Amity Foundation received a $1 million grant from the Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco to help build Dragonfly Village, a state-of-the-art center for children and families at Amity Foundation’s Circle Tree Ranch, 10500 E. Tanque Verde Road.

 The Emerald Foundation formed by the late Frances McClelland, co-owner of Shamrock Foods, awarded an initial $250,000 grant toward the cost of planning and gaining approval for the construction. Architectural plans were completed by GD&A and have been approved by Pima County.

Amity Foundation will facilitate a capital campaign and provide five acres of real estate, a father’s residency, a swimming pool and other amenities for Dragonfly Village. Dragonfly Village also will accommodate up to 100 family members annually. The Village will feature ten children’s and women’s residences and a community center with dining, childcare, study centers, faculty and classrooms.
