ABOUT US > Mission
We enhance the historical, cultural and human qualities that make Bisbee unique. The Bisbee Foundation creates and builds support to assure the continuing success of Bisbee.
We encourage a culture of giving by building community endowments for the Bisbee community. The Bisbee Foundation is an affiliate of the Arizona Community Foundation, which provides fiscal and fiduciary oversight of endowments as well as administrative, marketing and technical support.
The Foundation is Bisbee’s premier charitable partner, trusted by hundreds of generous former and current Bisbee residents. Grants to individuals and organizations have supported and encouraged a range of projects contributing to the quality of life for community residents. Scholarships have enabled students in Bisbee schools to continue their education and begin to realize their life goals.
