OneAZ Credit Union and OneAZ Community Foundation have pledged to award $60,000 in Community Impact Grants as part of their commitment to improving Arizona communities.

OneAZ Credit Union and OneAZ Community Foundation are committed to supporting the local economy through several initiatives, including the flagship Community Impact Grants program. Since launching the program in 2016, OneAZ has given over $160,000 to nonprofits statewide that make a difference in the communities they serve.

“Our Community Impact Grants program has supported everything from first responders and food banks to butterfly gardens and arts programs. We’re beyond impressed at the powerful difference being made by organizations of every size and look forward to this year’s applicants,” said Kim Reedy, CFO for OneAZ Credit Union.

Previous recipients include Free Arts for Abused Children. The organization uses the arts to promote healing in children who have suffered from homelessness and abuse. Hart Pantry, which provides weekend food packs to at-risk and homeless high schoolers, also received a grant to fund their efforts.

OneAZ Community Impact Grants are awarded to organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life for those who live and work in Arizona. Nonprofits are encouraged to submit an application, including a summary of how the grant will help the organization, by August 25, 2019. 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations can submit applications now through Aug. 25, 2019. Grant requests may range from $1,000 to $3,000, and prior grant recipients are eligible to apply for a 2019 Community Impact Grant.
