Since its inception in 1983, the Angel Charity for Children has helped over one million children in Pima County have a better life, helping to improve their lives. The Angel Charity has helped to fund over 68 unique projects within the community, including construction, expansion, and renovation of children facilities, as well as fund programs and investments in scientific breakthroughs that improve the health of children.
The Angel Charity takes careful deliberation when selecting which organizations they partner with and help to fund, ensuring that these beneficiaries are viable and sustainable entities within their network. The organization also relies heavily on their dedicated volunteers for the past 34 years, many with strong professional backgrounds in finance, law, marketing, accounting, and real estate. Some volunteers and board members are also full time parents, bringing their parental experience to help discuss and identify issues that surround children in need.
In the last year, the Angel Charity has donated more than 700,000 dollars to educational facilities and organizations that help to support the Tucson Unified School District (TUSD) and the schools within. One beneficiary, the Imago Dei Middle School, was selected because it has been helping to break the cycle of poverty for its students by providing tuition free, private school education for low income Tucson families, with 85% of their alumni going on to pursue higher education.
