THE BOARD OF VISITORS

The Board of Visitors, Arizona’s oldest women’s charitable organization, has been raising funds for more than 110 years to support nonprofits in the greater Phoenix community that serve the healthcare needs of women, children and the elderly. 

The Board of Visitors is recognized for its tradition of leadership and community service − generations of caring women working for a healthier community. The journey began in 1908 with 16 women volunteering to visit patients at St. Luke’s Home, a tuberculosis sanatorium. When the St. Luke’s Hospital sold in 1996, The Board of Visitors formed its own 501(c)(3). 

Thanks to the generous support of the Board’s fundraising efforts, over $21 million has been awarded to nonprofits in the greater Phoenix community that serve the healthcare needs of women, children and the elderly. For more information, please visit  www.boardofvisitors.org

FOUNDATION FOR BLIND CHILDREN

The mission of Foundation for Blind Children is to provide education, tools and services that enable all persons with vision loss to achieve greater independence.The nonprofit organization defines vision loss as a diagnosis, not a disability. 

Founded in 1952, the Foundation is an essential resource to families and children with blindness or low vision. Serving all ages, from birth to currently 102 years old, it is the only agency of its kind in Arizona.

With three Valley locations (East Valley, West Valley and Central Phoenix), FBC teaches children to reach their highest potential – giving hope and inspiration to parents by challenging, supporting and celebrating the progress their kids make.  These students climb mountains, attend college, secure employment and succeed. Nothing is impossible at Foundation for Blind Children. For more information please visit www.seeitourway.org
