Invest in Arizona

To her role as CEO of Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits, Kristen Merrifield brings more than 14 years’ experience that includes leadership roles with the Arizona Small Business Association, the ASU Foundation and the Greater Phoenix Chamber of Commerce. Merrifield is an active participant in the business and nonprofit community in her roles as Past President of the Arizona Society of Association Executives Board and active member of groups such as the American Society of Association Executives, serving on its Public Policy Committee; the Young Nonprofit Professional Network; the Organization for Nonprofit Executives; the National Council of Nonprofits, serving on its Membership Committee; and the Nonprofit Executives Together group in Tucson.

Arizona Gives Day is a powerful 24-hour online giving experience that unites Arizonans around causes they believe in. The single, statewide day of giving has raised $7.4 million for Arizona nonprofits since 2013. Arizona nonprofits do much more than provide necessary services to our communities — they are an integral part of our state’s economy. Annually, they have an economic impact of $22.4 billion, more than 8 percent of Arizona’s gross state product. Arizona nonprofits also account for 325,000 jobs. At the Alliance, our mission is to unite, strengthen and advance Arizona’s nonprofit sector. Arizona Gives Day provides us with a unique opportunity to put our mission into action in a way that not only propels our Arizona nonprofit community, but also cultivates a powerful and engaging spirit of philanthropy statewide. Monetary donations are the most direct way to help a nonprofit make an impact — donations allow nonprofits to allocate funds where they are most needed. Arizona Gives is focused on helping participating nonprofits raise funds that are critical to supporting their work. By donating, you simultaneously invest in the future of Arizona and help nonprofits make an impact in your community. This year, we are excited to roll out an all-new, mobile-friendly and user-friendly giving platform, making it easier and more exciting than ever to find and donate to hundreds of local nonprofits. Participating nonprofits also have the exciting opportunity to earn prize money from our incentive fund. We paid out more than $175,000 in prize checks in 2016 alone! Prize categories change each year but are based on criteria such as most money raised in certain categories, most donations over a certain amount during a “power hour,” or even reaching collective milestones throughout the day. Exciting highlights from last year’s Arizona Gives Day are spotlighted on the next page. It is critical that we engage individuals, community leaders, corporate partners and our small-business community in helping us exceed the nearly $3 million we raised last year. Our theme for 2017 is “Invest in Arizona,” and we believe everyone has a unique opportunity to do just that. You can utilize the Giving Guide in this month’s issue of In Business Magazine to learn about some of the great local charities and nonprofit organizations participating in this year’s Arizona Gives Day. Pick one (or several!) to make a donation to on April 4,2017, at www.arizonagives.org. Together, we can make a huge impact!

Sincerely,

ARIZONA GIVES DAY Since its inauguration in 2013, Arizona Gives Day has steadily increased the donations to local nonprofits. 2013: raised $1.110 million 2014: raised $1.393 million 2015: raised $2.055 million

Homeward Bound

Homeward Bound is a non-profit organization based in Phoenix, Arizona that creates pathways out of poverty for homeless families ready to make a change. We help homeless families by providing them with housing and a program of services that help them get back on their own two feet. Homeward Bound families are provided with affordable housing that is safe and well-maintained. Each family is assigned a case manager, who helps them focus on budgeting, repairing their credit, and getting the resources they need to achieve their goals. Our program also helps families develop basic life skills, including GED tutoring, self-esteem, home maintenance, parenting, and time management. We help 150 homeless families in our community every year, and more than 75 percent of them move on to permanent housing. That’s because, by the time they leave our program, they’ve received housing, job training, life skills, and learned how to budget and save money. You can donate to help our families, volunteer to help provide needed services, or simply learn more by visiting our website at at www.HomewardBoundAZ.org and liking us on Facebook at www.Facebook.com/HomewardBoundAZ. Help us break the cycle of poverty today!

Support My Club It is the mission of Support My Club to support students on their path to graduation by engaging communities to fulfill the needs of school clubs and teams. We believe that all students have the opportunity to pursue their hopes, dreams and aspirations through participation in extracurricular activities, and Support My Club does just that. Support My Club achieves this and provides a convenient, specific and efficient way for individuals to support out-of-classroom education to allow students to be properly equipped to pursue their interests; to reduce club sponsor and coach out-of-pocket costs; and to reduce club time spent on fundraising, allowing focus to remain on the original activity. Research says that structured after-school activities work. They work to engage students, keep them in school, and keep them from participating in risky behaviors. Clubs and sports activities need help to provide the inspired minds and innovative ideas of students with the tools to succeed in their missions. That’s where we come in.  We support clubs in all focus areas and encourage all students to get involved with extra-curricular activity to become further engaged and hone skills. Students

learn to collaborate, manage and balance their time, become more financial literate, and gain valuable leadership experience. We are an e-commerce solution where donors can support the needs of high school clubs and sports. Clubs post their specific needs, and donors “shop” for items that speak to them. Items are added to the online cart, donors make a 100-percent-tax deductible purchase, and Support My Club delivers the item directly to the club! For every $100 of value received, the club completes one hour of community service, allowing the receiver to become the giver and the cycle of philanthropy to continue. There is something for everyone. Products range from $2 to thousands of dollars, and items represented from the four A’s: Academics, Athletics, Arts and Activities. We believe that anyone can be a philanthropist, and SMC provides a way for citizens to engage in specific and meaningful philanthropy at a giving level comfortable to them. Now, communities near and far have a way to support the education of extra-curricular activities, where excited and imaginative teens work to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others.

Read Better Be Better

DID YOU KNOW? 84% of Arizona’s low-income 3rd graders are not reading at grade level, making them four times less likely to graduate from high school.

Read Better Be Better (RBBB) is an after-school literacy program that helps children improve their reading skills in order to become better learners. We are the only nonprofit organization that inspires and equips Arizona youth to help us solve this literacy crisis. HOW DOES IT WORK? The program pairs trained 8th grade students with struggling 3rd grade readers. Together, they work through our proven curriculum, followed by fun group activities; all of which are proven to develop literacy skills as a foundation for broader academic success.

www.readbetterbebetter.org facebook.com / readbetterbebetter

WHAT DO THE KIDS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT RBBB? “It helped me learn how to know what I’m reading. I feel better at school when I’m reading.” (Robert, 3rd grade) “Now I’m thinking in the future I might be wanting to teach little kids. I have been reading to my niece and nephew a lot more.” (Crystal, 8th grade) “Now, here at school, I behave a bit different because I have Chris looking up to me as an example.” (Arlon, 8th grade)
