The Arizona Cardinals made a $1 million founding contribution to the AZ Coronavirus Relief Fund, part of the Arizona Together initiative launched Tuesday by Gov. Doug Ducey to help the state fight the coronavirus. "Like so many in our community, this unprecedented crisis has us asking what we can do to help and what might have the greatest impact," Cardinals chairman and president Michael Bidwill said. "We are grateful for the creation of this relief fund, are proud to support its critically important mission and hope that others throughout the community can join this effort in whatever way that they are able."
The fund is designed to give financial support to organizations that are working to provide protective equipment to medical professionals, help nonprofits serving the most vulnerable, and give technological assets to students who need them for online learning.
