This summer, SunWest embarked on a three-month journey to positively impact our community. Not only did we accomplish our goal, but we knocked it out of the park. Of course, we couldn’t have done it without your support in helping out a few nonprofit organizations.
When we created “Refinance for a Reason,” we had two goals in mind– help our members save money while strengthening the community. We did this by promising to donate $50 for every auto loan that was refinanced through SunWest. Each month this summer focused on a different nonprofit organization that we believed to be an extraordinary group of people working together for a good cause. For instance, we kicked off the program in June with the Phoenix Children’s Hospital, which meant that we donated $50 for every auto loan refinanced through the end of the month. July was dedicated solely to the 100 Club of Arizona and August was set aside for the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and the Home Fur Good Animal Shelter.
As a result of our “Refinance for a Reason” campaign, we were able to raise $15,000 for the organizations that truly make a difference in the world today. While these organizations may have different goals, they do share one similarity. You see, we picked these nonprofits because of their devotion to improving lives and helping those who can’t do it alone. Whether their mission is to help sick children, assist the families of fallen firefighters, or rescue our sweet furry friends, we couldn’t be happier with the choice to help them accomplish their goals. Check out how these organizations have touched lives and strengthened their community.
Founded in 1983, Phoenix Children’s has been caring for sick children with compassion, devotion, and an unrelenting desire to solve even the most dire of medical cases for 31 years. While it may be one of the largest children’s hospitals in the country, funding and support is still needed to provide the best care for our children through advanced research and expert administration. In case you need a little more evidence that Phoenix Children’s is making a positive difference in the world today, check out this story on how this special children’s hospital helped a family find answers.

The 100 Club of Arizona:
This amazing nonprofit has been helping the families of firefighters and police officers who have either been seriously injured or unfortunately killed in the line of duty since 1968. Recently, we had the opportunity to visit their offices and were immediately impressed with how friendly and welcoming the staff was. We left that day overwhelmed with pride and appreciation. We are so honored to have had the chance to partner with such an amazing organization that is truly committed to providing resources and comfort to families in need. Since the 100 Club of Arizona does much more than provide support for families of fallen officers, we encourage you to learn more and even consider getting involved.

Humane Society of Southern Arizona:
Perhaps one of the cutest things in the world is to see a thriving, spunky pup playfully antagonizing his owners to give him all the love and attention he needs. If you’re like the staff here at SunWest, animals have a special place in your heart and you would do anything to keep them safe. Unfortunately, not all animals are given the same love and affection you provide your pets on a daily basis.
That is why it is so important to have organizations like the Humane Society of Southern Arizona that care deeply for these animals and have the resources available to ensure they finally find their forever home. The HSSA has been helping animals in need since 1944 and it appears it is just getting started. Not only does this nonprofit provide shelter, love, and care for homeless and abandoned animals, but the staff also provides low-cost vaccinations as well as low-cost spay and neuter services.

Home Fur Good Animal Shelter:
If you have been following our blog, you know that SunWest is all about supporting our employees and their personal connections to admirable nonprofits. One such nonprofit is the Home Fur Good Animal Shelter, which one of SunWest’s very own holds close to her heart. Similar to the Humane Society of Southern Arizona, Home Fur Good does an excellent job in caring for and providing long-term homes for animals in need.
Every animal deserves a loving forever home–you can do your part to help by checking out their adoptable animals here.
