Arizonans want a strong economy, a good education system and the availability of high-quality, high-paying jobs. Science Foundation Arizona (SFAz) was established in 2006 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit public/private partnership to address exactly those issues.  But we need your support to do it and ensure that we continue to create a better economic future for all Arizonans.

Since inception, SFAz has awarded more than 150 individual grants totally over $110M, which has led to 1,865 direct jobs, 207 patents filed and/or issued, 24 technology companies formed in Arizona and 23 technology licenses in place. Additionally, SFAz’s STEM initiatives have impacted more than 385,000 students and more than 10,600 teachers.

Online contributions are limited to $1,000. Should you wish to make a larger donation, please contact Karen Lord at 602-682-2800 or

Checks for either SFAz can be sent to SFAz directly at 400 E. Van Buren Street, Suite 200, Phoenix, AZ 85004.

Thank you again for your contribution and for helping create a bright future for Arizonans today and for generations to come.
