As the founder and CEO of Arizona Leadership Foundation (ALF) Aaron Muth brings his passion for fundraising to this worthy endeavor. In 2011, Aaron, an alumnus of St. Mary’s High School in Phoenix, started working with the school in development to help them raise additional scholarship support. When an overwhelming amount of corporate support for the program came in, it created what is now Arizona Leadership Foundation by having enough funding to help other schools with student scholarships. In the years since the Foundation’s inception, it has grown to over $20 million dollars in annual contributions. Since 2011, ALF has awarded over $60 million in scholarships to low income and disabled/displaced students across Arizona at 175 different schools.
