Why Donate?

Access to early stage investment dollars and follow up investment rounds have been a challenge for Arizona's growing life science industry since the creation of the Arizona Bioscience Cluster in 1997.

AZ-HCIF, a separate  philanthropic endowment account managed within the Healthcare Impact Foundation, is part of a multi-pronged strategy to address this issue by establishing a vehicle for ongoing and sustained investments that will help Arizona life since innovators grow great companies and discover, develop, and deliver life saving and life changing innovations that will benefit Arizonans today and for generations to come.

Achieving our  goal requires a community effort.

Arizona's "collaborative gene" will play a major role in the success AZ-HCIF.  It will take a a combination of time, treasury and talent from a growing team of volunteers and donors to achieve the goal of building a $250 million endowment for AZ-HCIF by the end of 2019
