Foundation Wish List
A Place for GTSF to Call Home
GTSF is currently seeking the donation of a commercial building in the southwest part of the Valley and/or contributions to a capital campaign to secure a home of our own. GTSF’s unique programming needs would best be served with a minimum 10,000 square foot combination office/warehouse facility. If you or someone you know would like to help turn this wish into a reality, please contact Tony Berti at 702-617-4027.
To move into long term sustainability.

Sponsor A Shoe Distribution Event for 400 students at Local Title 1, Tier 1 School
GTSF is currently seeking sponsors to lend support to our spring 2019 shoe distribution programming events, each of which provides up to 400 school-age children in need with new shoes and socks. All of our 25 annual distributions, allow children (some of whom have NEVER had a new pair of shoes) the opportunity to choose a brand new pair of shoes of their choice with the help of a caring community volunteer. In addition, each child receives a six-pack of socks, and often more. Each distribution event brings together 50 corporate-affiliated and/or individual community volunteers to work one-on-one with the anticipating children and ensure each child receives the individual attention they deserve.
The cost associated with GTSF providing a child in need with new shoes, six pairs of socks and often more at their location is approximately $25; $2500 per 100 or $10,000 for each of our highly-coordinated shoe distribution events outfitting 400 kiddos in need.
GTSF works directly with manufacturers to secure high-quality, name brand sneakers at a negotiated rate of less than $25. We both purchase product and receive product donations from a number of manufacturers, brands and retailers. This allows us to outfit each child with new shoes and socks on-site at a blended rate of only $25 per participant. The value of the product a participating child takes home, however, typically ranges from $80 to $120 depending on the product they choose during the distribution process.
In addition to the shoes and socks, GTSF often adds ancillary items to its programming like toothbrush kits, backpacks, or school supplies.
