Thank you to the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona for renewing our participation in the Catchafire Program! Catchafire’s professional volunteers have assisted us with several critical projects this past year, including the creation and revision of our Vision, Mission and Values. We’re currently working with a Catchafire expert to create a brand new website to better serve our constituents and community. CFSAZ, we couldn’t have accomplished so much without you!
And a huge thank you to Community Foundation for Southern Arizona for their additional support, and to all our other recent funders! Please read about their generosity here. And thanks to Arizona Public Media for this great story!
