Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $25,000 to Arizona nonprofit and faith-based organizations, schools, and tribal agencies to provide quality summer youth programming. Funding is intended to support existing programs that provide recreational and creative outlets for children and youth in Maricopa County. Program activities can be varied, centering on personal youth development, arts and culture, recreation and physical activity, the environment or nature, disability, or academic and educational development.

Organizations with a focus on artistic and academic programs are encouraged to apply with innovative ways to decrease sedentary activities and increase knowledge of healthy lifestyles. Recognizing that youth-serving organizations shape the environment of our youth, the SYPF will encourage all applicants to play a role in addressing the trend of childhood obesity through the implementation of proper nutrition practices and opportunities to be physically active. 

The SYPF encourages collaborative efforts among organizations with similar goals, increase service capacities and expand outreach to touch the lives of more youth of Maricopa County.

- Applicant organizations must reside in Arizona and have documentation from the Internal Revenue Service of its charitable status (e.g. IRS Code Sections 501(c)3 and 170(b)(1)(A). Organizations may not submit proposals under the 501(c)3 umbrella of another agency.
