AZ Women’s Partnership, Inc. announces its 2019 grant application

The Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. — a volunteer philanthropic 501 c(3) non-profit, which awards grants to grass roots charities that assist under-served women and children at risk here in Arizona — announced the availability of its 2019 grant application.

 “We are proud to note that the Arizona Women’s Partnership, inc. has awarded over $415,000 in grants since 2003 to more than 55 grass roots non-profits, many of which are multiple year recipients,” Paula Cullison, AZWP president and founder, said in a prepared statement.

“The Arizona Women’s Partnership plans to award another $30,000 in grants this cycle”, she added.

Grant recipients address issues such as domestic violence, child abuse, adult literacy, youth at risk, ESL, foster children, refugees, homelessness, health and hunger.  Funds are generated through donations and fundraisers.

Therefore, the organization acknowledges another donation of $25,000 from the Violet M. Johnson Family Foundation, given in honor of their late maternal grandmother whose philanthropy continues to help women and children in need, according to a press release.

This year, the organization also expressed gratitude to Dr Sheela Kalangi and Jeff Gibbs, who requested donations to the Arizona Women’s Partnership in lieu of wedding gifts.

This is an example, Ms. Cullison said, of Sheela and Jeff’s generous nature, as these donations will help many.

The Arizona Women’s Partnership applicants must be 501 c(3) non-profits with an operating budget of under $450,000; be in good financial standing; be non-sectarian; non-partisan; non-school affiliated; and reflect the group’s mission.

The Arizona Women’s Partnership 2019 grant application must be postmarked by March 31. Grant awards will be distributed mid-year.
