Join TMF at the Big Catz Culinary Experience Fundraiser

TigerMountain Foundation’s garden initiatives are special because people from all walks of life selflessly come together to help others in need. That’s how in 2020, we provided almost 54,000 meals of fresh, naturally grown produce to Maricopa county residents, many of them from socially and economically disadvantaged neighborhoods located in food deserts. But what matters more to us than produce is the lifeblood of TigerMountain Foundation: you. Our supporters like yourself are incredibly vital to our mission. You are the foundation on which we are built. TigerMountain Foundation provides many opportunities to give back and organizes fundraising events in Phoenix.

Support The Phoenix, AZ Community

And, frankly, 2020 was a rough year for everyone.  Quarantine has still kept our communities apart.  TigerMountain Foundation has consistently been an organization focused on connecting our communities and breaking down the social isolation that many communities suffer regardless of a pandemic.  This is another reason we are holding this event: to safely bring our community back together, reconnect, eat together, and celebrate the beauty we possess as whole. Let’s celebrate our local artists and creatives and enjoy a sunset meal on the farm.

Fundraising Events in Phoenix, AZ 

Be a Big Cat and join us for the great reconnection of 2021, the Big Catz Culinary Experience. Each of you are big catz in our eyes, devoted to ending income and food insecurity. Be ready for a wonderful celebration that honors the diversity, empowerment, and accomplishments of TigerMountain Foundation. It will bring together community supporters, farmers, and members to enjoy a cultural culinary tour-experience of our oasis in the desert. We owe it to you to share an evening together. There is no way we could do the impactful work we do without a hand from others.

Join us April 1st, 2021 from 5 PM to 7:30 PM at the Spaces of Opportunity

This is an in-person event with required face mask usage and social distancing. Luckily, our Spaces of Opportunity space is nearly 20 acres big, so distancing will not be a challenge!

All fundraiser proceeds will benefit Phoenix communities facing food and/or income insecurity. Our efforts are especially strong in the South Phoenix area where the recidivism (return back to jail) rate is 81% — one of the highest in the nation. But we’re changing that: 80% of TigerMountain participants stay in school or out of jail. And you can help us make that even higher.

At the end of our day, our ultimate mission is to empower people by building sustainable community gardens, providing life skills support and workforce development through neighborhood revitalization and beautification​.​ We hope to act as a change agent for healthy living – a healthy community where all citizens can reach their maximum potential. It certainly takes a village to accomplish this, and we are glad to have you at our side. We hope you are able to join us in-person during the evening of April 1st, 2021!

If you prefer to not come in-person to this fundraiser and still want to contribute, please donate to TigerMountain Foundation online (we are a 501(c)3 organization so you can claim a tax deduction). TigerMountain Foundation is a Qualifying Charity for the Arizona Tax Credit and you may be able to take a tax deduction. Your donation will make a significant difference in our ability to help others. Show your support here.

About TigerMountain Foundation

Our mission is simple: To empower communities to better themselves from within. We do this through community garden volunteer work through shared use Community Gardens/Incubator Farms, other cultivated spaces of opportunity in Phoenix, AZ and landscaping initiatives. In South Phoenix, and other challenged communities where we work, there are high rates of incarceration, poor health choices and a low ranking education system. So how do we combat these challenges? Asset Based Community Development (ABCD). This means we don’t give a hand out, we give the community a hand up and empower our community stakeholders. TigerMountain Foundation provides many opportunities to give back and organizes fundraising events in Phoenix.
