Publications and Resources

Members receive monthly e-newsletters with highlights of current national and local philanthropy news, plus relevant resources for the work you do. AGF regularly partners with experts and local thought leaders to produce white papers, reports and other publications. The AGF website also houses a library of grantmaking resources for your review.

AGF Member Listserv

AGF members are subscribed to our listserv – a group email list that enables members to communicate directly with the whole AGF membership. You can tap the collective knowledge of your grantmaking peers by submitting questions, sharing your grantmaking highlights, or notifying them of an upcoming event.

Team Assistance

AGF team is available to answer technical questions, direct you to resources and connect you with peers. Send your questions to support@azgrantmakers.org.

Research on Arizona Grantmakers

AGF has access to the Foundation Center’s online directory of foundations and can provide members with information on national and local foundations funding in specific interest areas throughout Arizona. This information can be especially helpful when looking for partners to provide advice, matching dollars, etc.

Audio & Web Conferencing

AGF extends a discount for an easy-to-use conferencing solution to our members. ReadyTalk offers its subscribers the following services: teleconferences, virtual meetings, and webinar functionality. Contact support@azgrantmakers.org to learn more.

Directors & Officers Liability Insurance

With the increased governmental scrutiny on the philanthropic and nonprofit sectors, many experts strongly recommend that foundations carry Directors & Officers Insurance to protect both trustees and the foundation. AGF offers a discounted Directors’ and Officer’s Liability Insurance coverage program to our members through a partnership with the Council on Foundations.
