Southern Arizona Network

About the Network

Established in 2018, Arizona Grantmakers' Southern Arizona Network is the regional affinity group for philanthropic leaders and professionals. Representing about a fourth of Arizona Grantmakers membership, SAN is designed to maximize community impact through information sharing and strategically aligned investments.


The network is open to staff, board members, trustees, and donor-advised fundholders of Arizona Grantmakers members that fund in southern Arizona.

SAN Member Benefits

In addition to Arizona Grantmakers' full member benefits, SAN members enjoy:

  • Quarterly programs and meetings with industry experts on needs and opportunities relevant to members' interests and focus areas
  • Monthly virtual meetings to coordinate local member responses to COVID-19
  • Education Affinity Group meetings focused on issues ranging from early childhood to college in southern Arizona

Our Local Presence

Arizona Grantmakers has an established partnership to serve local grantmakers and strengthen statewide relationships. Working with the Regional Partnering Center—a 501(c)(3) of Pima Association of Governments—Arizona Grantmakers is well positioned to serve and support its members in Southern Arizona.
