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 more than $160,000 to non-profits 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 OneAZ Credit Union CFO Kim Reedy.
Previous recipients include Over the Rainbow Butterfly Garden, which creates scholarships to absorb occupational and speech therapy costs. Northern Arizona University’s Go Baby Go, which customizes battery-operated cars for children with mobile disabilities, also received a grant.
OneAZ Community Impact Grants are awarded to 501(c)3 non-profit organizations dedicated to improving the quality of life for those who live and work in Arizona. Non-profits are encouraged to submit an application, including a summary of how the grant will help the organization, by Aug. 25. Grant requests may range from $1,000 to $3,000, and prior grant recipients are eligible to apply for a 2019 Community Impact Grant.
