Work could begin before spring on an effort to renovate two existing structures on the east side of Tucson that will be used by and for nonprofit organizations.
The Community Foundation for Southern Arizona has announced that it is updating a 24,000 square foot structure at 5049 E. Broadway to serve as its new headquarters.
The foundation, which was founded in 1980, is dedicated to helping other nonprofits fund a variety of community projects. It has, since its beginning, given out more than $160 million in grants to educational institutes and nonprofits.
Officials with the group say that one building at the new site will serve as their offices, while they plan to adapt the rest of that building and another structure for additional nonprofit space.
So far, the foundation has raised more than $1.5 million for what is expected to be a $4 million project.
If all goes according to plan, work on the site will be completed by next summer.
