Thanks to the success of the 2022 Flutter at the Fountain fundraiser, the Fountain Hills Community Foundation will be awarding $60,000 to area non-profit organizations in 2023. Applications are now available online at www.fountainhillsgives.com and are due by January 31, 2023.
Qualified applicants are 501 (c)(3) organizations which seek funding for educational, cultural, and humanitarian programs or services. The maximum award amount is $5,000. Grants recipients will be announced in March, 2023.
Applicants must describe how the funding will make a difference to their organization and the Fountain Hills community and agree to spend the grant in the 2023 calendar year. Recipients will be asked to provide a follow-up report on how the grant was spent as well as the resulting accomplishments achieved because of the funding.
In 2022, the FHCF awarded nearly $50,000 to 26 area nonprofits such as the Fountain Hills Youth Theater. The theater used their grant to fund a production of NEWSIES (pictured), a musical which was inspired by the real-life 1899 newsboys strike in New York City.
The Fountain Hills Community Foundation (FHCF) is a 501 (c)(3) organization which invests in non-profit organizations whose work improves the life of youth, seniors, families and community in the Fountain Hills’ community and surrounding areas. Since 2020, $133,000 has been donated to local non-profit groups by the FHCF. Twenty-six organizations received nearly $50,000 during the 2022 Giving Season alone.
