Active Local Involvement

Transforming the Health of the Community, one person at a time.

To help us fulfill our mission of improving the health of the community one person at a time, Arizona Complete Health (AzCH) has developed a Community Reinvestment Program. This program provides philanthropic support for health and wellness initiatives and to community-based organizations that are working to improve the health of our local communities.

Arizona Complete Health aligns our Corporate Giving investments with:

  • Internally established priorities based on areas of concern among AzCH members
  • County, and local community health improvement plans

For more details about specific areas of alignment, please reference the AzCH Philanthropic Funding Priorities Guide which can be found on The Common Grant Website

Healthier individuals build healthy families and thriving communities.

Some examples of AzCH health priorities include:

  • Expanding wellness and prevention efforts, such as cancer screenings or flu shots
  • Empowering individuals to manage chronic disease, such as diabetes, asthma or another chronic conditions
  • Promoting substance abuse prevention and treatment to help educate, reduce stigma and encourage greater access to treatment
  • Raising awareness about mental health, support and services to help educate the community, reduce stigma, promote greater access to services and support recovery and resiliency
  • Building pathways that maximize independence and make accessing services easier for persons with disabilities and their families, no matter the disability
  • Addressing social determinants of health, those factors in our lives that impact our ability to be healthy and stay healthy, such as housing, employment, nutrition, safety

To be eligible to apply for our Community Reinvestment Program, applicants must be a 501c3, 501c19, tribal nation, or an Arizona governmental entity (city, county or state, including traditional public schools), or have a qualifying fiscal agent.

Programmatic Support

The primary focus of our philanthropic support is to directly fund programs that have clear goals aligned to Arizona Complete Health’s funding priorities. Applications/proposals submitted through the portal are accepted on the below timeline, reviewed monthly* by an internal committee, and awarded based on anticipated impact on priority areas and available budget.

Applications open: January 1st
Applications close: August 31st
Reporting from previous year due June 1

*review timeline subject to change

Event Sponsorships

It is AzCH’s strong preference to directly fund programming with clear outcomes aligned to our funding priorities rather than sponsor events. However, we also understand some organizations that provide vital services in the communities we serve don’t have fundraising mechanisms other than events. Event sponsorships will be considered when there isn’t an option to directly fund an outcomes-based program, especially in communities with fragile social service infrastructure. Additionally, impactful educational events and workforce development opportunities such as professional conferences or community trainings will be considered for sponsorship. Organizations and causes supported by event sponsorships must align with the AzCH funding priorities. 

Applications/proposals submitted through the portal are accepted on the below timeline, reviewed monthly* by an internal committee, and awarded based on anticipated impact on priority areas and available budget.

Open November 1st of previous calendar year (i.e. applications for 2020 can be applied for beginning November 1, 2019
Close October 31st of current calendar year (i.e. applications for 2020 will not be accepted after October 31, 2020)
Reporting due 12/31 of the same year (i.e. reporting for events occurring in 2020 must be received by December 31st, 2020)

*review timeline subject to chang

Event sponsorship applications/proposals are submitted through the AzCH Common Grant Application Portal. More information is also available in the portal.

Capital Grant

Depending on budget availability, AzCH offers an annual competitive grant to provide funding for capital projects/campaigns, infrastructure needs, and other hard costs for programs aligned with the AzCH funding priorities. Applications will be accepted for, but not limited to, building/purchasing new facilities, improving/renovating/repairing existing facilities, obtaining vehicles, purchasing training materials, and buying supplies. Applications for partial funding for an overall project will be considered unless AzCH funding will complete the project. Applications are reviewed and scored by an internal team of AzCH employee volunteers.

Please note that AzCH will not offer a capital grant in 2020.

COVID-19 Update: In light on the COVID-19 pandemic, AzCH will continue to accept applications for philanthropic support through the Common Grant but will suspend reviewing and approving proposals until the end of May 2020. During this time, we will be paying close attention to the conditions on the ground and re-prioritizing where our giving can make the greatest impact during and in the aftermath of this emergency. If you have an urgent need in the meantime, please contact the AzCH Community Affairs lead in your area listed below.

Arizona Complete Health considers requests for (1) programmatic support, (2) event sponsorships, and (3) annual grant support for capital projects. Applications/proposals are submitted through the Common Grant Application Portal. Within the portal, you will find separate applications for all three types of support. Please fill out the application that best matches the kind of support your organization is seeking.

Funding decisions are sent via email to the contact provided in the application. If approved, Arizona Complete Health will request an invoice for the approved amount. Once processed, organizations will receive funding via check from Centene Management Corporation within 45-60 days.

Applicants may request to meet with members of the AzCH Community Affairs Team to further explain the impact of your program, better understand our funding priorities, and discuss a potential application/proposal. A meeting is not required to submit an application/proposal, but is encouraged.
