Project Completion Final Overview

Project - Christmas Tree (2015)

The Foundation donated a twelve-foot Christmas Tree for the outside of the Sunland Village Auditorium

Project - New Tennis Court - (2016)

The Sunland Village Foundation worked with the Sunland Village Tennis Club to raise $70,000 to help fund the cost of providing an additional tennis court in Sunland Village. The Tennis Club raised $18,000 during December, 2014. They raised additional funds during January and February 2015 through concerts and dance events. They continued fundraising projects throughout 2015 & 2016. Not all of their fundraising projects involve the Foundation. However, when they request their members to raise large amounts of money through personal donations, those funds were held by the Foundation until the project was completed. In the event that the project is unsuccessful the funds held by the Foundation will be returned to the donors.

Project - Work with the City of Mesa to upgrade and enhance the plantings around the outside of the Village. (2017, 2018, 2019, 2020)

The Foundation has begun communicating with the City of Mesa to upgrade and enhance the plantings around the outside of Sunland Village. The area between the outside wall and the sidewalk is owned and maintained by the City of Mesa. The Foundation would like the City of Mesa to take more positive action to clean up, prune, destroy, and provide new plantings. While the process to upgrade and enhance the area gets underway, the Sunland Village Hiking Club has begun a schedule of picking up debris around the outside of the Village in an effort to make the outside of the Village more attractive. No budget has yet been established for this project.
