Apartments Give Back

AMCF (Arizona Multihousing Charitable Foundation)

The Arizona Multihousing Charitable Foundation (AMCF) is the philanthropic arm of the AMA! The Arizona Multihousing Association believes in giving back to the community through charities that impact our members and their residents. Since 2005, the AMCF Big Hearts Committee and dedicated members of the AMA have raised over $1.2M to support local and statewide charities. In 2022, the funds raised through AMCF Big Hearts will go to our beneficiaries listed below. 

Members of the AMCF Big Hearts Committee host annual fundraising events such as the Bowl-A-Thon, Car Raffle, Silent Auction, Dollar-A-Door campaign and more. We believe by working together as an industry, we can and will make a difference. View 2022 Fundraisers.
