According to a September 8th article in the Arizona Daily Star, recent rule clarifications by the Arizona Department of Gaming could threaten contributions from casino-owning tribes to nonprofit organizations. A clarification of information in tribal casino compacts seems to require that funds go directly to Arizona cities, towns, counties, or the Commerce and Economic Development Commission Local Communities Fund and that those dollars may not be allocated direcly to 501(c)(3) organizations or other charitable entities. It is also currently unclear whether or not processes can be put in place for those municipalities to then re-distribute the funds to nonprofits. We recently polled our Member organizations to see what they think about the potential impact of this recent clarification.
The Alliance of Arizona Nonprofits is always on the lookout for strategic new ways to enhance the services we provide. One way we do this is by partnering with organizations that specialize in areas that can advance our mission to help Arizona nonprofits be the best they can be.

That's why we're excited to announce our new partnership with Arizona Nonprofit Academy to offer professional training opportunities, at reasonable prices, designed specifically for nonprofit organizations and the challenges they face.
