Aunt Rita’s Foundation has a long-standing commitment to ending HIV in Arizona. Since our inception in the 1980s, when we began as a humble bake-sale fundraiser for those being impacted by HIV, we have evolved into the leading philanthropy nonprofit organization in the state, delivering vital funding for programs in at-risk communities and playing a central role in the fight against rising HIV infections.
Through our initiatives, we have granted millions of dollars in support of HIV education, prevention and treatment programs across Arizona.
As the hub of the HIV community, we offer programs that “fill in the gaps,” including FREE at-home HIV test kits, FREE HIV/STI testing statewide through our partners at Albertsons/Safeway Pharmacies and Sonora Quest Labs, advocacy, HIV & Aging programs, a Positive Empowerment Youth Retreat, and a Diversity and Culture Council to support minority populations and advise on best practices for lowering incidence rates in our highest-risk communities.
At Aunt Rita’s Foundation, we recognize that social determinants of health play a crucial role in individuals’ health outcomes and quality of life. We provide programming, linkages to HIV prevention and treatment providers, and connections to basic needs such as nutrition support and housing.
Your support of Aunt Rita’s Foundation will enable us to continue operating these critical programs and help us end the HIV epidemic in our great state. Join us today in our mission to create a healthier and more equitable Arizona.
