Our strategic partners play a key role in our success as a foundation. These partners share our passion for improving the lives of youth from the inside out. Some of these partners are donors, some are youth organizations that host our program, and some are businesses that provide resources that aid our efforts.
In every community, boys and girls are left to find their own recreation and companionship in the streets. An increasing number of children are at home with no adult care or supervision. Young people need to know that someone cares about them.
Boys & Girls Clubs offer that and more. Club programs and services promote and enhance the development of boys and girls by instilling a sense of competence, usefulness, belonging and influence.
The Boys & Girls Clubs have been a terrific partner. The Boys & Girls Clubs of America are among the largest charities in the U.S. They act as a host for majority of our programs. In 2012 Amenzone Foundation won a National Boys & Girls Club Award for our work with the Vestar Branch. The Vestar branch was also nationally recognized as the #1 overall club that same year.
The Arizona Diamondbacks (often shortened as the D-Backs) are a professional baseball team based in Phoenix, Arizona.
The Arizona Diamondbacks organization have made it clear, they really care about improving their local communities. They invited us and fully paid for our program at their Diamondbacks Boys & Girls Club branch. They also funded our entire program at the Umom New Day Center. In addition they provided game tickets to the families of the Umom program, as well as some of our Boys & Girls Club programs.

For you it means having a new home that comes standard with ENERGY STAR features that save money and energy, month after month, at no extra cost to you.
