Arizona Newspapers Foundation

The Arizona Newspapers Foundation was formed late in 1997 to give newspapers an opportunity to assist journalists on a new level.

The Foundation focuses on education with scholarships and through its alliance with the Arizona Interscholastic Press Association. The Foundation has made donations to the AIPA Summer Journalism Workshop at Northern Arizona University and the Minority Students Workshop.

The ANF has also began accepting donations for the Endowment and Journalism Support Fund. The goal is to reach $1 million to use for support of the journalism schools in Arizona’s three state universities.

The Foundation is a 501(c)3 charitable organization. Contributions are tax deductible.

Why donate?

Donations and endowment gifts provide security over the long term. Our goal is to build a strong endowment fund to create the financial base we need to train and educate Arizona’s next generation of reporters.

The earnings from your gift are divided among Arizona’s three state universities: Northern Arizona University, Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. With your donation, you ensure that Arizona continues to grow as an outstanding place of higher education in journalism.

For more information, or to make a donation to the Foundation over the phone (have your credit card handy), contact Liisa Straub at (602) 261-7655 ext. 105 OR FILL OUT THIS FORM AND FAX/MAIL BACK.
