As major sports leagues, concerts and community events cancel due to fear of spreading COVID-19, previously known as Coronavirus, the Community Foundation for Southern Arizona has established an emergency fund to assist nonprofits that cancelled events. The foundation has seeded then fund with $10,000.

Area nonprofits use fundraising events to provide essential financial support for their respective missions, and the loss of such events can prove a great detriment.

"CFSA is committed to supporting our nonprofit partners during this time of uncertainty,” said foundation president and CEO Clint Mable, in a statement. “Our goal is to always be responsive to the needs of the community and help ensure that the mission-critical services provided to our community by our nonprofit partners continue without interruption."

To contribute, visit cfsaz.org or call 770-0800.
