In everything we do, we are dedicated to the elimination of, and suffering from, HIV and AIDS.

How We Help


Aunt Rita's fundraising events that raise critical funds to support our 14 partner agencies are AIDS Walk Arizona and 5K Run, RED is the Night, and SAVORlife. Aunt Rita's also hosts the RED Brunch Gala to commemorate World AIDS Day and raise funds to sustain our programs and initiatives. Attend one of our fundraising events to support HIV and AIDS services in Arizona!


We provide funding to 14 local HIV/AIDS Service Agencies that deliver an array of essential services to people living with HIV, or at-risk for HIV. Services provided by these agencies include testing, treatment, prevention, substance use counseling, housing, harm reduction, behavioral health, and more. We fund each of our partner agencies equally so we can broadly support the entire HIV service community.

Programs / Services

Our outreach and awareness campaigns through HIVAZ Connect engage the general public to promote HIV prevention and testing. Eliminating the stigma of HIV infection is a key goal of these campaigns to enable honest discussions about HIV risk and transmission.
