PHOENIX, AZ—December 27, 2018—The Giving Group Arizona (TGGAZ) is delighted to announce Civitan Foundation, Inc. as this quarter’s recipient of their $10,000 Impact Award.
“Receiving The Giving Group award of $10,000 was exciting and so unexpected. The funds are going to help us renovate our outdoor recreation area at Civitan Village, so our members will have an even better experience with games, gardening and other outdoor activities,” said Dawn Trapp, CEO of Civitan Foundation, Inc. “We are grateful for this grant. It shows we are doing good works and it is being recognized by the community.”
“The Giving Group concept is simple; each member of the TGGAZ makes a $100 donation through the Giving Group website each quarter and the accumulated funds are awarded to a different local non-profit of the members’ choice, four times per year,” explained Giving Group founder Brian Yampolsky. “This quarter’s selection of Civitan Foundation, Inc. perfectly illustrates what we’re all about, amplified giving that makes a significant impact for a local non-profit.”
