Foundation offers free grant application workshops
Special to the Review

Representatives of local nonprofit organizations, public schools, municipalities and Tribal entities are invited to participate in an upcoming Yavapai County Community Foundation workshop to help better prepare applications for available grants.

Two workshops are scheduled. The first is from 10 a.m. to noon, Thursday, Jan. 24, at the Boys and Girls Club of Central Arizona Community Room, 335 E. Aubrey Street in Prescott. The second is from 10 a.m. to noon at the Verde Valley Medical Center Conference Rooms B and C, 269 S. Candy Lane, in Cottonwood. People can attend in person or by webinar.

The grant workshops will focus on YCCF's 2013 competitive grant distribution, including application instructions. YCCF staff will review the online application system as well as eligibility requirements and guidelines. Staff and YCCF Advisory Board members also will be on hand to answer questions following the workshops. Prospective applicants are encouraged to attend one of the workshops to learn about significant changes in this year's application and distribution process.

The workshops are free and open to the public, but space is limited. To register, contact Tracey McConnell, YCCF grants and operations coordinator, at or (928) 499-9795 and indicate which workshop you plan to attend and whether you will be there in person or by webinar.

Last year, YCCF awarded nearly $140,000 to 40 Yavapai County community organizations through this competitive grant process. Grant money may be awarded to youth programs, social services, healthcare, eye care, music and art, the environment, law enforcement canines, as well as the unrestricted community fund.

YCCF awards grants from a variety of its endowed charitable funds every year, some of which were established and continue to be supported by local donors for the common good and others for special purposes. YCCF accepts funding requests from qualified nonprofit organizations, public schools, municipalities and Tribal entities in amounts ranging from $500 to $20,000. The grant application will be available online beginning Thursday, Feb. 14, 2013 at Applications must be submitted by 4 p.m. on Thursday, March 14, 2013.

Grant applicants must have an updated online profile at and be a designated 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization, or qualify as a public school, municipality or Tribe. Organizations that have received YCCF grant funding in 2011 or earlier must confirm that their final reports have been received by YCCF and the Arizona Community Foundation in order to be eligible for future funding. Grant applicants must provide services within Yavapai County geographic boundaries. Sedona agencies that submit proposals for funding to YCCF must use the funding to benefit residents of Yavapai County outside of Sedona city limits (as defined by the Sedona Fire District).

The Yavapai County Community Foundation, an affiliate of the Arizona Community Foundation, is a 19-year-old permanent philanthropic endowment for the enduring benefit of the community. Its mission is to lead, serve and collaborate to mobilize enduring philanthropy for a better Yavapai County.

YCCF secures, manages and allocates donors' gifts for charitable purposes in the County while working to improve the quality of life for local residents. Over the past decade, YCCF in partnership with ACF has awarded $5.3 million to Yavapai County nonprofit organizations, schools and municipalities. People don't give money to the Yavapai County Community Foundation, they give to their community through the Foundation. For information, visit
