Thriving Nonprofit Technology Grants

TOMF's Thriving Nonprofit Technology Grants have been renewed for 2021! Applications will be accepted until 5 pm on October 24, 2021.

Technology has long been identified as a significant barrier to the advancement of nonprofit organizations. Hardware and software costs create significant hurdles when paired with a steep learning curve for an already taxed staff and budget. The need for foundational or upgraded technology was exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic and continues to present significant challenges as service providers adjust to an increasing demand for virtual workspaces and on-demand, online service delivery, fundraising and programming. Tucson Osteopathic Medical Foundation (TOMF) acknowledges the adaptability and resilience of Southern Arizona's thriving nonprofits and has created the Thriving Nonprofit Technology (TNT) Grants to provide a technology funding infusion to support the continued achievement of unique and meaningful public health outcomes, not just for today, but into the future as well.

TNT Grant applicants must be 501c3 organizations with missions, projects and/or programs that aim to advance and/or improve the health of people living in Southern Arizona. A minimum of five (5) awards of up to $5,000 each will be awarded in November, 2021. Grant funds awarded must be used to purchase items necessary for virtual trainings, meetings, events, fundraising, computer system upgrades, etc., including but not limited to software, hardware, lighting, cameras, computers, IPads, microphones, and/or training associated with technology integration. Funds may be used for existing and/or new projects and programming. Previous TNT Grant Awardees may reapply.

Additional restrictions may apply. Email Nicole Struck, Program Director at nicole@tomf.org to request an application or with questions.

2020 TNT Grant Awardees were Boys & Girls Clubs of Tucson ($5,000), Community Gardens of Tucson ($4,915), St. Luke's Home ($5,000) and Valley Assistance Services ($5,000). Visit our News page to learn more about their projects.
