We are fortunate to be able to support the communities in which we operate, much the same way Sam Kitchell envisioned when he founded Kitchell in 1950. Sam believed philanthropy was an essential part of doing business and supported causes that were important to him personally and to the greater Phoenix community. While the communities where we contribute have evolved over the years, this tenet has not changed. Kitchell is known as one of the top corporate givers in our industry due to the ongoing commitment of our employees to engage, volunteer and give to causes that are important to our company and to our communities.
The Kitchell Foundation is recognized as a tax-exempt entity under section 501(c)(3) of the IRS. Donations are tax-deductible as allowed by law. All gifts and disbursements are acknowledged and administered by the Arizona Community Foundation.
