40th Anniversary Events

Tickets for “An Evening with Matthew Desmond,” featuring the Pulitzer-Prize winning author of “Evicted” and “Poverty, by America,” on Dec. 12 at the Fox Tucson Theatre can be purchased here.

"An Evening with Matthew Desmond" Sponsorship Opportunities

We would like to thank the Primavera Foundation Board of Directors for being the presenting sponsor of the important event: “An Evening with Matthew Desmond,” featuring the author of “Evicted” and “Poverty, By America.” Other sponsorships are available to ensure that Primavera continues to guide people on pathways to success today and into the future.

Your gift means more families will get emergency housing and learn financial strategies so they can get back on their feet or even own a home. It means more Primavera participants will receive job skills and gain living-wage work. It means fewer people in the Tucson area will have to spend the night unhoused or unfed. You can change lives for the better with your gift.

  • Your gift of $1,000 can house a Tucson family of four for an entire month. 
  • Your $10,000 sponsorship can give that same family housing and food for over five months.

Contact Margarita Bauza at mbauza@primavera.org if you are interested in sponsoring this event.
