Green Valley is located in South Pima County along the I-19 corridor south of Tucson. The area is home to families, retirees, ranches and many growing businesses. This diversity allows the Greater Green Valley Community Foundation to focus on older adults, healthcare, children, housing, education, the environment, animals and the arts. Grantmaking reflects the uniqueness of the Foundation which serves the towns of Green Valley, Sahuarita, Amado, Arivaca, Tubac, Tumacacori and the surrounding area.
Building a Community
In 1998, the Greater Green Valley Community Foundation merged with the Green Valley Community Fund which had been operating since 1970 serving local residents and organizations. Our goal is to build community now and for many years to come by bringing people and organizations together around local issues and opportunities. The GGVCF has an unrestricted endowment fund. Our local board and staff have an in-depth understanding of the concerns and resources that shape our community, and we are dedicated to continue building this permanent endowment or savings account to serve the Green Valley areas long-term needs through local grant-making. We also provide technical assistance and training to encourage these local community organizations to grow and extend their reach.

Our Spice Center in Tumacacori, Arizona is located in the heart of the historic Santa Cruz Valley. The Mission of San Jose de Tumacacori was founded first by the Jesuits in the 1690’s. The church, which still stands today, was built in the early 1800’s. The Presidio of San Ignacio de Tubac, the oldest of 3 Spanish military outposts, was established here after an Indian rebellion in 1751. By the late 1800’s the valley was dotted with ranches, and mining camps, dominated by dauntless cattlemen and prospectors.
Santa Cruz Chili & Spice Company is both a manufacturer and retailer of fine chili products. At our Spice Center in Tumacacori, Arizona we sell, along with Santa Cruz Products, a wide variety of gourmet Southwestern foods, cookbooks and a large selection of spices and herbs. We also have a quaint Western Museum documenting the rich history of the area.
