From two signature golf tournaments to our annual gala in the fall, Stepping Stones of Hope relies on the generosity of the community – individuals, businesses and corporations – to keep our lights on and fund our many grief programs, keeping registration fees for campers as low as possible. Below is a list of how you can get involved in our fundraising events throughout the year:

  • 14th Annual Celebration of Life, Love and Memories Gala - Saturday, December 2, 2017 at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch - click here for more information
  • Samantha Invitational Golf Tournament - October 7, 2017 at Calippe Preserve in California


As always you can always make simple cash donations if you are unable to sponsor or attend one of our events. Every penny is greatly appreciated.
