Funding, Training & Resources

Our History

RAP incorporated in 1992 as a 501 (c) 3 public benefit corporation. It aids client nonprofits in two ways: direct grants and technical assistance.

Grants are made by the Request For Proposals (RFP) process and by “Desert Fast Pitch,” program which teaches nonprofits how to pitch their organization to potential funders. Desert Fast Pitch also rewards participating organizations with cash grants on a competitive basis. RAP also provides smaller grants on an emergency basis.
