The Greater Green Valley Community Foundation changes and enriches lives through guidance, education, and financial support for charitable organizations serving our communities.
We strive to improve the quality of life for present and future generations in our area.
Green Valley is located in South Pima County along the I-19 corridor south of Tucson. The area is home to families, retirees, ranches and many growing businesses. This diversity allows the Greater Green Valley Community Foundation to focus on older adults, healthcare, children, housing, education, the environment, animals and the arts. Grantmaking reflects the uniqueness of the Foundation which serves the towns of Green Valley, Sahuarita, Amado, Arivaca, Tubac, Tumacacori and the surrounding area.
In 1998, the Greater Green Valley Community Foundation merged with the Green Valley Community Fund which had been operating since 1970 serving local residents and organizations. Our goal is to build community now and for many years to come by bringing people and organizations together around local issues and opportunities. The GGVCF has an unrestricted endowment fund. Our local board and staff have an in-depth understanding of the concerns and resources that shape our community, and we are dedicated to continue building this permanent endowment or savings account to serve the Green Valley areas long-term needs through local grant-making. We also provide technical assistance and training to encourage these local community organizations to grow and extend their reach.
