Phoenix AZ (October 7, 2020) – The Arizona Community Foundation has released its COVID-19 Community Impact Report, which details the organization’s work in addressing the pandemic since mid-March. Visit azfoundation.org/Community2020 to view the full report.
In this digital report, ACF highlights the stories of its partners, community members, businesses, and donors who helped distribute $8.9 million to Arizona nonprofits experiencing strain on resources due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“This pandemic affected all communities across our state and we, collectively, responded quickly and continue to provide ongoing support for one another through this time of crisis,” said Steve Seleznow, ACF President & CEO. “People who face inequality have been hit disproportionately hard and the nonprofit organizations that provide support are stretching to find the finances and volunteers to provide the necessary services. It’s times like these when community foundations like ours are positioned to act swiftly.”
