Two West Valley nonprofit organizations were among those awarded grants.
The Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc., an all-volunteer philanthropic 501 c(3) nonprofit which provides grants to grass roots charities that assist under-served women and children at risk in Arizona, announced its 2019 grant recipients.
Now in its 17th year, the Arizona Women’s Partnership awarded a total of $35,000 in grants to the following non-profits:

The Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc. has awarded more than $450,000 in grants to over 70 charities since its formation in 2002. The amount awarded annually is dependent upon the success of fundraising efforts.
This year the Violet M. Johnson Family Foundation contributed another $25,000 to the Arizona Women’s Partnership in honor of their maternal grandmother.
“We are grateful for this donation and for all of our generous supporters; together we continue to make a difference in the lives of others,” Paula Cullison, Arizona Women’s Partnership president and founder stated.
