Scottsdale Active 20/30 Club #547, Inc. was chartered in 1987 as an organization for young men to give back to their community by raising money to support children’s charities; Scottsdale 20/30 Club is a chapter of Active 20/30 US & Canada. The philanthropic and social club is comprised of up to fifty young men under the age of forty and has raised millions of dollars for local Arizona non-profit organizations through its three fundraising events: NiteFlite, Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefiting Children.
Scottsdale 20/30 Club differs from other service organizations in that it not only raises money for children’s charities, but also encourage “hands on” interaction with the children the club supports. This active participation serves to strengthen relationships with those it serves and create a true partnership with its charity partners. This active participation embodies the Active 20/30 slogan “One never stands so tall as when kneeling to help a child.”
In 1996, Scottsdale 20/30 Club created a charitable foundation, Scottsdale Active 20/30 Foundation, Inc., to ensure that the organization would be able to give to Arizona children’s charities in perpetuity. All proceeds from Scottsdale 20/30 Club’s fundraising activities are funneled directly to 501 (c)(3) foundation, with 30% of the funds going into an endowment fund, and the remainder going into a general fund for disbursement to the club’s charity partners.
The highest honor a past active member of Scottsdale 20/30 Club can achieve is life membership. Life members are nominated by active club members and voted on by the club’s Membership Committee and Board of Directors. The award is given to members whose contributions have helped shape the course of Scottsdale 20/30 Club. The current life members of Scottsdale 20/30 Club are: Brian Ackerman, Mark Altieri, Cord Armstrong, Zack Barna, Korey Boals, Kory Blythe, David Cohen, John Damiris, Steve Davidson, John Dennett, Mike DiDomenico, Paul Douglas, Phil Dregalla, John Fitzpatrick, Jeremy Grogan, Ben Hawkins, Tom Lombardi, Eric Luoma, Keaton Merrell, Kurt Merschman, Mike Merucci, Jeff Meyer, Dan Postal, Bobby Raines, Walter “Tres” Winius III, Patrick Sheehan.
