In the Community
“Let us, then, not blunt the noble impulses of mankind by reducing charity to a mechanical operation of the federal government. Let us, by all means, encourage those who are fortunate and able to care for the needs of those who are unfortunate and disabled. But let us do this in a way that is conducive to the spiritual as well as the material well-being of our citizens – and in a way that will preserve their freedom.” – Barry Goldwater
Goldwater Institute associates enjoy participating in community activities and lending assistance to those who need a helping hand. We do not use Goldwater Institute resources for these projects, but undertake them using our own time and personal resources. We have been able to assist at-risk youth in Phoenix, wounded warriors across the United States, and orphans in Sri Lanka. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have a project that needs volunteers in our local community or around the world.
In June 2014, Goldwater Institute associates teamed up to assist the Child Crisis Center with a back-to-school supply drive. Through friendly team competition, our associates filled an SUV with school supplies and backpacks for at-risk and foster children so they could have a great start to their school year.
