Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits
About the organization
The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits was formed in 2004 to be the unifying voice of the nonprofit sector in Arizona. We are the only statewide association dedicated to serving the needs of the more than 20,000 nonprofit organizations all across Arizona. We do this through advocacy, education, information, connection and resources, which are tailored specifically for nonprofits, their staff, their board and their volunteers. The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits has managed an intermediary AmeriCorps VISTA grant for rural communities and statewide organizations for over 10 years.
The COVID-19 pandemic illuminated the importance of eliminating the digital divide in rural communities. Families living in poverty lost access to educational opportunities, support services, and anti-poverty programming. To combat the effects of the digital divide, the Town of Camp Verde Library needs a VISTA to form a volunteer program to address the effects of the digital divide.
