- A New Leaf – $10,000 for Faith House and Autumn House Shelters to address domestic violence
“Mesa does a great job of taking care of its own, and we are honored to partner with these organizations who really know how to meet the needs of our community,” said Westgate Painted Mountain Golf Resort. General Manager Jan Gabrelcik. “The celebration is our way of saying ‘Thank you’ and a terrific opportunity to connect with those who help our community grow and prosper.”
The Foundation focuses on awarding grants to organizations that support its mission of Strong Families | Strong Workforce. If families are equipped to break through barriers, then they keep working or quickly return to work and pave their own path to self-sufficiency and success. A strong workforce means thriving communities where people want to live and vacation.
These local grants are part of the Foundation’s $1 million philanthropic investment in 65 nonprofits located in communities across the country where Westgate operates. In addition to the grant awards, the resort team provides additional support to the Mesa community by volunteering with these organizations throughout the year.
