Athletes from tennis, golf, football, hockey and baseball have turned to ACF and the Jerry Colangelo Center for Sports Philanthropy for their charitable giving.
A generous philanthropist and one of the most influential leaders in business and sports in Arizona and nationally, Jerry Colangelo partnered with the Arizona Community Foundation to encourage athletes to support causes of personal importance and create a personal legacy.
Arizona Athletic Trainers Initiative
ACF Board member Dr. Javier Cárdenas, along with representatives from the Phoenix Suns, Arizona Coyotes and Arizona Cardinals, established a collaborative fund at the Arizona Community Foundation. This Colangelo Center fund, called the Arizona Athletic Trainers Initiative, is raising philanthropic resources with the goal of providing an athletic trainer for every post-season high school game in Arizona.
