Since 2001, BHHS Legacy Foundation and Legacy Connection have supported projects, programs, and organizations that improve health and quality of life for those in our community who are most in need. Their funding focuses on four key areas: increasing access to healthcare; improving community health; expanding Arizona’s healthcare workforce; and strengthening the community.

Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary has had the pleasure of working with BHHS Legacy Foundation and Legacy Connection for over ten years.  We have a great working relationship with CEO,Gerald Wissink, who has assisted us numerous times with matching grants for the back to school programs we participate with Vista del Camino.


This year it is our pleasure to provide Scottsdale Community Partners with a check for $12,000, ($5,000 from Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary Foundation, $1,000 from Jake Duffy (President of Scottsdale Sunrise Rotary), and the BHHS match of $6,000).  This will assist in financing the July 2019 Scottsdale Back to School that assists over 1,000 Scottsdale children in need.  We are thankful to Gerry and BHHS Legacy Foundation and Legacy Connection in helping us provide this assistance.
