About Us

Support the healthcare needs of our community.

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 journey began in 1908, with 16 women volunteering to visit patients at St. Luke’s Home, a tuberculosis sanatorium. These volunteers become The Board of Visitors who in addition to visiting patients began raising funds for the sanitorium which eventually became St. Luke’s Hospital. When the hospital sold in 1996, The Board of Visitors became a 501(c)(3) and continued fundraising for the healthcare needs of the community.

The Board of Visitors raises funds through donations and three fundraisers. The Annual Charity Ball, Arizona’s oldest fundraising event, Care Card Arizona’s largest retail fundraiser and the Fashion Show Luncheon which for more than 65 years kicks off the holiday season.
