The Board of Visitors
The Board of Visitors, Arizona’s oldest women’s charitable organization, has been raising funds for more than 100 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 $19 million has been awarded to nonprofits in the greater Phoenix community. For more information, please visit www.boardofvisitors.org

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.
