Building a Legacy in Fountain Hills and the surrounding communities.
The Fountain Hills Community Foundation is a 501 (C)(3), investing in nonprofit organizations whose work improves the lives of our youth, seniors, families and community.
FHCF works with nonprofit organizations as a partner, helping them to identify problems, find solutions, and become continually stronger and more effective.
A HISTORY OF GIVING
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.
The Foundation was created as an all-volunteer, 501 (C)(3) non- profit organization (EIN – 86-0800268), to provide financial support to these needy hometown community organizations. In 2006, the Sunridge Foundation evolved into the Fountain Hills Community Foundation.
Since 1995, the Foundation has provided over $1.2 Million in financial support to educational, cultural and humanitarian non-profit organizations in the Fountain Hills area.
In 2020, the Foundation celebrated its 25th year with the announcement of the SunRidge Founder’s Club, a group of volunteers who were active during the first 25 years of the organization’s history.
