Phoenix (July 12, 2016) Tumbleweed has received a grant totaling $128,537 from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust.
“Our agency has aggressively expanded service to homeless youth in the Valley as the population of young homeless people has grown,” Tumbleweed CEO Cynthia Schuler said. “This grant from the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust will enable us to relocate, enlarge and modernize our Donation Center so it is more accessible to our youth, who rely on the Center for clothing and other needs.”
“During her career, Nina Mason Pulliam shared her financial success and business leadership skills with many charities. She had a keen awareness of challenges that face our community and would take great pride in the outstanding work being done by organizations like Tumbleweed,” said Carol Schilling, Trustee chair. “Through her Trust, we continue to build on her legacy, which clearly reflects her heart for philanthropy.”
The grant to Tumbleweed represents one of 26 awarded to nonprofit organizations in Arizona by the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust during the first of two grant cycles this year. Since the Trust began its grant making in 1998, it has awarded more than $260 million to 933 nonprofit organizations in its home states of Arizona and Indiana.
