Phoenix Suns Charities’ grant application process affords local nonprofit organizations the opportunity to tell their story with a dynamic video submission to demonstrate the scope and impact of their organization's work.
Local nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply for funding by submitting an engaging 90-second video to demonstrate how they are improving the lives of Arizonans. The grant application process allows Phoenix Suns Charities to offer access to programs throughout the state by offering unrestricted funding, as philanthropic organizations can apply for grants that support their mission and programs to make a positive impact throughout Arizona.
Phoenix Suns Charities will accept only ONE proposal per 501c3 organization for the focus areas of: Healthcare, Education & Career Development, and Basketball & Recreation. Not one proposal per focus area. Grants are unrestricted and will range from $10,000 to $25,000. Phoenix Suns Charities’ general grants will prioritize basketball inspired initiatives from the above focus areas that benefit and support Arizona’s children and families in need.
Since its inception in 1988, Phoenix Suns Charities has been focused on making our community a better place through its mission of supporting children and family services throughout Arizona and has distributed more than $35M to local non-profits and organizations in need. The entire Suns organization has embedded itself locally by supporting community efforts through hundreds of player appearances and thousands of volunteer hours by Suns players and staff.
