The Flinn Foundation is a privately endowed grantmaking organization that was established in 1965 by Dr. and Mrs. Robert S. Flinn to improve the quality of life in Arizona to benefit future generations. The foundation, based in Phoenix, awards grants to nonprofit organizations in Arizona, primarily to improve the competitiveness of the state's biomedical research enterprise. It also supports the Flinn Scholars Program, which offers top Arizona high school graduates full-ride financial benefits to attend one of the state's public universities; arts and culture organizations in Arizona; and the Arizona Center for Civic Leadership. In addition, the foundation often convenes leaders in workshops and educational forums to enhance the effectiveness of its grants programs, and offers use of its meeting facilities at no cost to Arizona's nonprofit organizations serving the fields of the biosciences and healthcare, education, arts and culture, and civic leadership.
