Board of Directors


The Cascade Foundation of Southern Arizona, Inc., a 501(c)3 organization, was formed to provide a local network of resources for the bleeding disorder community in Southern Arizona.  We are proud to work in collaboration with the Arizona Hemophilia Association in an effort to provide a wide range of programs and services to the entire state of Arizona.

The board of directors is comprised of local business professionals and community leaders who volunteer their efforts so that your generous donations can be utilized to fully fund the programs and services we support in the community.

Please let us know how we can help you or improve our services to the community.
