Phoenix Children's Hospital Fundraiser

Thanks to the efforts of our staff, members, partners and the community, we raised $607,000 for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals (CMNH) to support the 1 Darn Cool School at Phoenix Children’s Hospital (PCH). This is an all-time record for fundraising, exceeding last year’s record total by $42,000.

The on-site school at PCH allows children to keep up with their academics while receiving treatment. Multiple studies show that when children continue their education, it helps them maintain a greater sense of normalcy, which improves mental health and healing.

For this year’s check presentation, we invited the dedicated teachers at PCH to our offices for a special surprise. We unveiled our newly remodeled PCH Conference Room, which features photos of PCH and some of the patients they’ve helped. We also presented each teacher with flowers and a gift card to show our appreciation.

We’ve been committed to PCH and the 1 Darn Cool School program for many years, and we recently surpassed $5.5 million in fundraising!

“We’re honored to partner with an organization that helps so many in our community,” said Ron Amstutz, executive vice president at Desert Financial. “Our remodeled conference room helps us showcase the amazing work they do at PCH, and to share our commitment to help PCH provide hope and healing for children.”
