12 months of giving

The Season of Giving Lasts all Year

We are excited to present the 12 Months of Giving, which highlights a few of the projects made possible by you – our Desert Financial members – in partnership with local organizations.

This is just a small sample of the good that is happening in our community year-round. Many organizations are putting forth incredible efforts to make Arizona a better place to live, work, play and worship. We are grateful to be able to serve alongside them and good people like you.

We invite you to join us in renewing a commitment to give back to our community this upcoming year. Follow the links to volunteer with or donate to the organizations we’ve mentioned.

We wish you and yours a prosperous and safe holiday season. Thank you for being a part of Desert Financial.
