Tempe organizations distributes thousands of dollars to 40 Valley area charities
Something Good is sponsored by Papa Murphy’s
TEMPE, AZ (3TV/CBS 5) — Non-profits have been hit hard over the last several years because of the pandemic. So one Valley organization is doing “Something Good” by distributing hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to help area charities.
A community group of local leaders makes up the Tempe Diablos, and they recently announced they would be awarding nearly $370,000 to more than 40 Valley organizations this year! For non-profits, support from the community is vital so these grants are a big boost.
The mission of the Tempe Diablos is to empower projects that make significant contributions to the community. That means supporting organizations that focus on food insecurity, ending child abuse, making STEM more accessible and so much more.
The money to fund these grants all comes from various fundraising efforts by Tempe Diablos members. Some of this year’s grant recipients include:
- Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels
- Best Buddies in Arizona
- EMPACT Suicide Prevention Center
- Sharing Down Syndrome Arizona
- Village 360
The Tempe Diablos Charities grant application for 2023 is now open. Applications are due by Jan. 15, 2023.
