Research on Arizona Philanthropy

Arizona Grantmakers Forum has access to Candid’s online directory of foundations and can provide members with information on national and local foundations funding in specific interest areas throughout Arizona. This information can be especially helpful when looking for partners to provide advice, matching dollars, etc.

Directors & Officers Liability Insurance

With the increased governmental scrutiny on the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, many experts strongly recommend that foundations carry Directors & Officers Insurance to protect both trustees and the foundation. Arizona Grantmakers offers a discounted Directors’ and Officer’s Liability Insurance coverage program to our members through a partnership with the Council on Foundations.
