Welcome to the Paulden Foundation
Where we value building a strong community together.
We appreciate your interest in us and look forward to partnering with you in the near future. Feel free to look around and reach out to us with any questions!
We are a local private nonprofit corporation. We exist for the purpose of serving the rural community of Paulden in Yavapai County, Arizona. We are 501(c)3 nonprofit run by a Board of Directors. Our mission is to strengthen and expand existing programs and services as well as develop and create programs and facilities that will serve our growing community. The needs are many! Our vision includes regularly and systematically assessing the needs of the community in contrast with the services that are available elsewhere and the services already being provided locally. We will identify the gaps and barriers and then either advocate, partner with others, or develop what is necessary and desired for our community.
We have been equipping ourselves to accomplish this vision through attendance at seminars and programs. We have training in leadership development, fundraising, assessing needs, and are becoming certified with various agencies in order to become their local representatives within our community. We will continue to pursue training opportunities in order to serve our community well. Building the infrastructure of our organization in order to facilitate our mission and vision has been our recent focus. In addition to that, we have been busy networking and building relationships within the community as well as outside the community and advocating for the needs of Paulden.
It is evident that there are many areas of unmet needs. We have made preliminary inquiries and had discussions with area agencies who offer programs that would be of tremendous benefit to Paulden residents, especially seniors, low-income residents and families and are identifying the primary barriers to providing services. We plan to continue these discussions and develop workable solutions for our community.
