How to Apply

Arizona Together for Impact is incredibly proud of the organizations we’ve worked with so far and the many ways they’ve maximized their impact through collaboration. In our five years as a collaborative fund, we’ve raised nearly $2 million to create and facilitate collaborative opportunities, and we’re just getting started.

If you’re ready to explore growing the impact of a nonprofit through sustained collaboration, or want to support nonprofits as a partner in our initiative, please take these steps:

1. Start a Conversation

Your organization holds an internal conversation about potential long-term partnerships. You use the tools in our webinars to identify the organization(s) with which you’re interested in collaborating.

2. Reach Out

Using resources provided by Arizona Together for Impact, you can initiate a conversation with these organizations. You may seek financial support from the Impact Fund to assist with the costs associated with these “seed” conversations.

3. Contact Us

If all organizations agree to formally explore the possibility of a permanent collaboration, you contact Arizona Together for Impact. We can assist by helping you engage an experienced consultant or facilitator, and by providing funding for a portion of the exploration costs.

4. Apply for Funding

If organizations agree to a permanent collaboration (program integration, office consolidation or merger), you may request financial support from the Impact Fund for a portion of the costs of implementation.

5. The End Result

When nonprofits join together to maximize the impact of their work, they have the potential to realize improved organizational and financial capabilities, provide expanded or deeper services to their clients, and more effectively serve the greater community.
