We are a non-profit organization started in July, 2011, to continue the work of the Scottsdale Pride Commission which was dissolved by the Scottsdale City Council that year.



    We bring people together to support community events and causes that make Scottsdale better! By coordinating volunteer efforts, and "getting the word out."



    Interested in making Scottsdale a better place? Volunteer for one of our many community events on our Calendar page!
