PHOENIX – The Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. (AZWP), an all-volunteer philanthropic 501 c(3) non-profit, which awards grants to grass roots charities that assist under-served women and children at risk in Arizona, announces the availability of its 2020 grant application.
The AZWP applicants must be 501 c(3) non-profits with an operating budget of under $450,000; be based in Arizona; be in good financial standing; be non-sectarian; non-partisan; non-school affiliated; and reflect our mission. The AWPn2020 grant application, which is at www.azwp.org, must be postmarked by March 31. Grant awards will be distributed mid-year.
“We are proud to note that the Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. has awarded over $450,000 in grants since 2003 to more than 70 grass roots non-profits, many of which are multiple year recipients,” said Paula Cullison, AZWP President and Founder. “The Arizona Women’s Partnership plans to award over $30,000 in grants this cycle,” she added.
Grant recipients address critical issues, such as domestic violence, child abuse, adult literacy, youth at risk, ESL, foster children, refugees, homelessness, health and hunger. Funds are generated through donations and fundraisers.
“We gratefully acknowledge generous donations, totally over $200,000, from the Violet M. Johnson Family Foundation. Given since 2008 and in honor of their late maternal grandmother, this philanthropy continues to help a tens of thousands of women and children in need here in Arizona,” Cullison said.
The AZWP “Faces of Hope” photography exhibit is available at no charge. It showcases the faces of the under-served woman and children who have been assisted through grants that are awarded annually to qualified grass roots charities by the AZWP. The exhibit has been viewed by thousands and seeks to inspire volunteerism and philanthropy. The exhibit is at the Arizona State University West Campus Fletcher Library, 4701 West Thunderbird Road Phoenix, Arizona, 3rd floor, south end of the quad. Please use visitor parking lots. ($2/hour).
