Join us September 17-22, 2023 to celebrate community, giving back and being #SunnysideStrong!


Each year during Sunnyside Gives Week we come together to raise funds to invest in the work of the Sunnyside Foundation with a series of events bringing community together.

This year we aim to raise $110,000!


Whether you donate, volunteer or attend our events your support will strengthen students, educators and families on Tucson's southside.

With you, we are #SunnysideStrong!
