Our Story

jen_matt_11.2022.jpg

Matt and Jennifer Armer are owners of Armer Air, an HVAC company located in Phoenix, Arizona.

As they began to grow this business and work with the local community, a need emerged. Jennifer found herself meeting families with children facing extreme medical conditions and struggling to find ways to meet their financial obligations with looming medical bills growing.

Jennifer volunteered to organize yard sales, blood drives, and other fundraising efforts to assist these families. At that time, Matt approached Jennifer with the idea of starting her own non-profit organization. From Matt growing up with Type-1 Diabetes, to watching a close friend's 10-year-old daughter succumb to cancer, she knew her foundation was going to support children with medical needs.

 

The Armer Foundation For Kids was created at the beginning of 2019 with a mission to support children with extreme medical needs.

Our mission

To reduce financial barriers for families so that they can care for their children with chronic or life-altering diseases.

Our VIsion

To ensure no child sees their family stress due to a medical condition.

what we do

We believe a family's main focus should be on the welfare and health of their child, not on medical bills or other financial burdens.

To alleviate this stress, we focus our efforts on the specific needs of each family we help through fundraisers, blood drives, various events, and community donations.

One of the ways we fundraise is through our various events.
