WHO WE ARE

Arizona Together for Impact

Many nonprofits are grappling with inconsistent funds and increased demand for services. The philanthropic sector sees these challenges and has responded in a new way, creating Arizona Together for Impact, which helps nonprofits pursue their missions through sustained collaborations with other organizations. Initiated as a part of Arizona Grantmakers Forum, Arizona Together for Impact is a funder collaborative — a collection of funders aligned in support of a specific initiative. Now more than ever, Arizona’s nonprofits and funders need to consider how to maximize impact and unite around a common purpose. One opportunity is through long-term, formal collaborations.

Arizona Together for Impact is part of the national Sustained Collaboration Network. For the organizations we work with, that means access to an incredibly wide-ranging network of expertise, experience, and funding. Learn more about us ->

WHY WE DO IT

Arizona Together for Impact Helps
Nonprofits Maximize Their Impact

Sustained collaboration is a powerful tool that can make organizations stronger, but we know there’s no one-size-fits-all solution. We believe in helping nonprofits realize their missions —
in a way that is thoughtful, community-centered, and mission-focused. Collaboration can help organizations achieve greater impact in three main ways:

Financial

Sustained collaboration can produce economies of scale, stabilization of financial positions or advancement of fundraising opportunities.

Programmatic

Expansion of programs geographically or with greater market penetration can help increase program impact in the community.

Capacity

Finding and deploying resources can be more cost effective when pursued with an adjacent organization.
