most vulnerable populations. Categories of grants include:
SLHI's small grants program provides one-time grants of up to $10,000 to provide organizations with a "bridge" to greater effectiveness. These are targeted to smaller, emerging organizations or new programs within an organization that have infrastructure or developmental needs.
SLHI's regular grants program provides grants in the $10,000 -- $100,000 range over one to two years to help organizations strengthen their capacity to improve the health of vulnerable populations and communities. SLHI is primarily interested in:
- promoting community partnerships and volunteer efforts.
- convening people to develop better ways to address community health issues.
- increasing public awareness and understanding of critical community health needs.
- finding ways to sustain strong advocacy and broad-based community support and involvement.
Arizona Community Foundation
The Arizona Community Foundation has traditionally focused its grant-making efforts on both statewide and community concerns ranging from the arts, culture and humanities to public education, and from the environment to community and economic development. Priorities are largely focused on ideas and interventions that most directly contribute to the overall health, education and well-being of Arizona's children, youth, and families.
The Flinn Foundation
The Flinn Foundation fulfills its mission to improve the quality of life primarily by serving as a resource for health and health care in Arizona. The Foundation no longer awards new grants in the community health services field, but continues to honor existing grant commitments. The foundation's currently funded projects and interests are described in its web site.
Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust
