Project Rising Hope Receives Grant from the OneAZ Community Foundation

OneAZ Community Foundation has awarded grants to 50 Arizona nonprofit organizations

PHOENIX, AZ [July 22, 2022]- The OneAZ Community Foundation has awarded Project Rising Hope a $5,000 Community Impact Grant for their work improving the lives of their community.

“We are overjoyed and genuinely grateful to the OneAZ Community Foundation for this generous grant,” said Helen Bowden, PRH Secretary. “These funds will help provide much-needed food and food storage to further our mission of alleviating hunger in the Verde Valley.”

In 2022, the OneAZ Community Foundation will award $250,000 (more than double the amount from last year) to fifty organizations through the Community Impact Grant program. Grants are awarded to organizations that support at least one of the Foundation’s five pillars: Children’s Health, Food Banks, Financial Education, Veterans’ Interests, and Local Youth Programs.

Since 2016, the OneAZ Community Foundation has given nearly $750,000 in grants to support Arizona nonprofit organizations.

“We are proud to give back to the nonprofits in the communities we serve at our highest level ever. As OneAZ grows, so does our giving. Our members help raise the funds given from the Foundation through their OneAZ debit card swipes and that money is invested in their communities by supporting organizations that improve the lives of Arizona families and neighborhoods,” said Foundation Chairperson Sam Wheeler.
