                      Civic Pride Ambassadors - Who We Are

The Glendale Civic Pride Ambassadors have been in existence since 1994, when Mayor Elaine Scruggs initiated a volunteer citizens group to assist the city in increasing people’s awareness of the good things Glendale has to offer. The Ambassadors’ mission has become: to enhance the economic, social and cultural vitality of Glendale.

Our Mission

The Glendale Civic Pride Ambassadors are an organization of citizens with a deep sense of pride in their community dedicated to enhancing the economic, social, and cultural vitality of Glendale.

President’s Message

Greetings Everyone!

The Ambassadors are now in our 22nd year! We have had a busy year working the Special Events in downtown Glendale and pursuing our goal to obtain our first Sister City. We are proud to announce that we are drawing up paperwork now for our first city in Orland, Norway. We are looking on a "refresh" of our organization. Stay tuned for all the details!



Nancy Lenox
President, Glendale Civic Pride Ambassadors

Community Involvement

GCPA is a member of the Glendale Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Glendale Chamber of Commerce. Both organizations provide ongoing opportunities to stay connected with many of the business owners in Glendale and the West Valley through networking events. Additionally, we partner with many local nonprofit groups in fundraising and other community events that benefit Glendale and West Valley residents.

A Busy Event Season Ahead for GCPA

The Ambassadors are busy from late November through February working the downtown Glendale Special Events, Glendale Glitters, the holiday weekends in the park during December, the Glitter and Glow Block Party in January and the Chocolate Affaire in February. This is our primary fundraising opportunity each year. Our members love the hustle and bustle of these events and the interaction with the visitors to downtown Glendale. Look for us in our red shirts in the Glendale Civic Pride beverage booth and around the event area!

GCPA has Given Back $309,000 to the Glendale Community

Donations made by the Glendale Civic Pride Ambassadors this past year have included the City of Glendale Police Department to sponsor one officer’s attendance at the annual Unity Tour in Washington DC, and to the Glendale Fire Department for their Crisis Response Team for assistance with volunteer uniforms and other needed items for the Crisis Response van. We also helped sponsor the Glendale Summer Band again this year. We are proud to also be one of the sponsors of the newly formed Glendale Farmer's Market! Our total funding to date is $309,000!
