The Fountain Hills Community Foundation is getting ready to celebrate two milestones on March 23, 2022. Guests and members alike are invited when the Foundation will make their Annual Gifting Presentation to local non-profit groups in the afternoon, then host their Annual Membership Meeting later in the evening. Both take place at the DC Bar and Grill.

Dori Wittrig, President of the Foundation, glows when she talks about this particular event.

“The Gifting Presentation is the culmination of all our fundraising work and is one of the most heartwarming events you can attend in Fountain Hills. This year, we will award $50,000 to 27 local nonprofit groups, while we hear about the goals of their organizations. Members from each organization are required to attend, but it’s also a great way for anyone interested in the good works of the Community Foundation to come learn about what we do and meet the volunteers who give their time to our local nonprofit groups. It’s a very inspiring afternoon!”

The Gifting Presentation will occur 3:30 to 4:30 at DC Grill. Afterward, there is a social hour with beverages and snacks, a chance for recipients and participants to network.

Then, at 5:30, Members as well as the public are invited to attend the organization’s annual Membership Meeting. Dinner will be served while members of the Board of Directors give a report of the Foundation’s 2021 activities. Members will also elect the organization’s Board of Directors for the following year.

Attendance at the Gifting Ceremony is free and all are encouraged to attend. CLICK HERE TO REGISTER FOR THE ANNUAL MEETING AND PURCHASE DINNER TICKETS ($35). For more information, visit
