Scottsdale 20/30 Club announces more than $1 million in donations to children's charities

Grants range from $2,500 to $150,000


 The Scottsdale 20/30 Club has provided  $1,279,500 in grants to 48 Arizona nonprofits focused on helping children with organizations receiving  donations ranging from $2,500 to $150,000, according to a release.

“We are honored to help fund some of our state’s leading children’s charities and the life-changing programs they’ve developed.”  Scottsdale 20/30 Club President Evan Dahn said in the release.

“Our  50 members work tirelessly throughout the year for the singular purpose of providing financial aid for these organizations. We’re incredibly proud of the results that our efforts have yielded and thankful to our community for supporting our events and making this all possible.”

The Scottsdale 20/30 Club hosts three major fundraising events throughout the year, including NiteFlite, Brokers for Kids and Agents Benefiting Children. All proceeds from these events go directly toward the annual grants to charity partners dedicated to helping children in Arizona, the release stated.

Organizations receiving grants this year include:

  • Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona received a $125,000 grant for its Scholar Success Program and BHGH Academy Program.
  • Care Fund received a $100,000 grant for its mortgage and rent assistance program to enable families with children experiencing an extended health crisis to remain in their homes.
  • Arizona Burn Foundation received a $60,000 grant for its Growing H.O.P.E. capital campaign to expand healing and thriving opportunities for its burn clients across the state.
  • Homeless Youth Connection received a $50,000 grant to provide services and interventions to homeless youth, creating a path to graduation and future success.
  • Children's Cancer Network received a $50,000 grant for its Holiday Surprises program, providing holiday gifts to cancer fighters and their families.

  • Amanda Hope Rainbow Angels received a $50,000 grant to provide counseling and mentorship to families with a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.

Additional nonprofits receiving grant funding include Waste Not; Miracle League of Arizona; SAARC; AZ LEOS; Junior Achievement; Camelot Therapeutic Horsemanship; Child Crisis Arizona; Teen Lifeline; Love Up Foundation; Ability 360; Valleywise Health Foundation; Playworks Education Energized; Sharing Down Syndrome; Ryan House; Valley of the Sun YMCA; Move One Million; and UBU Project.

Arizona Burn Foundation CEO Rex Albright said the foundation's $60K grant  will support life-changing programs  such as Camp Courage, a weeklong summer camp in Prescott where burn survivors can engage with others who have been through similar circumstances.

“I will never forget when I asked one of our campers what camp meant to him,” Albright said. “He responded: ‘Camp gave me my name back.’ He went on to tell me that before camp, he was the “burn survivor” – at baseball, in the neighborhood at school. When he introduced himself at camp by saying he was a burn survivor, counselors said ‘No – who are you?’ He said he came away from camp being Jason again, regaining his identity beyond being a burn survivor.”
