In order to fulfill our mission to advance community health care issues, a Trustee Award in the amount of $1,000 will be awarded each month beginning in January, 2013 to unique and meaningful projects that function to improve public health in the state of Arizona.
Proposals must be submitted and received at the Foundation office no later than 5:00 p.m. on the first Monday of the month before funding is requested. For example, if you would like to receive funding in March, your application must be received no later than the first Monday in February. The decision on the program's proposal will be announced on the first of the requested month. Funds will be immediately available to the selected program.
Projects that are unique and demonstrate potential to make a meaningful impact are preferred. Projects that require quick granting action in order to address a community problem or situation are also preferred.
Applicants should carefully consider the following exclusions that result from budgetary considerations, Foundation policy or federal laws. The Foundation does not consider requests from:
1. Individual applicants
2. Political lobbyists, organizations or campaigns
3. Religious activities or organizations
4. Private foundations or private operating foundations
5. Professional associations
6. Specialized health organizations, hospitals or medical centers for operating funds
7. Tax supported government programs or functions
8. Fraternal, veterans, or military organizations

10. Telephone and/or mail solicitors
Moreover, the Foundation neither supports nor engages in any political activity. It does not attempt to influence legislation or political campaigns for public office, nor does it support organizations engaging in these activities.
In addition, the Foundation does not provide "annual" grants or continuing support. Individual grant proposals from organizations receiving current or previous Foundation support will be judged as new requests and evaluated in relation to other proposals before the Foundation.
Qualified organizations applying for a grant are encouraged to submit a proposal online.
The Foundation reserves the right to request such additional information as it deems necessary.
All requests are reviewed by staff to determine whether or not they meet the Foundation's objectives and project guidelines. Applications having significant merit and relevance to the Foundation's objectives and priorities are later presented to the Foundation's Grant Committee and Board of Trustees for consideration.
Organizations receiving an award are expected to comply with the conditions specified in the application procedures. The Foundation reserves the right to report publicly on the achievements of its grant recipients.
Recipients will be notified on the first of the month of which they requested funding.
