The Fountain Hills Community Foundation continues to support local non-profits
In 1995 the Sunridge Foundation was created to provide support to the non-profits of Fountain Hills and create a legacy of giving that extends to the seniors, children and families of our community. In 2006 the name was changed to the Fountain Hills Community Foundation but unfortunately went dormant during the recession in 2008.
In 2019, under the direction of Dori Wittrig, the Foundation was resurrected and a new Board was elected. Kim Widner, Clayton Corey, Mark Dalton, Bill Pape, Michele McGuinness, Nicole Perkins, Jenny Willigrod, Dori Wittrig, and Robert E. Thomson have all volunteered to set forth on a revitalized path and breathe new life into FHCF.
Fortunately for the new Board, funds still remained and FHCF was able to immediately begin the grant process. Nearly $30,000 was awarded this year on top of the more than $1 million that the Foundation had distributed in previous years.
Plans are currently underway for the inaugural Flutter at the Fountain fundraiser where local artists will transform metal butterflies into works of art to be auctioned off, culminating in a Gala where the entire community will be invited to celebrate 25 years of serving. Please visit www.fountainhillsgives.com/flutter-at-the-fountain to find out how you can get involved and support this exciting event.Despite the hardships faced due to Covid-19, the FHCF remains committed now more than ever to help our community and its organizations amidst the constantly evolving uncertainty of the future. It is times like these that we must all band together and the Fountain Hills Community Foundation looks forward to finding ways to meet the new challenges we are all facing.
