Give Where You Live: Make an Arizona Gives Day Gift to the Local First AZ Foundation


At Local First Arizona, we're working every day to ensure we have a vibrant and sustainable local economy. Through the work of the Local First Arizona Foundation, we are touching the lives of thousands of Arizonans and helping them to create economic opportunity in their own communities.  

Arizona Gives Day, a powerful 24-hour online giving experience that unites Arizonans around causes they believe in, is this Tuesday, April 4. By making a tax-deductible gift to the Local First Arizona Foundation for Arizona Gives Day, you can help create an Arizona we're all proud to call home.


Your donation will make an impact in communities across the state:

Support Arizona's Local Foods Economy & Increasing Access to Healthy Local Foods

"We are based in 'extreme rural' Arizona, so not only does Local First Arizona Foundation's Farmer+Chef Connection give us the opportunity to make important new connections in the Arizona local food community, but we also get the chance to get important face time with customers to further build our business."

David Heininger, Black Mesa Ranch


Create Opportunities for Economic & Community Development in Rural Arizona

"Science Happens Here has been an interesting and fun way to involve families in the STEM taking place in Graham County. I am grateful to the Local First Arizona Foundation and our local businesses for providing this unique opportunity to our students.”
