The Sunnyside Unified School District Foundation is an independent, 501c3 non-profit organization. We rely on donations from community members, foundations and corporations for support.
Unrestricted gifts allow us the most flexibility to serve the current needs of students, teachers and schools. We are happy, however, to accommodate donors who choose to support a specific program or Excellence in Education Grant. Some donors are particularly passionate about a certain school or wish to use their funds to create a scholarship program or make a directed gift. Other donors find they can help us most through planned giving.
Please contact your tax advisor to find out the tax benefits when considering gifts of real estate, stock and other securities.
Special Friends of Sunnyside who make a sustaining monthly contribution through their credit cards… Supplementing the traditional education experience in ways that maximize the effectiveness of teachers and result in enhanced student experiences and achievements.

While most donors to the Sunnyside Unified School District Foundation allow us to apply their gifts to the area of greatest need, some have a particular passion they want us to advance. Whether funding grants for a particular Excellence in Education Mini Grant area, for a particular school, or for creating a scholarship in memory of a loved one, the Foundation is pleased to facilitate each donor’s specific wishes.
Planned giving involves integrating a charitable gift into a donor’s overall financial, tax and estate planning objectives, so as to maximize benefits to the donor and the Sunnyside Unified School District. Examples include:
- • Donations of personal residences, commercial buildings or land which can be structured as outright gifts, remainder gifts or life-income producing assets.
- • A bequest can be included in a donor’s will for a specific dollar amount or a portion of your estate.
- • A life insurance policy naming the Sunnyside Unified School District Foundation as owner and beneficiary offers donors a tax deduction for the cash value of the policy.
Employees of the Sunnyside Unified School District have the opportunity to contribute to the Sunnyside Foundation through the appropriate designation during the annual payroll deduction drive.
Employees of other local businesses with United Way payroll deductions may write in the Foundation’s name and address on their payroll deduction form and the donation will benefit our schools. Employees of the State of Arizona may also designate the Sunnyside Foundation during their annual giving campaign.
