The Arizona Women’s Partnership, Inc., an all-volunteer philanthropic 501c(3) nonprofit which provides grants to grassroots charities that assist under-served women and children at risk in Arizona, has announced its 2019 Grant Recipients.

The group 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.
