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:

Presentations will be held throughout May and June 2019.

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 a rolling basis, reviewed monthly by an internal committee, and awarded based on anticipated impact on priority areas and available budget.

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 a rolling basis, reviewed monthly by an internal committee, and awarded based on anticipated impact on priority areas and available budget.

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

Capital Grant

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.

Examples of projects funded in the past:

  • Skate Park - City of Willcox
  • Splash Pad - Town of Parker
  • Community Garden - Our Neighbors Farm and Pantry - Safford, AZ
  • A/C Unit - Boys and Girls Clubs of Tucson
