Community Fund of Sun City West, Inc.
The Community Fund of Sun City West - Neighbors Helping Neighbors.
The 2018 direct mail campaign is underway. Mailings went out to all residential addresses in Sun City West in either November or January, but only one solicitation per address. Again this year our goal is to contact every SCW resident, including winter visitors, and to ask for their help. The Community Fund provides a financial safety net for SCW residents who are experiencing difficulty paying for food, medicine, utilities, and other basic needs. Based on the results of our 2017 campaign, we have recently increased the limits on financial support to our clients by over 20%. This is the first time we have been able to increase support in over 10 years. Without your generous donations, that would not have been possible. Look at our "More Ways to Give" page for even more ways you can contribute.
This is a reminder to call the Community Fund of Sun City West if you are having trouble meeting your monthly bill due dates. The number for the hotline is: 623-546-1122. If you leave your name, number and a short message, a volunteer representative will be glad to return your call. The fund helps SCW residents with certain expenditures when all their money is spent on necessary bills every month, and they have nothing left over in their checking and savings accounts at the end of the month. Clients must be below a certain income level and have no investments, annuities, or dividends, nor may they own additional properties.
As a general rule –
If you believe you qualify and need the type of assistance we can supply, please don’t hesitate to call: 623-546-1122.
These donations are based on you registering to have donations given to us and the value of your purchases at Fry's. Other than initial registration, there is really nothing you need to do. It is a painless way to increase your support for the Community Fund. If you are not already registered, the process is detailed below.
