OneAZ Credit Union and OneAZ Community Foundation have pledged to award $200,000 in emergency COVID-19 Community Impact Grants as part of its commitment to help Arizona communities.

The 501(c)3 nonprofit organizations impacted by COVID-19 may submit applications online, according to a press release.

OneAZ Credit Union and OneAZ Community Foundation, the release said are committed to supporting the local economy through several initiatives.

During the last four years, OneAZ has given more than $397,000 to nonprofits statewide that make a difference in the quality of life for those who live and work in Arizona.

“We recognize that COVID-19 is impacting us all in unprecedented ways, and we’re eager to help nonprofit organizations sustain their operations during these uncertain times,” said Kim Reedy, CEO for OneAZ Credit Union, in a prepared statement.

The goal is to provide emergency funding for nonprofit organizations that serve one or more of OneAZ’s five key community focus areas, including:

  1. children’s health,
  2. food banks,
  3. financial literacy,
  4. military, veterans’ and first responders’ interests, and
  5. local youth programs.

Applications by nonprofits with operations outside these five pillars will also be considered, the release noted.

Nonprofits are encouraged to apply online, include a summary of how COVID-19 has impacted its operations and how the emergency grant funds will be used.

Grants will be awarded in $2,000 increments with applications reviewed on a weekly basis until all $200,000 is awarded or May 1, whichever comes first.

Prior grant recipients are eligible to apply for an emergency COVID-19 Community Impact Grant, added the release.

Community Impact Grant inquiries are only accepted by email to:
OneAZFoundation@OneAZcu.com.
