Suns Charities
Our Mission
Phoenix Suns Charities was founded in 1988 with the mission to benefit organizations that assist the needs of children and families in Arizona. Due to the generosity of fans and sponsors, and underwriting by the team, Phoenix Suns Charities has experienced steady growth and now distributes more than a million dollars annually to hundreds of local charities. Since its inception, Phoenix Suns Charities has donated more than 33 million dollars to worthy Arizona organizations.

Our History
Phoenix Suns Charities was the vision of original Phoenix Suns Chairman and CEO Jerry Colangelo. Upon his purchase of the team in 1987, he began to assemble a board of community leaders to oversee the formation and operation of a charitable effort that would reflect the Suns mission to be a constant leader in improving the quality of life in our community. Current Suns managing partner, Robert Sarver, has extended the reach of the charity by involving additional community stakeholders who work in partnership with Phoenix Suns Charities to further leverage and steward the donations that come in to the foundation.
