Sundt delivers a check to Kitchen on the Street


Funds will support 16 organizations to help disadvantaged adults and children.


Tempe, Ariz. (August 14, 2023) – The Sundt Foundation recently awarded $107,500 in grants to 16 Phoenix-area charities.

“It is an honor each quarter to be able to award grants to deserving nonprofits in our community,” said Scott LaPoint, the Sundt Foundation’s Phoenix region board member. “These nonprofits are providing critical support services and resources to children and adults in need.”

The following nonprofits received $10,000 grants: Kitchen on the Street, United Cerebral Palsy of Central Arizona (UCP), Advocacy 31nine, Billy’s Place, Rainbow Acres and UMOM New Day Centers.

Kitchen on the Street’s grant is designated for their weekend nutrition program serving food-insecure children and families. UCP provides therapy and support services to children, teenagers and adults with cerebral palsy. Advocacy 31nine will use their grant for their Training Program, which provides training for caregivers on advocating for unique student needs, and their Individual Advocacy program, which works directly with at-risk foster youth to identify barriers to school success.

Billy’s Place provides necessary grief support services and resources for children and families. Rainbow Acres will use their funds for their Adopt-A-Rancher program, which ensures that adults with disabilities are able to receive essential support services. UMOM New Day Centers help families recovering from the trauma of homelessness through emergency shelter, physical and mental health care, employment training, job opportunities and youth programming.

Foster Arizona received a $7,500 grant to support its Housing Project, a six-unit, 26-bed transitional housing program for young adults ages 18 to 24.

Seven nonprofits received $5,000 grants: Boys Hope Girls Hope of Arizona; The Center for the Rights of Abused Children; ElderTLC, Inc; Child Crisis Arizona; Mission of Mercy, Inc; Christian Life Outreach Operating Mom’s Pantry and Lost Our Home Pet Rescue.

Foothills Food Bank & Resource Center and Hope Women’s Center each received a $2,500 grant.
