Event Sponsorship

Together, we accomplish so much

TCAA hosts signature annual fundraising events to benefit individuals and families striving to overcome poverty and homelessness and live independently in their community of choice.

VICINITY Tempe is our signature fundraising event held in October each year.  A variety of Holiday Giving events are held in December for the families and single adult/senior participants of our programs, including the Adopt a Family program and senior holiday meals. The increasingly popular Tempe Empty Bowls event takes place in February each year to benefit hunger relief programs offered by TCAA and our partner, United Food Bank.

Annual sponsorship opportunities include:



Tempe Community Action Agency's 15th Annual VICINITY Tempe event will honor our 53-year history of service to economically vulnerable populations living in Tempe and surrounding communities. This popular event also celebrates Tempe’s vast culinary and cultural diversity by showcasing a variety of wine, craft beer and delectable creations from our favorite local establishments. The evening festivities will feature a variety of small plate food and wine samplings, live music, and a fabulous silent auction.  

Anticipating an even larger audience than last year of approximately 400 guests, VICINITY Tempe seeks to engage, enlighten and empower attendees to join in TCAA's meaningful and life-changing work in the areas of hunger relief, poverty and homelessness. Event proceeds help support TCAA's comprehensive basic needs programs and services for low-income individuals and families at their greatest time of need. 

Holiday Lights

Each year in early December, TCAA assembles a large team of volunteers to go out to homes all around Tempe and put up 2-3 strands of holiday lights and timers to bring holiday cheer to those who could use it most – the homebound, disabled and elderly who could not otherwise install holiday lights themselves.

Holiday Lunch Meals for Seniors

Consider sponsoring a table at one of our annual Holiday Lunch Meals for seniors. Special holiday celebrations are held for seniors at our Tempe and Scottsdale senior centers. Your company’s logo will be displayed at the table(s) your company sponsors.

The Thanksgiving Dinner:
Friday, November 22nd at the North Tempe and Granite Reef Center

Holiday Meal with Santa:
Friday, December 20th at the North Tempe Senior Center
Employees are encouraged to attend and help serve the meals and enjoy the celebration alongside participants.

Adopt a Family

Bring delight to a family that is going through a difficult time through our Adopt a Family Program. You can sponsor a family this holiday season, and your donation will be used towards the purchase gift cards for teens and parents, and toys for children from disadvantaged households and attending TCAA programs.
