Investing in the Future of Fountain Hills
GiveGrant Process


The Foundation, established in 1995, as the Sunridge Foundation was the brain- child of local visionaries who saw a community need. Various educational, cultural and humanitarian non-profit organizations needed additional funding if they were to grow and survive.


Fountain Hills’ biggest, most colorful event of the year is here! Coming November 5th and 6th to the Fountain Hills Community Garden.   Join the effort to help fund the activities of local non-profit organizations who support youth, seniors and families in our community.
