Creighton Community Foundation was established in 2013 to support low-income Creighton School District #14 and surrounding communities within east-central Phoenix boundaries. 

Our mission is to develop sustainable programs and initiatives to help improve youth life outcomes. We focus on building vibrant, healthy communities where strong neighborhoods, inspirational adult connections, and excellent, well-supported schools help kids reach their full life potential. Will you help inspire a kid today? Your gift that helps put healthy food on a kid's table this week is a significant first step. 

A key part of our programming, we aim to put our community members on a food security pathway, as most of our neighborhoods exist in food deserts. This pathway has 5 steps; first, we begin by providing emergency food boxes almost every Saturday morning - feeding almost 400 families each week. In addition to our emergency food box program, we also host a medical food box program, which provides low glycemic foods to those with diabetes. People who receive food boxes are encouraged to apply for S.N.A.P. (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program), and we provide assistance in filling out that application. While people are waiting to hear if they qualify for benefits, we hold nutritional classes and educational events to teach people how to best utilize them. For example, many farmers markets provide Double Up Food Bucks for S.N.A.P. recipients, which doubles the amount of produce one is able to purchase. We also host two community gardens in neighborhoods that are 65% below the poverty line, empowering those communities to be sustainable and resilient. Finally, throughout this whole process, neighbors are connected to not only resources, but also to one another, fostering a sense of community.
