Support The Board of Visitors Today

About Us

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 net proceeds from our fundraisers are used to award grants that support our mission.

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 our fundraising efforts, we have had the opportunity to grant over $23 million to nonprofits in the greater Phoenix community.

The BOV raises funds through donations and three fundraisers. The Annual Charity Ball, our signature event, has been held for more than 100 years. Generations of families celebrate the Flower Girls as they are presented to the community at Arizona’s oldest and most elegant Ball. For more than two decades, Care Card has been Arizona’s largest retail fundraiser. The Fashion Show Luncheon has kicked off the holiday season for more than 60 years.
