Each year, the Scottsdale 20/30 Foundation evaluates hundreds of applications to choose which charities will receive funding at our annual “Gifting Meeting”. While our main charity partners have varied significantly over the years, we look for organizations whose mission is based on supporting the needs of children, are non-religious, and are not predominantly funded by municipal sources. If you are interested in applying for a grant or have any questions about the application process, please contact our Charities Chairman here at [email protected]

Here are some of the Charities that Scottsdale 20/30 supports:
