Active Grants

Below is a list of the “active” grants of the Flinn Foundation—those grants that have been awarded and have yet to receive final payment; and/or for which grant-related activities have not concluded.

Many Flinn Foundation grants are multi-year awards that receive payments at several junctures. In some cases, grants are extended (without additional funding) beyond their scheduled date of conclusion.

This list is not comprehensive, as it excludes modest grants for membership dues to philanthropic organizations and other miscellaneous awards, but represents the Foundation’s project-specific grant-making activity to achieve its strategic goals.

Expenditure-responsibility grant to support a multimedia journalism initiative to deepen public understanding of bioscience research, industry development, and clinical advances in Arizona.
